  1. Neto: congrats on a real beauty! The yellow is my favorite color, the guards red 2. choise. Ended up with the latter, but envy you just a little bit ;)

    The IMS for 98 and 99 models are indeed double row, and according to official Porsche figures have a failure rate of "far less than 1%", whereas single rows (00-05) have 4-8%, if memory serves me. Upgrading it when its clutch time seems sensible, as mentioned above.

    Kind Regards

  2. 997 shifter (and a GT3 option) http://www.suncoastparts.com/product/997SCU.html

    Have read a few lengthy discussions on a big P forum on the BW shifter v the Porsche Factory kit (http://www.suncoastparts.com/product/997SCU.html), consensus were that the latter was to be recommended. A few quid extra yes, but have bought it none the less.

    No feed back as of yet, will install post Xmas :)

    Kind Regards

  3. Official Porsche numbers for failed IMS, as quoted in the Harris papers found at the US IMS Settlement:

    Double row IMS (aka 1998/99, and post 2005 models) "far less than 1%".

    Single row IMS between 4 and 10%.

    Far less than 1% may well be in the 1/200-1/400 area, or less.

    These numbers should be taken in consideration before you panic. Id say, If you own a 1999 car, wait for the clutch. A 2003 car: Just do it.

    Kind Regards

  4. I have a 99 as well, with 43k. I did the retrofit myself with the LN. One thing I will say is the early 996 cars from what I've read are LESS inclined to fail. Most are single row, mine was. Before I ordered the new bearing I found the engine number on the case ans spoke with them about if I had a single or double row. I was told to pull the tranny first and look at the depth of the cover as an. Indicator as to if it was single or double row.

    I was under the impression that *all* 1999 cars was double row IMS, that 2000 was a mix, and 2001-2005 cars had single row IMS. Indeed that should be the reason why the early cars have far less failures on this matter. The bore score issue also favours early cars for quite other reasons :)

    Kind Regards
