My car had over revs via durametric but once at the dealer I asked the tech and he said it looked normal. He did not say anything about my range 4 and 5. I told him I have a durametric tester he smiled.

Any range 5 or especially range 6 readings are a possible red flag to people buying the car..

Anytime that a prospective buyer is thinking of buying a TT or any other Porsche they should have the DME read.. This can avoid buying a car that has been abused of heavily tracked..

Dealers will always tell you the car has been babied and never tracked.. The DME scan will tell the truth..

Hope this helps..
It certainly does help, thank you! I've spent too many hours in this section of the forum over the past few days trying to get smart.

^go and drive all these cars and decide. Drive them as much as you can before you make a commitment. And if you buy a pcar then become and RL "member" and also join PCA. If you go Beemer route then join BMWCCA...don't let the salesman talk you into anything.

Of course, you should buy a 997.1 TT/MT!
