Comment: having an inspection at a local specialist in a couple weeks. They have already recommended replacing the IMS at a cost of £1300 plus vat. Very interested in this thread as I am inclined to get it done but still not sure.


Gawd - how on earth can they diagnose the need for a (very overpriced) IMS bearing without inspecting the car?

(Welcome - nice to see you here BTW).


To be fair, I turned up without an appointment and one of the owners came and sat with me for 10 minutes to discuss my needs. I really wanted to book in for an inspection but I asked about IMS and then he gave me the info above. I told him I would discuss IMS with them again after the inspection. I asked about simply inspecting the IMS bearing and removing the seal and he said something about a weakness or problem with the IMS shaft which would only be addressed by an upgrade (all new to me).

I can only assume the work he was discussing was much more than simply replacing the bearing but I will report back when I know more.

How do people get tyres fitted as that's a good price?

The wheels are unmarked and I don't want some chimp scuffing them because I don't want the hassle of repair.

2000 Porsche 996 Carrera 4

Since starting this thread back in March 2015 (nearly 2 years ago) there's not been one reported 996 ims bearing failure as far as I'm aware. On the other hand we have witnessed (correct me if I'm wrong) around 4 failures in 997s within that time period.

Not good for the 997.
