    Possible to date/time fix DME ignition events?

    If you have already read this on other forums, sorry - move on.

    Just about a week to go before I collect my new C2S. For insurance purposes I had to contact the dealer to get delivery mileage which turns out to be 26 miles. Initially I thought this was high but a quick search showed this to be about the average. However, I then started worrying about what might have happened during those 26 miles, I know some 997 owners have had warranty disputes because of the number of ignitions in ranges 1 to 6 shown on DME data analysis. Hence my question; can the number of ignitions in the ranges 1 to 6 be analysed by date or time such that any mistreatment prior to delivery can be isolated and identified as such? Or is the only safe option to get a DME print-out before taking delivery and has anyone done this?

    Information on DME data can be found at: http://www.rennteam.com/showflat.php?Cat=0&Number=216855&page=&fpart=5&vc=1

    all sorts of things. none of them good.
    once it leaves the factory line, porsche doesn't care what happens. test drivers are plucked at random from un employment lines. they are encouraged to eat lunch while driving. after work they get to take the cars home and take their entire sweaty family out for a drive in the country. the aroma of garlic and body odor lingers for the first few months. if you are really lucky you can find a crumpet under the seat.
    upon arrival at the dealership the salesmen take turns dropping the clutch at 7,500 rpm's. then they practice handbrake turns. use of the clutch when shifting gears is prohibited at all times.
    my advice...buy a '89 volvo wagon and sleep at night.this is not the car for you
