It is the intention that the scheme is self-financing with all the income generated paying for all the costs (and a separate account is used for this purpose). If - in the fullness of time - it turns out that the costs are not being met, Hartech reserve the right to increase the scale charges for new applicants accordingly. However Hartech undertake not to increase the costs for those already on the scheme by more often than once per year, or by more than either inflation, interest rates or the cost of living index -whichever is the greater.

In this way we hope to remove the fear of a sudden large repair cost from spoiling the otherwise considerable pleasure of owning a Hartech Porsche - even over many years or high mileage's - by providing small regular affordable payments. Customers considering cash payment options instead of using their company cars will benefit from this ability to budget purchase and maintenance costs closely to run a Porsche instead.

For non-Hartech cars. As soon as this Plan was announced for buyers of "Hartech Cars", there was a demand for a similar service for cars purchased elsewhere but looked after by Hartech. We considered this carefully because our records showed that on average they were much more expensive to run, over several years, (even if we took out the initial renovation costs) than the cars we originally sourced and sold ourselves. Despite this we have now introduced a similar plan for non-Hartech cars that has been worked out by the same criteria as before.

There are some small changes from the scheme for Hartech cars. e.g. We must obviously reserve the right to turn down some poor cars that have been so neglected or damaged that they would be too unreliable to fit within the costings for the Plan. However, those that we find acceptable will go through our "C" service and if the serious faults that we identify, are repaired by us (and both the "C" service and repairs are paid for in full by the owner) the cars are then eligible for the Plan under almost the same terms and conditions as for Hartech cars. The costs however are slightly higher to reflect the higher maintenance costs that non-Hartech cars have incurred -on average.

The newer the car is (and therefore the sooner we get it on our scheme) the less difference there is in the costs. If it is an older car, however, even after going through all our "C" service recommendations etc, we still found in the past that because private customers do not on average choose such good quality cars to start with, they still cost more to repair and maintain. Due to this, there are some differences between the Hartech and non-Hartech schemes.

Although Hartech cars have ALL known faults corrected, for non-Hartech cars, we will allow those faults, which do not adversely affect any other part of the car or have any other reliability implications, to be excluded and not repaired. Items such as leaky water pumps or rusty brake pipes would not be excluded and must be repaired, as they in themselves could have more expensive consequences if left un-addressed. Items such as a noisy rear wiper motor or a sticky passenger electric window could be excluded from the scheme and not be repaired (either before the car is accepted on the scheme or if the fault is discovered during its time on the scheme). However these items could not then be repaired under the scheme later, but only if both the labour and parts were then paid for by the owner.

The HLMP for Hartech cars has been costed out to only cover the costs of the scheme and there is no additional profit element included. This is because we believe that if we have sold a car that subsequently has a problem - that we should not profit from the repair of that problem -consequently our plan for Hartech sales cars, is based on a non-profit generating set of statistics - resulting in it's exceptionally low cost.

These were not too difficult to work out, since we had already carried out all the remedial work before the cars were sold and generally customers for Hartech cars followed all our recommendations throughout - enjoying the exceptional reliability that resulted. So even if we have got the initial charges for the scheme too low - we will accept the resulting slight loss, honouring our agreements fully. This is our way of offering a very generous and valuable, long-term commitment and benefit to those who buy our cars.

However the calculations for the costs of the non-Hartech cars were much more difficult to establish statistically because customers often did not have every fault repaired during their first service, nor all the subsequent ones thereafter. So they not only often bought a car with more faults in the first place, but also suffered the additional financial consequences of not repairing them in good time, as well.

This made interpreting the statistics very difficult indeed and setting the right charges - almost impossible. As a result, the initial charges are unlikely to be as accurately calculated as for Hartech sales cars.

Because of this difficulty in working out the right charges, it may be necessary to alter them after the first year if they are too high or too low. If they are presently too low, increases will have to follow eventually, although those on the scheme will not have any increases levied until they have been on the scheme for a full 12 months.

We hope that there will be no need to increase the charges at all and indeed, if the cars prove to be more reliable than our statistics suggest (which may well be the case), then charges will be reduced accordingly after the first year. However, if the charges prove to be too low and the owners that are on the scheme find the resulting increases too expensive, they can stop the scheme simply by stopping future payments.

Unlike the scheme for Hartech sales cars (for which the maximum possible price increases are limited), Hartech reserve the right to adjust the costs each year by whatever amount proves necessary to cover the costs. Hopefully -they will prove not be too far out (if at all) and have not been adjusted for existing customers since inception.

The MONTHLY costs for the Lifetime Maintenance Plan for NON-Hartech sale cars are presently as follows. (please confirm that these are current at the date of sale. Vat must be added).

Older models, or those not listed, are not presently accepted on this scheme - although they may be considered for a special quotation.
