Porsche Pre Purchase Inspection
At RPM Technik, we offer a comprehensive range of Porsche inspection services.
If you are looking to purchase a Porsche, a pre-purchase inspection will allow you to buy with full visibility of the condition of the vehicle and some understanding of any upcoming maintenance costs. All inspections are completed on the premises and involve a road test, ramp inspection, diagnostic interrogation and cosmetic review of the vehicle including paint depth analysis. Our highly experienced technicians are well versed at these inspections and can use their familiarity with the models to spot accident damage, possible mileage anomalies and to look out for progression of common issues specific to the model.
Our pre-purchase inspection checklist has a comprehensive 111 points on it, takes approximately 3 hours to complete and can be undertaken whilst you wait.
We understand that these inspections are quite often time-critical and will build a little flexibility into the workshop diary to be able to complete these inspections at short notice. If you are buying your Porsche from a private seller or non-Porsche specialist dealer, genuine sellers will usually happily accommodate getting the car to our premises for inspection at the potential buyer’s cost.
A pre-purchase inspection with RPM Technik costs £360 +VAT
The most expensive and complex component in your Porsche is the engine. Porsche makes a fantastic range of engines, however as with all engines, they will not run forever. Poor maintenance or abuse can significantly shorten the engine life. At RPM Technik, we can undertake the following assessments on your Porsche.
- Bore Scope Inspections – camera inspections of the internal surfaces of the combustion chamber – £108 +VAT
- Engine Cylinder Loss Test – Frequently used to ascertain wear on air cooled engines, the loss test will also indicate what components are worn by measuring whether injected air escapes past valves or piston rings. It is also a useful test on water cooled engines – £160 +VAT
- Cylinder Compression Test – This measures the pressure in each cylinder at top dead centre when the air in the cylinder is compressed the most. Useful test for general engine health and comparative pressures between cylinders can be used to help fault diagnosis – £50 +VAT (if completed at the same time as a Cylinder Loss Test or Bore Check)
