I'm hairs away from purchasing an 02 C4s with 113.8k on the clock, no real history on it. Drove it and felt nothing unusual or strange. I'm looking forward to the adventure.

My 2004 Targa just turned 100K miles this week!  She's still running like a bat out of hell, too!

FWIW, the previous owner replaced the RMS, but the IMS has never been changed.  I plan to have it done whenever I get the clutch replaced, but so far I've been keeping my RPMs up and changing my oil regularly with no issues.


My clutch was last replaced by the previous owner at around 50K miles, so I'll probably be due for a new one before long.  I'm going to ask the shop to hang onto the old IMS bearing for me so I can check it for wear.  I'll share my findings.

103,000 on my 2000 Carrera 4. Had 73,000 when I bought it 10 years ago. Is a daily driver - but since my retirement it only gets out once a week or so. More so in the summer when PNWR - Seattle has more tours. She has been to 3 Parades and will be going the the Palm Springs Parade in June. Hope to see lots of 996'ers there.

111,000 miles so far. I’ve put 6,000 on so far this year. Discovered the AOS needs to be replaced day before yesterday. Looking forward to the tinkering opportunity!

Nice stance.  How thick are the rear spacers?
