sounds good, i had read about the sudden stop recommendation before.

As for my car its on 80k and a daily run to work 24 miles each way (40mph average cameras all the way) but previously it was in Surrey and used as a weekend joy however it had been Sorn for about 6 months when i bought it.

I think you're right a nice decent run out is in order for sure.

Oil i top up here and there with 0w-40.

To be honest when i was looking i was more frightened by what i read about IMS bearing over the BS, whats thoughts on that ?

Sounds to me a good blast is defo in order! Sitting around for that long could contribute to it I guess.

Demort might have a view, 0w oil probs isn't helping either, seals will be worn at 80k. I would definitely thicken up your oil, Baz recommends 10w for cars pushing 50k.

I thought IMS wasn't an issue on the 987 era?

10w 50 i will source then Thumb

Do you know what dealer uses as first thing i did was a major from the dealer as it has full Porsche Service History.

My understanding was IMS was issue more so on Gen 1 3.4s and rectified after 2007 but not sure !!

Hmmmm, OPC uses the spec Mobil One 0w 40. Shame to drain new oil but I’d lean towards upping that.

Opie Oils are your friend for Millers.

Yearly oil changes are well worth it too, most on here drop the oil at least once a year. 2 year oil servicing is mental.

Check out the first page of my ownership thread, IMS isn’t even on my radar.

OPC use 0w / 40 oil on these so if its good enough for them ..

Indys tend to use 5w/ 40 oil .. not a huge difference .

I would say run with the oil you have then switch to 5/40 .. waiste of good oil otherwise .. and you can always change it after a year as opposed to the 2 year normal service .

Ims had a larger bearing fitted from 2006 so yours probably has this and whilst these are not bullet proff there have been very few cases of these failing .

The IMS though .. its rare these days .. its possible but very unlikely ... if you are the kind of person thats going to worry about this everytime you drive the car ( i know several customers like this ) then i would say replace it just for peace of mind .. personnelly i dont see the need but some people do worry and this is the best way forward if you do .

It’s a yes from me! Like the way they make the ducts look bigger, like a 996T for example.

What’s going on in the middle there, got some mesh in there?!

You manage to hoover/blow all the crap out?

defo looks better, whats the recommended cleaning tips as i dont want to use anything that de-colours or fades the plastic?

Sorry the zip tie was a bodge job will put more subtle one in soon.

I don't have a mesh in the middle, i think its just the crap photography by me

Think he mentions it on his webby. I just use my regular Meguiars Gold Class shampoo.

Looking again, I see it’s not mesh, you have a third rad which is unusual! My middle bit is blanked off.
