All M96 engines have an IMS regardless of transmission type. It is what drives the timing chains for each camshaft pair.

I'm pretty sure he was asking whether IMS failures occur on tiptronic equiped cars - not just manual transmission cars.

Years ago there was a theory manual transmission cars were more prone to leaks because of the additional weight of the flywheel and clutch on the end of the crankshaft. I have been talking to Porsche mechanics for 10 years, and tips can leak just like the manual transmission cars. It is just that there are fewer tips so you don't hear as many complaints.

Seems like a stretch to me.

The theory would have to be that the additional weight allowed the crankshaft to be ever so closer to the IMS that it allowed the IMS to have some more "wiggle" room.

but that would mean the chain tensioners were also not working properly.
