For those of you who might not be aware of the IMS problems associated with this model, read this quotation from the current issue of Excellence Magazine 2014-2015 Porsche Buyers Guide:

"ALL PORSCHE M96 AND M97 ENGINES from 1997 through 2008 have the potential for Intermediate Main Shaft (IMS) failure although the risk continues to decline as the cars get older. If you're planning to buy a used Porsche of recent vintage, it's hard to avoid one of these cars and you need to assess the risk associated with this potential problem. ... The cost of a replacement bearing and labor for installation appears to be close to $2000. This is a small investment compared to the rebuild or replacement cost of an engine should you have an IMS failure..."
