Has the IMS Solution been done? Has it been checked for bore scoring?


$34k is on the high side for this, since it has the small IMS bearing and is a base. The confirmation of those repairs will help support that price (but still high IMO).

GLWS.

edit: ran the vin and it is indeed an S. Funny that it's also listed as a BASE.

Yes indeed an S.

To my knowledge the IMS bearing has not been replaced. It's one of those topics where you can get into a long debate with people such as with BMWs and rod bearings.

Price is OBO - We've had interest on the vehicle. Thank you

I'm sure you have, and I'm quite sure they asked about those 2 things plus an overrev report.

The IMS on the early 997.1s is not controversial in the least. While the failure rate is thought to be relatively low (realistically around 6%), failure of the IMS is catastrophic to the engine and is a $20k+ fix. The $2500 or so to retrofit the IMS is well worth the insurance. The discussion comes with bore scoring and if it should be part of a PPI.

Not trying to crap on your thread, but these are very common questions for this particular car and may not be known to the BMW community here. I personally own a 997.1 and know what great cars they can be.

Yes people who are interested in these vehicles do their homework and due diligence. I believe I have represented the vehicle very well. If you are not interested in the vehicle, then there is really no need to clutter up the for sale thread. Thank you

Very nice looking car. I was under the impression that IMS retrofits weren't available for 997.1s without tearing apart the motor.

Just requires removal of the trans/clutch. When it fails is when the case must be split.

Interesting, was under the impression that 997.1s had no way of fixing the ims w/o tearing apart the engine, unlike the 996s.
