I am not mechanically minded at all. I just love driving.
I am now actively looking for a 996 as my way into Porsche ownership.
As I understand it there are 2 major problems that can be encountered - IMS bearing failure and bore scoring?
Do these both result in engine rebuilds?
I was thinking about buying an older car - 3.4 engine - and maybe having the bearing upgraded whether it needed it or not.
Any view/advice/direction to useful information on the site?
I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
