Its got the porsche warranty and was inspected in April 2018, so they must be happy with its condition etc in order to put that in place.


That's what I read. In which case the 111 check is the best way to go as any issues will be done under warranty. Mileage wise they are bulletproof. I know of a 997.1 with PCCB on 150k+ miles used daily. The pads are less than 50% worn. It does get the odd niggle which is expected given the age/mileage.

Strasse serviced my 964 many times along with the top end rebuild in former owners hands worship

For a few K more id be looking at T8's (Terrys) car Dont know



Thanks SPSP but after just getting back from a trouble free 1,700 mile trip to The Alps I'm not sure it's for sale anymore.

When I get it back from it's well deserved professional detailing this afternoon I'll have a better idea. Wink

I don't think it's too cheap given the mileage. I'd want to examine the service history, is it full, who has been carrying out the servicing? Do they have receipts as well as the book, is the book original or is it a 'replacement'.
Does it have matching N rated tyres? These questions will give you a very good idea of how well the car was looked after.

All main dealer history says car was looked after regardless. I'd say that pretty much the same about the 'main' Porsche independents out there.

What I did find out recently is Strasse Porsche sub-contracts their servicing. So getting into this is a good start. Check MOT history, does it have lots of advisories etc. This is a good way to get feedback on car health (free too)


Why do you say Strasse outsources?
