I quite like that advert Smile

Car looks great, too.

However, LN Ceramic IMS would have to go.

I would have listed grey interior as a reason not to buy it as well as the IMS bearing swap.

Nothing wrong with grey. Black feels nicer but a bit claustrophobic. Grey nice and light and airy, but all just opinion and I even like Savannah. I'd draw the line at Boxster red or nephrite mind.


Nice car with nice mileage. Not cable throttle as per proper early car.
I'd want to see paint under wrap though before buying and I'd rather the wheels were properly done but all small fry.

Nice car. Nice colour wrap too.

Why is an LN ceramic IMS bearing an issue?

They aren't a fit and forget solution as originally thought and have been known to fail, hence LN have now stipulated a mileage for them.

There are supposedly risks to pulling the old bearing out, whether you're in the agree or disagree camp on that.

Best course of action is now thought to be, inspect your original bearing and if ok, flip the seal off the side to allow a flow of oil in. Thumb
