1) I think slightly, yes.

2) towards the rear i believe

3) RMS is caused by a manufacting defect when the engine was put together, if you have it, there is nothing you can do, i.e driving slow will not help

4)I would get service from OPC anyway for the stamps and they may treat you better if you have a service relationship with them. You will have to check your 3rd party warranty to see if RMS is covered.

5) If your dealer uses Porsche parts you can get a 111 pt check and then get a warranty if everything is in order, or if they put right what they find wrong.

Jeff, if i was you i would part with the cash, get the OPC warrant NOW. There is plenty of eveidence that 3rd party warranties are no good when the ***** really hits the fan. RMS is considered by many as a wear and tear issue as it is just a seal, but the Porsche warranty covers this specifcally. On a 03 C4S, i'd get the 111 pt check and get the Porsche warranty.All IMHO.

answers :-

1) yes

2) under the engine, basically, if its leaving drops of oil on the driveway a) you would see it and b) you should be able to see a wet patch of oil on the engine.

3) not that I've heard of, it seems to occur randomly regardless of mileage, altho Autofarm say they offer a permanent fix but haven't spoken to anyone who's used this yet.

4) as long as the dealer is a Porsche specialist, you should be fine. altho Full Porsche service history would be preferable from a prospective purchasers point of view.



5) nope, the OPC will need to do a 111 point check 200 if its all clear then they charge 725 for a years warranty.

6) oh ok, there's not a 6. ;-)



I'm in the same mind as you, keep an eye on the oil leeks and enjoy! the cracking of the liners can't be diagnosed untill it happens, so if it happens it happens, if it doesn't then it doesn't.

The best advice is as ever

allways get a 111 point check

and keep the warranty on a water cooled car for as long as possible

Although if you search around you will find more & more posts talking about how Porsche are now not paying for a lot of warranty work!

It has got to the point here I am now looking at getting something other than a Porsche for my next car.

I've had my call from West London OPC and the final bill for my service is what it should be. I know of at least 2 pieces of work they were going to carry out under warranty without me having to kick up any fuss and will find out what an investigation i authorised has discovered. Whatever it was has obviously been covered under warranty as well.

I'll post more details later when i get them, but from my perspective the warranty has been honoured satisfactorily.

F1 dragon - its good to hear nice stories after all the bad stuff seems to be carried alot further than the good stuff.



This is an interesting question I'd like to ask you :-

(only applicable if you brought the c4s from the same garage tho)

do you think the good service you are getting is related to :-

a) the purchase of and the value of your car from the garage

or

b) you think this is unrelated.
