Hello OP, I rarely post on here, rather I lurk and live vicariously. Anyway, I felt your pain, hence my post. I unloaded my 996 18 months ago (how I wish I still had it.....). Still, the point of my post is to suggest that you compare Evans Halshaw against WBAC. They offered (and paid me) c£2.5k more than WBAC. It made all the difference. Good luck.

I take it the 111 point check is very thorough. I feel, knowing my luck it would throw up a few more issues that I would need sorting out before I could take the warranty out.
The Indy garage I took it too said there were things they couldn’t believe OPC hadn’t spotted last time it was in for a warranty issue in August.
Does anybody know if they do bore score checks on the 111 point check. Not that I think I have issues but it would be good to know. I worry with the mileage and truthfully if they do check, I would be absolutely gutted if I was to have this issue as well.

The 111 point check has been discussed recently and the content was merged with an old thread. Scroll to the last few posts on this thread to see.

Any parts that have broken would be covered by your existing warranty. Any wear and tear items won't be covered. Whatever, they would now all need to be fixed before you'd be able to renew the warranty. A borescope is not done as part of the 111 point check.

Biting the bullet and paying out the £216 for a 111 point check might be your best option. Any canny buyer would get that done anyway so it's better that you know the answers before they ask the questions. You never know it might pass which would add value to your asking price. Alternatively you might just decide to hang on to the car knowing it's had a recent clean bill of health.

Obviously if it fails you'd be £216 worse off and will probably still want to get rid but at least you'd have a better idea of the 'cost avoidance' that taking a low offer might balance out.

I really hope you didn't pay over the odds a year ago.

Good Luck

So you’re prepared to take a bath when selling the car to avoid spending £1000 on a warranty or some repairs? How much do you think you stand to lose?

You bought a 10 year old car with over 100,000 miles on it and expected to not spend anything during your ownership? Any car of this age and mileage will need cash spending, not just a 911.

I get that if you have driven it less than 1000 miles it might be an unnecessary extravagance to own a 911 and you might better invest your cash somewhere else. Selling a car like this with a long list of MOT advisories will result in a comparatively low sale price I would think.

Agree

My car has had lots of £££'s work done under OPC warranty, including an engine rebuild and recently a new steering rack.

Having the 111 point inspection does not commit you taking out a warranty, but it could save you a few ££'s on repairs that are currently covered. As mentioned above, at least you will know how bad or good things really are.

My advice, don't make any hasty decisions that you might regret! Hopefully it will work out well for you and you can enjoy the driving experience!
