  1. Hi Loren, 99 986 CDR220 SN X50204046, type 4462, 48/96 Thank you
  2. Thanks-01 had the weak IMS bearings correct? Even the S model?
  3. He was convinced and claimed he had 4 other buyers. I said good luck, especially with the hood damage. Looking at a 2001 S with 66K - good service records by Porsched dealers. 12K - any risks with the 01? I'm sure the single row IMS bearing is a concern Thanks!
  4. Dealer refused to move off 11K. Thanks but no thanks.
  5. Thanks for the reply! Yes I am aware of the IMS bearing-I had him pull the oil filter and he cut it in half-he said no evidence of metal, listened with the stethoscope. The inspector is Porsche Master mechanic with 12 years of dealer experience and was very knowledgable. Top works perfect, there is a small crease in the front edge of the hood. I turn wrench on my Audi and BMW but I understand the valve covers are a PITA. Thanks!
  6. Hi all, new to the forum and to Porsche. Have spent a lot of time looking at all the maintenance items and potential issues so feel well informed. I am looking at a 99 with 42K miles. Had a PPI today and the findings were: Both valve covers are leaking but not bad enough to do right now Oil filler tube seal leaking Left window regulator needs replacing Needs new fuel cap Visor mirror broken Tires are worn out. The lot is asking 10,995, blur book is about $10,200. Given the repairs is $8500 a fair offer? Thanks for the input
