made in China? $849 buys a lot of shop time. When it comes to the white collar stuff I think I'll let the pros have at it. Not that I'm against DIY. But, there is a point of diminishing returns and risk.
(check out the reviews. A real riot in butchered English)

On a more serious note. JFP, Loren will Porsche lease a PIWIS ii tester to an indy shop? If not how do the Indys deal with this restriction in trade?

Sure, they will lease you the current PIWIS II (with some functions disabled) for an initial lease payment of around $18K for the first year. The older PIWIS I is still running around, but it lacks the capabilities of the II, and Porsche has discontinued supporting it, and have taken steps to disable them remotely.

A lot of independent's use the Durametric Pro system, or a fully decked out Autologic system (used ones pop up on flea bay from time to time for around $12K).

A lot of the so-called PIWIS units coming out of China are actually old Durametric 5 systems (no longer supported by Durametric).
