2011 Porsche Cayman 987

PostPosted: Wed Oct 03, 2018 3:24 pm    Post subject: End of warranty inspection Reply with quote

My Cayman GTS is three years old at the end of November. I would like to get a thorough inspection done to check if there is any work required that could be sorted before the warranty expires.

What is the consensus on here? Do I get a 111 point check done by the OPC?
It is due a service so I could get it done at the same time. I know it will fail on grills and other additions so will probably not get an extended warranty.

Or do I ask my local Indy to give it a going over?

Thoughts and opinions gratefully received

Get your OPC to carry out any warranty work whilst the warranty is still current. Identifiable work would come to light during the 111 check.

Ask your OPC if they can do a end of warranty inspection as part of the service, I would expect that they would be happy to do it cheaper than a 111 or for free..... I know BMW for instance do it for free.

Thanks. I would prefer to use my OPC so will speak to them and see what they say.

I did a search on here for the 111 check and there are some less than positive reports, but I guess that the positive ones are rarely written about.

my experience:

book it up well in advance
has to be OPC
the warranty has to be issued on the same day the check is done
you pay - though not too much (given what Porsche usually charge...)

I know its crazy, because any thing that is wrong would need to be fixed by them under warranty and they should have spotted these things anyway at a scheduled service.

cunningly though as the service interval is 2 years, when the three years are up you wouldn't normally be bringing it back in for a service as a matter of course...
