A Porsche will be a reliable, long lasting car if well maintained. However, buying a used car can be a risky business because you may find that previous owners have cut corners or deferred maintenance. While it may still not be a bad car, you could have an expensive first year. We offer highly regarded Porsche pre-purchase inspections for all models to give you as much peace of mind as possible as you go through this important purchase.
With our Porsche pre-purchase inspections identifying any issues, you can ask to have them resolved as part of the transaction, negotiate a lower price or, in extreme cases, walk away from the car. In our experience, most dealers involved in selling Porsches are well intentioned and, if a fault is discovered, they will put it right without hesitation. The cost of our Porsche pre-purchase inspections will, in most cases, be more than covered by money saved on repairs post purchase.
We also offer a premium inspection for those who want a borescope check.
“The comments on the rear discs & pads – meant BCS have replaced them. Which immediately offset the cost of the inspection.”
“Very comprehensive – please thank him for me. Will run through line by line with them. Hopefully, all sorted prior to collection. Will definitely use you guys again / recommend.”
We offer two levels of Porsche pre-purchase inspection, both of which have to be paid for before the inspection takes place:
Standard Inspection – £295 plus VAT
A full visual check of all aspects of the car. This includes operation of all significant components. We run a diagnostic check to identify any fault codes and hidden issues. We take the car for a test drive of up to 10 miles such that it is fully warmed through and check for leaks after the test drive.
Premium Inspection – £425 plus VAT
This is the Standard Inspection plus a bore check using a borescope. This is mainly targeted at cars with the M96/M97 engine (996, 997, 986, 987)
