I get where you are coming from .. it make me cringe when I go to look at a car and the owner feels like he needs to wring it's neck to show you it works.
It would worry me from the perspective that I personally wouldn't treat my pride and joy like that, so why is someone else??
On the other hand, others are right .. they are built to go hard.
I personally just don't see the need to treat it like that. A report to put your mind at ease would definitely be worth it ..
Inspected a 997 turbo manual today, 2008 model. Neat car, but the owner flogged it a dozen times in a 20 min drive, approaching the rev limited on each instance in 1st or 2nd gear. That put me off from the car, but my friends think that's crazy. These machines are designed to be driven in a spirited fashion, but I do worry if it's been flogged this way regularly.
Thoughts? I am being unreasonable? I do think I should get a DME report. Any suggestions where I can get it without paying $900 for a visual PPI?
