Hey Nazy... you are kind of in a tough spot with the PPI. Normally you want an independent PPI. However, if there are few miles on it may be OK. A year ago I bought a 2010 911 with 3K miles and had the dealer do a PPI. Not ideal but I figured 1) its a Porsche and 2) had few miles. As simple as this may sound...do a carfax too. Probably wont tell you much but worth the $30. Regardless, at least find out who the previous owner was.... good luck - stick to what you want.... there are plenty out there.
Hi Nazy - I'm a big Porsche guy as well. Great DD.
On used car prices keep in mind that the amount of flexibility you have depends on what the dealer paid for it (unlike new prices which are pretty standard). It's been my experience that most dealers expect about a 20% margin between what they had to pay for it and what they advertise it for. So I would say if you can knock 10% off its a decent deal....and that is not insignificant on a $200-$250k car. You can do a ton of work and research (which I have in the past) and know exactly what you should pay...but then it still boils down to how much the dealer had to pay for the car (typically on trade). Now, for the hard part.....try your best not to fall in love with any single car, which I know may be hard, but trust me, there are TONS of them out there so if this one does not feel right, walk away. Good luck and keep us posted. NOTHING better than getting your first true exotic!!!
