  1. I'm not a big fan of extended warranty companies so that would not be an option in my case. I found some 2000 911's that blew their engines around 70k and had "new" ones put in at the dealer. I would assume any engines a dealer is putting in would have all the upgraded parts (bearings, RMS etc). I'm not sure if I should target a 2000 with a recent blown engine or just get a 2001 with higher milage they seem to be about equal prices.
  2. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Porsche_996 "The engines in the 1999 and 2000 version have a large failure rate due to a design error. This problem was fixed in mid 2000. One will notice the resale price difference with these model years." I am shopping for a 911 and do not want to replace the engine and can't afford a 02. I just want confirmation that in m/y 2001 the 3.4 issues have been addressed, can't always trust Wikipedia.
