    hi guys, how much do you normally pay for a PPI on a ferrari?
    Personally from 2 cars I have done both locally and out of state, it ranges from $300-500, and maybe 800 including engine compression test.
    I was told by a professional that a "right PPI" cost about 2k. Is that right?
    Just wanted to see everyone's experience here to know what's the "norm"...Thanks!
    p.s. tried searching but it says too few keywords

    I paid $350 last year but no compression test.

    I think there is some truth to the 2k in the way that the more comprehensive they look and take their time the better PPI it is. I'd pay 2k if the car I'm buying is over 400k imo

    Quick question, upon competing a PPI, what kind of report do you send? How informational would it be?

    Each report would include the details that correlate to the level of inspection requested.

    For Example if you chose a 1 hour inspection, you would get this information with associated estimates :

    1 HOUR INSPECTION
    INSPECTION TO INCLUDE ESTIMATES FOR THE FOLLOWING ITEMS:
    ACTUAL SERVICE NEEDS
    TREAD DEPTH ACROSS 3 POINTS ON EACH TIRE
    BATTERY AND CHARGING SYSTEM TEST - With printed results
    VISUAL INSPECTION FOR FLUID LEAKS
    CLUTCH READING WHEN AVAILABLE
    3 MILE TEST DRIVE

    Normally, when requested, photo documentation of the following:
    Tire condition
    Severity of fluid leak
    Condition of filters and fluids


    and so on.

    The more in-depth the inspection, the more we can do for you regarding level of documentation and such.
