Default PPI From Lambo dealer or third-party

Hello Gang,

I am looking into picking up a 2016 Huracan 610-4 from Rhode Island. Car isn't driven in snow or during winter but that is stated by the owner. I am going to view the car this coming Friday. Car is currently getting its annual service at dealer who states they will look over the car and let me know any issues or they can charge me $450ish to perform a PPI. I am debating on having them do PPI or have it taken to third party? Any suggestions..

Thank you in advance!

Regards

Just make sure you pay for the PPI. Would you be using the same dealer? Should be fine if itís a lambo dealer

Unlikely to be many major issues with a 2016 Huracan (very reliable). But probably best-practice to get it PPIed by an independent third-party. Someone who has no skin in the game with buyer, dealer, servicer, or seller. Pick a Lambo or supercar specialist, not a generalist.

As long as the dealer doing the PPI isn't the same one selling you the H, you should be good to go using the dealer for inspection.

Rust on these cars or any modern car is virtuallly unheard of regardless if driven in snow or not.

My personal opinion, is if that dealer is "looking" at the car, you're fine to have them do a formal PPI, but ensure that you pay for the PPI and get the actual paperwork.

The point of the PPI is not only to ensure that you're not getting a lemon of a vehicle, but also have a reputable shop essentially "put their head on the chopping block." If something was wrong and they didn't catch it, you now have recourse for liability. Whoever you choose to have do the PPI, I would just want to ensure that they are reputable, and have a lasting presence in the community. If Boston Lambo gets it wrong on the PPI, they have the resources and presence to do what it takes (presumably) to make things right.

Whoever you go to, ensure that you get the full paperwork from them with them signing off that the vehicle "passes" all applicable tests. Don't just take someones word for it, get the paperwork!!!!

Good luck!!!
