Euro Standard confirmation

Hi community.

Please I need someones help.

I have shipped my 2014 Cayman 2.7 PDK Sports Chrono from Dubai to Italy. It arrived nice and shiny in May and to date I have not been able to register the car there because Porsche Italy WILL NOT issue a certificate stating that the car conforms with Euro standard E6. This prevents me from putting this fantastic car back on the road.

Does anyone out there work for Porsche or know someone at Porsche who can write a note on Porsche documentation stating that a 2014 Porsche Cayman, 2.7ltr PDK with Sports Chrono pack built in Germany b ut shipped to Dubai actually has the same specifications as a car fro the european market. Note, Dubai does not have a special standard requirement and accepts freely cars from Europe so no special alterations were made to the production line car just fro Dubai.

Cheers John K

Good luck in Spain you have to find a engineering specialist to verify imports and complete the documentation.

I don't take checks. Cash, or PayPal only.

You might have better luck on a 981 forum, no?

End in sight

Thanks all especially Cunningr. Finally sorted, car gone to a specialist and will be verified by the Germans. Should have it back just in time for the good weather!

EDC hope all is well. I need togo up there also, as for Italy just really want to see another area. We went to Venice last May and loved it, made us want to see more.
