Sorry if this is the wrong forum. My car's CPO expires next October and I am considering selling to go with either a 16 CS or possibly a 15 Carrera (I know they are not the same price range). My first question is about the value of my car. I got the recent low ball offers from a few dealers in my area so a trade-in is not going to work. I know when I was looking for a car getting one with a CPO was very important to me so I'm hoping that a CPO vs a non-CPO car will also make a difference. Sites like KBB.com don't allow you to specify a CPO as part of the selling price. Of course I got the benefit of several years of coverage whereas if I sell my car early next spring then there would only be about 6 months left. Is it safe to assume that 6 months of coverage would be worth an extra $1k or more?

I have all service records for my car which I also think is important. It amazes me that Porsche does not keep a online database of their dealerships work. My 96 ls400 has all of its records still online. How many people think having all service records, etc. helps when buying a car?

Finally, I know a lot of people recommend getting a pre-purchase inspection before buying used. Would it make sense for me to go ahead and get one done that I could share with prospective buyers or would people still want to do their own?

Thanks in advance.

Ok several points
1) No don't do the PPI for the future buyer. He is going to want his own independent inspection not yours. It a little like it's a great car, you don't have to check it out.
2) CPO's are usually $2500 for an extra 2 years coverage. So a $1000 is too much. $500-600 probably.
