The hunt is over, I collect it next weekend. I'll post some photos up later but it's a 2003 Lagoon Green C4S, the colour completely won me over.

I was always told the c4s have the highest ims failures on all the models and to avoid the low mileage cars as they are prone for failure and anything over 129k are less likely to fail if had regular oil changes. Correct me if I’m wrong I’m going back 3 years now


Mine's on 128k fingers crossed....

...personally, having just experienced an ims failure leading to a full engine rebuild that is looking like costing close to £13k I would not entertain buying any 996 or 997 (pre gen 2) that hasn't had a rebuild or similar unless you have a bank account capable of sustaining such a financial impact should the worst happen!?

It's a gamble buying one otherwise...

My opinion was that 911 ownership is never going to be cheap and for a lot of owners it’s a heart or head decision.

I’ll of course pray for no major issues but hey it can happen!

ooooohhhh- I like that colour...

Just FYI - the Porsche Dealer parts system sometimes (in my C4S case) suggests C2 suspension parts or Carrera 4 parts even with the full C4S VIN.

Example - The standard C4S has lower suspension than a C2 - I'm still confuses as to what it has as it isn't M030 and it isn't IX73 which is the C4S version of the IX74, but the additional Foam spring on the dampers is the Same P/N as the IX73...The Porsche system offers the C2...

Regardless - if you are ordering Porsche parts from Porsche, get them to triple check if their Parts catalogue is telling them the truth.

hope this helps

Having done a few hundred miles in it, I can throughly say I'm loving every moment.

First job is to replace a faulty drivers side electric switch assembly, thankfully German eBay came to the rescue with a brand new part for under £80. A bit better than the £400+ from Porsche!

Another quick photo from Goodwood:



Other than the switch I am just putting together all the service history and getting an idea of what will need replacing next. I'd also like to change the Dansk exhaust tips to the turbo style at some point.

Thanks! Out of interest does anyone know how many C4s were built in Lagoon Green?

Nobody will be able to tell you that but rest assured the answer will be very, very few.

I've seen hundreds of 996C4Ss but yours is the only one in LG.

X73 isn’t the just the c4s version of X74, X73 was available for all wide body and X73 all narrow body. Standard c4s suspension is the same as the standard turbo set up with different spring and damper rates to account for the difference in weight. I have X73 on my c4s and it’s very low! And as I found out last year some X73 bits are the same as 997 turbo, but half the price!
