  1. It had about 110.000km when I took it to the independent Porsche specialist that eventually repaired the engine. Although I did track the car twice, I assume the damage had already been done when I bought it at about 85.000km, since I had to add oil since I bought it. Of course, I don't know how the car was used/driven by its first owner. But it did get worse during my ownership, the ticking noise wasn't there (or at least I didn't notice it) at the beginning. The oil: before the engine repair: Mobil1 0W40, since the repair (the indy always uses it) Mobil1 5W50. I ALWAYS waited for the oil
  2. I had my nr 6 scored on my 2005 997 earlier this year. The engine made an atypical ticking noise, and consumed about a liter of oil every 1500km. Within spec, but after the repair (new short block and pistons) I never had to add oil. I also noticed more smoke from the left exhaust (right bank). This is how the piston looked:
  3. Make sure to check the tread at the inside of the tires. The outside has less contact with the road due to the camber. The difference is quite noticeable!
