    We _Know_ What You Did To Your Car -

    and we will never forget.

    PIWIS the latest OBD system as of MY2006 sends ALL information directly and automatically to PCNA computers in Atlanta via the routine/required dealer service hook up.

    This means all information, lots of it, how many times you floored the gas pedal, rev limiter hits, alarm faults, and God knows what else (RPMs? Modifications? Track-related clues?) goes to PCNA computers and stays in them associated with the car forever.

    Just read this in Panorama.

    Good news for anyone who might want to buy your car after you've taken such good care of it.

    That's not so bad, but in any case I'm so happy I live outside the US.

    Lately, I'd like to live outside the US too; but I'm stuck here

    Anyway, as far as your Porsche goes, according to Panorama the car is set up so it can NOT be serviced without being connected to Porsche's computers somewhere in the world.

    IOW, they can't read fault codes and can't diagnose without being plugged in to Big Brother at Porsche.

    Get your own ODB reader from Durametric if you want to see and clear your codes before taking the car to the dealer!

    Re: We _Know_ What You Did To Your Car -

    Well just digressing on this topic, but who actually owns the data?

    I'm thinking that if Joe Public came along and purchased a second hand P-car would his request for all the information held on their database be denied?

    Good question.

    That "CarFax" operation will tell you if a used car (any used car you might want to buy) has been repaired in a major accident.

    From this it _seems_ the information (the car's "permanent record") is in the public domain.

    Re: We _Know_ What You Did To Your Car -

    Whenyou buy a second hand car, these info are pretty usefull. The question is: can the customer have access to the data or is the dealer gonna say F-off ?
