I took the same 100k miles pic in my 2004 986S. Sadly, 6 months later my IMS failed. Tell me you haven't bought into the "if it's good at 30k it will be good for 230k" myth.

Anyone in DC are with a scan tool

Who is willing to reset my airbag light on a 2003 996S? I believe an Autel can do this as can a durametric. i do understand that this could be a problem with an enthusiast version of the durametric.
