Thoughts on 2 Boxsters

My search for Boxsters has brought me two new options.

Both are roughly same price and options, both are triple black and both are in great shape

1st is a 2003 with 56k miles. Decent set of records, regular service etc

2nd is a 2004 with 40k miles, full set of records from local Porsche dealer, looks like it had a engine replacement in 2008. Therefore might have the M97 IMS bearing.

If I purchase the '03, I would do the IMS bearing and probably water pump, for the '04, would probably just pull the seal from the M97 bearing as recommended by Callas and possibly new waterpump if it has been a while.

Thoughts on which would be the preferred long term IMS option
