What EXACTLY is a PPI?

I know what it stands for...but everyone here says to get it, but noone says what Porsche actually does.

Can anyone help?

Pre purchase inspection.

Usually done by a Porsche dealer, takes about 2 hrs to do right. Normally runs from under the car on the lift and then moves upwards.

The actually list varies by dealer but the major items that you worry about (drivetrain, has it been painted or wrecked, brakes, tires, wheel bearings, leaks, etc.) are all covered.

Usually the dealer will show you the list before you hire them.

Invaluable for the used car buyer.

We recommend them here.

Hope that helps.
