Remarks

Engine functions exactly as it should. Being the earlier model 996 / 911 it does not suffer from IMS bearing issues unlike the mk11 996 which suffers from a 4% IMS bearing failure rate, New clutch at 80,000 miles when IMS bearing / engine was also checked.. recently serviced (full service history) wants for nothing
