Can anyone tell me what this part is?

  • I hope for you that all this is not so serious. Everyone has just so his ideas, as his toy should stand there. And that in the long run, which is what you intend. If you start with six figures, another condition should be possible from my point of view. Underbody washing is not expedient :rf:

  • Dealers have a warranty obligation. Depending on how you are structured, you can first try to clarify the issue on a moderate level, i.e. point out the problem and demand a solution. Or you can go straight to a lawyer. However, this usually costs additional money.

    Again: first have the status done by a qualified Porsche specialist and then accept the expenses or/and discuss them with the dealer.


    .... I can also see NO warranty obligation towards the dealer.


    We are talking about a used car that has no defect in the sense of a warranty at the time of transfer of risk (money against car).


    This optical wear is not nice, but the function is not limited!


    ..... and you (man) must not always immediately involve a lawyer. k:facepalm:


    ...... do I see that possibly wrong? k:unknown:


    .... just my humble opinion. :khat:

  • The car is not free of defects. Even if it was sold on behalf of a customer, I expect a reputable dealer to act as an intermediary. I have already had success with this approach myself. And right, a lawyer is not necessarily useful. It only costs money.

    "Die7er" is just in a stupid situation and needs a perspective on how it could continue.

  • Even from a legal point of view, I would not go so far with the few photos and say that it is not free of defects.


    "On behalf of the customer" is also not per se with legally effective agreed warranty exclusion.


    That there is theater in the enforcement of anything if the seller does not play along should be clear.


    Does not help here now. A well-founded opinion of an expert obtained on site might be advisable, the thread starter asks not without reason. In this price range, it is certainly not bad money.

  • Where the defects are in the sense of "seller's warranty" is not clear to me. The Variocam valves still seem to work, even if they are rusty on the outside.

    The vacuum pumps on the 997 intake usually look the same. As long as the sheet metal housing is not rusted through and leaking, it is only a "blemish" that can be seen by looking under the engine, just like in this case.

    With shock absorbers, you have to pull down the bellows and the auxiliary spring to see the damage to the piston rods.

    A used car with a double-digit age is not a new car, that's just the way it is. That's why it's cheaper.

  • If you know a bit about Porsche 911s, you can see that this car has been carelessly treated and in all likelihood will incur follow-up costs that are questionable for a six-figure purchase. The looks of it suggest that. If it (still) works, that is ignoring experience.

    that may be true, but that is not a defect that falls under warranty / guarantee.

  • It's clear, this should have been assessed at the time of purchase. This is a classic situation: buyer without specific knowledge, seller happy to have a potential buyer for the car. Happens every day. Normally, the car is simply used and sooner or later you are surprised that major repairs become necessary. But with a Porsche, these are different numbers than with a Polo. That's why I see a dealer, who must know this, at least morally, in the duty.

  • Here it already has a few journeymen, to whom I would never want to have to sell a car....


    This was a used purchase, which was even viewed on the lift with the buyer. The engine was not washed, which tends to be an advantage when buying used, because you can see any leaks and sweat spots. And the engine HAS seen salt and is therefore also somewhat tarnished, this IS NORMAL and no reason for possible warranty or other claims.

    If you want a clean engine, then you just have to be active yourself, a simple engine wash certainly brings a lot, dry ice even more. After that, however, you should also take appropriate conservation measures.


    UNd only so as info, also with cleanly cleaned engines it can come to defects or corrosion...
