Spent a lot of time on the road last week driving around the country.

Up nice and early Friday morning; picked my P&J up from the car park bang on 6am in Manchester city center and left to drive to Slough; as i got to the edge of the city she tripped through the 100,000 miles mark.

Love driving her - always puts a smile on my face.

One day she'll need a rebuild; when she does might also get a super charger strapped to her to make things a little more interesting. Who knows...

For now I know just love what she does and how she does it Thumb

I just clocked on 116k miles after a trip around the Jurassic Coast to keep the misses happy, from 113k miles when bought in August. I think the sterling pounds depreciation matches the miles added over 100k unfortunately..

Ok... for the purist answer, it got to 168k before the rebuild, but the main bearings were on their last legs so would have been better rebuilt earlier (hence I suspect the main reason the previous owner was selling). 150k does seem to be the typical milestone for rebuilds. I definitely believe 996s prefer to do ~10k a year daily use than just weekend service in nice weather - that said with a 200k+ car pretty much every single thing starts to need to be viewed as a "service item" of some kind (buggered if I ever intend to sell the car/move on though!) Very Happy

If it's score free, at that miles and you start to see white metal fragments / copper in the oil filter, I guess just a bearing shells & chains rebuild would be reasonable? I say 'reasonable'..

Morning guys

yes, I'm really, really pleased with my P&J and wonder swap her for anything. I was chatting to Mrs Osh at the weekend and saying that, at some point in the future, the engine will need to be rebuilt and - when it comes to the time, i'll probably have it bored out, new headers and stainless steel down pipes, 100 or 200 cell cats and a super charger slapped on. As a typical girl Mrs Osh simply couldn't understand why....

Been reading other threads about engine rebuilds/upgrades and its something i'm looking forward to doing - it will probably be 2-3 years away from now though as the old girl is ticking along just fine. Thumb

It's great to hear about all these high milers.. with Porsche, it's almost a badge of honour, rather than embarrassment, which says lots about the cars. Particularly driving a 996, which is meant to have a chocolate engine.. when I start mine effortlessly in subzero temperatures after a week sat on the drive, it doesn't feel chocolate to me!

Definitely therapeutic to commit to keeping the 996 through thick and thin and use it day-in day-out. Makes it slightly less unbearable when things go pop/smoke/tap/bag of spanners.. (maybe!?)

I would need to be very, very careful indeed about how to frame such an idea to Mrs B... Careless talk costs lives!

I agree though, its actually quite exciting for when the time comes. On top of the required work, I'm thinking an increase in capacity to 3.8L, everything balanced and polished, maybe lighter weight internals, stainless headers, to put the S in 4S...

Rob there is method in my madness though m8.

As far as I'm concerned i've already put a marker down here; i've informed her that this *will* need doing and i've even lobbed in the hand grenade of cost as I told her it will cost *around ten grand* for such a project.

Now, I can either bring said project in under-budget and look like a right clever clogs, or it can come in over budget and i can claim unforeseen aspects that pushed the price up greater than i thought.... Grin

But she cannot, at all, say that I haven't forewarned her or given her a sketch out of the expected pricing...

I like your thinking.

My plan would be to go and look at possible new cars with a change figure in excess of £25k.

Then suddenly come up with the inspired notion that I could get a rebuild done for much less, to keep the faithful car going. Added to the fact the car is a gilt edged investment opportunity (not my words, see any dealer 4S ad in Autotrader!) and its virtually paying for itself!

The Wife Flowers

Anyway, hopefully it will keep going a while longer...

My bird won't let me chop mine in for a newer/better model. She says I can only get another one if I keep the 996.

Bought time I chopped her in for something newer/better nooo

It'll cost you more than a new engine if that happens...

Or maybe you could send her off to Hartech..
