He is selling on behalf of the owner so warranty transferable, my main
concern was getting checked out by OPC for any issues and over rev check as it's a manual.

If it was over-revved before September 2017 it wouldn't have got a new warranty.

FYI the mileage at it's last MOT in August was 32,887.

'MOT checker' shows up something interesting. The car had done 22,433 miles in its first 3 years (to 9/13) and has done only 10.5k in the last 4.5 years.

It looks like it was used regularly early on and sparingly since. That's not necessarily something to be suspicious of but I'd be wondering what circumstances caused the change of use.

It has been owned from new by the Da Haan's (Saga) I guess they have more than one car.

He showed me all invoices including purchase invoice and mots etc.

It's a lot of cash for a first Porsche so I understand your concern but it looks like a great car to me. I hope you don't end up kicking yourself.

Stick to your guns. If 111 point inspection was agreed then agreed it was.

Why would a dealer not go through with this minor inconvenience if he was not hiding something? I would now be highly suspicious and only a clean bill of health from OPC would put my mind at rest. T8 is right about it going back to Tonbridge as they know the car.

White C4S with cocoa worship worship worship worship Grin

I suspect the reluctance for the inspection is only down to the "selling on behalf of the owner" bit! Let's be honest this is a rouse, not sure how it would stack up with Porsche, however the last owner will be listed as the last owner, so not sure how they could ever find out. Unless the dealer took it to the OPC!

Good luck that's a cracker, anything turned up will be remedied anyway (under the existing owners OPC warranty) who I strongly suspect will have to be the one who takes it to the OPC!

Re the price I paid around the same for mine from an OPC although with 19k on the clock, but mine is a 2009, I think the price is about right, especially bearing in mind the remaining warranty Question
