Save your money. If you do decide you want to change a perfectly good bearing for an unknown one, the best replacement would be a standard off the shelf bearing for around £30 and to have the job done, budget around a few hours labour. Whoever quoted you £1300 + VAT is ripping you off with an inferior product, unless of course they're talking about removing the engine, stripping it and replacing the IMS assembly with the later 997.2 design shaft, in which case would be a bargain.

They told me they would need to remove the engine but I didn't check on the extent of the work. I will ask before I do anything, and this thread has been enormously useful in helping me understand the issue and weigh up the probabilities of failure. The cost of failure is still unclear but if it could be £10k plus I may have the IMS sorted for peace of mind. I will chew it over.

Gawd - how on earth can they diagnose the need for a (very overpriced) IMS bearing without inspecting the car?

(Welcome - nice to see you here BTW).
