88 930s

I am looking to purchase a 1988 930S where the speedo has been replaced. The replacement was done at an authorized Porsche dealer and the proper steps were taken to disclose this information. The owner explained it up front and the inside of the owners manual was noted with the mileage at the time of replacement and it was stamped by the dealer who did the work. I have two questions. First did the 1987-1989 930s have problems with the speedos that lead Porsche to have a section in the owners manual showing that it was replaced? Secondly, does this hurt the value of the car in anyway here or in the future?

All information will be appreciated!

Should not have any impact on the current or future value as long as everything is documented. My preference would have been to send the speedo out for repair instead of replacement and the issue would be moot.
Of more importance is the car's condition consistent with the documented mileage? The truth is that it's a pretty simple matter (5 minutes?) to plug in a different speedometer with any mileage you want on it. The car's condition and associated paperwork (history) should match up with the miles on the car. Good luck.
