POC DME readout

If everything goes to plan I will be having a car inspected by POC (not buying from them), discussed this with them and going to have the 111 point inspection and they are also going to check the bores with a borescope.

The car has a POC warranty however after reading AeroAnts thread I am going to ask to see the DME readout, I have read that they can no longer print this out something to do with the latest software they use, is this true?

If I don't get a printout then I will ask them to add this information to the inspection documentation.

Now if someone could help with what I have to look out for I would really appreciate it as maintaining the Warranty going forward is a must for me.

Am I right in thinking?

RR1 - Not an issue (although I will be able to tell if the car has been abused?)
RR2 - Not an issue (although again I will be able to tell if the car has been abused?)
RR3 - Any will invalidate the Warranty (reference AeroAnt thread)
RR4 - Any will invalidate the Warranty

Thanks

Bob
 
If a car doesn't have any RR1 or RR2 numbers I'd be concerned something was up tbh.

I'd take the car to be checked at a specialist not OPC, it'll be a better inspection and probably cheaper too. 111pt check is basically kicking the tyres and making sure everything has the word 'Porsche' stamped in it.

Don't forgot OPC warranty is only transferable between private sales, I assume this is a private sale though.

Thanks and no not a private sale. The dealer told me it had a POC warranty when I was discussing the car with them.

So from what you have just told me then it doesn't. :eek:

That's a damn nuisance as I will have to wait the 90 days before I can get a standalone one, so cheesed off.

The reason I was intending to take it to POC was to safeguard the Warranty.
 
It's not a bad idea at all, but the 111 check should only be used as a guide to whether the car would be accepted for warranty, not as to the overall condition of the car. If you're buying from a reputable dealer then I reckon you'll be fine doing it that way, could also get the seller to discount the £1k that a warranty costs ;)

SOGA will cover you nicely for the 90 days, I'd say go for it if the rest of the deal and car stack up.
 
That I'm not so sure on, as a PDK owner they don't tend to worry me ;) I'd say that your assumption looks accurate to me as a basic rule, although strip down and tests can make an RR3 car eligible I think.

I agree with having the car tested/inspected by a specialist. The only problem might come in regards to the warranty if you want the Porsche warranty you will still need to have the car checked by whichever OPC you choose to use.
If over-rev 3 or 4 show up it AFAIK you will need to have a leak-down test @ the bare minimum and there is no guarantee it will be warrantied. From the conversations i had with Porsche CS they said they can reject cars with minimal over-revs in 3 onwards but it would assume its done on a case by case basis.

Regards range 1 and 2 - it seems Porsche expect them to be there and don't see them as a problem. I think there was a few thousand RR1 and RR2's on my car before i bought it.
