  1. He was asking $14k but has decided to fix it himself and resell it. Might be convinced otherwise. Also has a coolant leak. I sourced a mechanic who had seen the car and he said even at $14k stay away from it from what he'd seen.
  2. Another noobish question, just looking for input and advice- The 2002 is claimed to have a broken air-oil separator and back registration/minor issues that the owner simply can no longer afford. Obviously I'm concerned that there is something bigger hiding behind the AOS, and wanted to know if a PPI will turn out any other issues? Will a shop be able to perform a suitable PPI on a car with a broken AOS? Thanks so much
  3. Haha I'll say! I'm looking at an '02 Carrera 4 cab with a blown air oil separator this week, hope to have it PPI'd and purchased in the same day (it's in LA and I'm in San Francisco) if all checks out. Approximately 70,000 miles but in good condition with a clean carfax and service records. Supposedly. Pretty excited!
  4. Thanks guys.... I did decide to pass. Looking at a 2002 now with a blown air oil separator... hopefully things will work better with this one!
  5. Wow.... yeah, that's 100 times more helpful than anything I've gotten! I'll give that dealership a call and see if I can flatter them. Thanks!
  6. I tried that.... My local dealer tried and was unable to pull up anything other than the sale specs. Another dealer said they could only find service details if the service was performed at their dealership. The dealership I believe the engine was from said they couldn't release any information about the car due to privacy laws.
  7. From their words it is a factory replacement engine. I don't know if this is true, but I do know that the housing is not coated in whatever the grey factory coating is, rather it is a shinier metal. From what I have read on this, the shiny metal indicates that it is indeed a replacement engine. I forgot that the indicators don't work (they stay stuck on) but am fairly confident I could fix that. Tires are in good condition, but nothing fancy. Nexens I believe. I didn't notice any smoke when starting the car and it pulled nicely (but what would I know?!) but I was not able to test if
  8. It is a C2 with almost no options, black interior, 6 spd manual.
  9. Hi all, Been looking around here and found some great information, thanks for all you all do. I am looking at getting into a 1999 996 with 89,XXX miles. It is not in great cosmetic shape and anyone who has looked at it has passed on it so far. The current owner is selling for a friend (whose girlfriend drove/maintained it, apparently, supposedly) and does not know much about the car, so I have had to scrounge around placing calls to many different shops/dealers for information. What I know: Car had 85k service: clutch, plugs, oil, air filter, pollen filter, brakes. I need to dig
