    Check list on Pick up

    Spring is here and I am picking up my new 997S on Tuesday of this week. Anyone have any thoughts on what I should be looking for before accepting delivery? Is there software revs that need to be checked? Other than the owners manual, is there any other documentation that they should be providing?

    Thanks,

    Re: Check list on Pick up

    the PCM manual.checlk to get correct version.

    Check that the car is speced as you ordered it, and for small details all around,i.e scrathes etc. also check the wheels not to be hit, and ask to be explained about PCM functions.
    All functions are coming to operation level at PDI (pre-delivery inspection),before that the electronics are not fully functional.

    I believe that covers you.

    Have a nice drive!;)

    Re: Check list on Pick up

    Make sure they got the NAV DVD installed if you ordered it. Make sure they got ALL of the tape that was used to hold shipping plastic removed. I have found several small pieces especially on the wheels. Make sure they lined up the Porsche crest on the wheels with the pointy end towards the valve stem (How do you move them???) Get all of the documentation that came with the car that you can including of course the window sticker. I was also given a piece of paper (all in German) which looks like a body inspection sheet used ay the port of arrival PDI for marking the location of any body damage (mine had none).

    Congrats and have fun with your new car.

    " window sticker" whats that?

    Re: Check list on Pick up

    Make sure A/C works. Mine didn't until I found it. If you don't want front plate bracket, tell them. Go over it with a fine tooth comb for marks etc. Check tire pressure, mine was low. Have fun!

    Re: Check list on Pick up

    Window sticker or its formal name, Monroney (sp?) sticker, lists all standard features, options, all costs, EPA mileage figures, country of origin, warranty info, and VIN. Required to be on (or available to the purchaser) for all new cars sold in the U.S. Mine actually came laminated from the dealer.

    Re: Check list on Pick up


    Check and make sure the car is in perfect condition, no repainted parts!!! Once you gave them the cheque, you are on your own!!!!!

    Re: Check list on Pick up

    tell that again KLZ!!

    Re: Check list on Pick up

    Seems obvious but don't become passive from the excitement of your new car and demand that any flaws and what they promise to do about it are described in writing. A tactic used by dealers is to promise you earnestly verbally, make you come back several times and then after frustrating you over a period of weeks, and hoping the passage of time has effected your resolve, they try to tell you the flaw or damage was not their fault.

    Re: Check list on Pick up

    oh, another thing: make sure the sticker describing the car and it's options is stuck to the bottom of the front hood (or in with other paper documentation?).

    Overzealous "dealer Prep" by underpaid bottom-rung staff, has sometimes resulted in the sticker being torn off and discarded in an effort to clean the car before delivery.

    I hear that sticker is an important authenticity item and hard to replace.

    Re: Check list on Pick up

    correctly!!! this is the case MMD most of the times.god damn its exactly what they do

    Re: Check list on Pick up

    Thanks for all the suggestions

    I will be picking up the car on Wednesday. The dealer seems to be pretty good and I do not think that there will be any issues. I plan on taking pictures at the time of delivery to keep a good record of how everything was delivered.


    I will make sure I get the 'sticker' for future reference.

    Re: Check list on Pick up

    My only gripe was the amount of goo left behind on the wheels from the protective paper. As usual, with every car I've ever bought new, I spent most of a day getting it TRULY detailed and prepped and ready to go.

    Re: Check list on Pick up

    well mine was in perfect condition. Only think i noticed was avery very small details left on the drivers mirros. Just a paint fault,not worth mentioning as was hard for even me to see almost at the down side of the mirror
