Red face Happy (but poorer!) Camper!

Just got my 2000S back from my mechanic with new dual row ceramic IMS bearing (replaced the stock dual row) and new clutch. Metallic shavings were found in the oil filter prompting the work. Pan was inspected and thankfully no debris found. It turns out the clutch would have needed replacement within a few thousand mikes anyway! Engine is quieter and clutch has less effort. Car drives great plus piece of mind restored! But youch the bill was painful!

Will do IMS at clutch job, before spring. Seems like good piece of mind.
