I am looking at a pre-owned Cayman S and based on the this forum a knowledgeable poster said be sure to get the CPO report and REV range report. I've sen both but need help with REV range report interpretation.
The dealer stated
"The REV Report is outstanding.* It is the cleanest I have seen.* It shows 72 iterations in the RANGE 1 (7200 – 7500 RPM) range and ZERO occurrences for all other ranges (stages).* Copy of range report and copy of measurement standard attached.* In the measurement standard example, you will see 1897 ignitions in Range 1, 747 in Range 2, etc, etc.* It also illustrates that possible engine damage does not occur until you reach or exceed Range 4.
The Cayman, at 72 Range 1 ignitions, is remarkably good."
Any thoughts about this statement from knowledgeable owners.
If it looks good I will pull the trigger and move from a BMW 530 to a Cayman. My fault should have never done the test drive last month because that is all I think about and I cannot stop smiling!!
Hopefully I will enjoy it more than the prior owner. Due to all the useful information from this website I made the switch from a 530i to a 08 CS CPO. It is a completely different animal and I drove it on Friday from Dallas back to Houston and its new home. Wow!!!! what a ride. My wife and I had the best time.
I spent this afternoon detailing it with Klasse products AIO and SG which I love. It can be tricky but when it's done the end results are worth the extra work.
The only think I notice while detailing is the "hips" and roof felt a little "rough" even after claying, etc. My guess its the paint or construction material?? Not really sure but I would like to know.
