    Default Pre Purchase Inspection

    I'm in the process of identifying and hopefully shortlisting a couple of cars quite soon. The next step is to have a thorough PPI carried out and I've found a few companies below that offer the service. Just wanted to check what experience you may have had, as well as any others to consider.

    AV Engineering
    Simon Furlonger
    Shiltech Performance
    Kent High Performance (The Ferrari Centre)

    Thanks.

    Adding Walker Sports to the list but the majority of the cars i'm considering are in the South so Walker/Shiltech may not be viable, but wanted to add them here in case they were overwhelmingly preferred (getting the car to them may be an issue though).

    I know Tim Walker used to travel quite extensively to do PPIs. As far as Kent and Scotland.
    Not sure what his appetite is now though as haven't spoke to him for a couple of years.

    He is certainly highly recommended by all on here

    Default Pre Purchase Inspection

    What car are you looking at? That may help as there are some exceptional specialists for different models.

    Edit: saw your other post. 360 or 430..... AV or Tim.
    Plus Iíd buy off both of these without an independent PPI (in fact I already did off Tim)

    Good point! Iíve narrowed it down to an F430 F1. Looking at either a coupe or spider (not confirmed yet, although thereís a Cali T Iím tempted to view as itís not far from the Grigio Coupe).
    Iíve heard good things about all those listed. Iíve spoken to a couple but not to Tim yet so Iíll touch base with him next week.
