Thanks Guys.....wow, great "lock-in" by Porsche for their dealers.

My local dealer is not so hot....they're good at inspecting and diagnosing cars, criticizing 3rd party add-ons, and selling new Porsches.

Now fixing a broken Porsche ? .... not so much.

I've been using  a PIWIS 3 for a little while and it works great and runs circles around the PIWIS 2.  I found intro s faster and easier in almost every aspect except checking overrevs.  


In the PIWiS 3 I've had to run a full VAL ( about 98 pages) and then having to save as PDF and then reading the PDF.


Anyone have a faster easier way to display overrevs on a PIWIS 3?

An OBD VAL will give you over-revs, and only take a few seconds, as it only checks the DME and PDK (if you have it).  Run it from the F7 Additional Menu, and choose Pre-VAL at the end.  When you see the zip file, select it, touch F10 and it will display the over-revs near the end of the report.  You can then print it directly to PDF if you want.
