Agreed 💯

Depends on situation, I bought a 997.2 without PPI using judgement. Car had 10k miles one owner, after lengthy conversations sent deposit with sale contingent on my inspection. I arrived and looked around the stable and this car lived its life in a very nice environment, never saw rain and seller even had it serviced before my arrival without requesting this. Full disclosure I have experience with paint finishes and could tell paint was all original. Honest people doing a deal......
