Supposedly, the post 05's didn't crater as often. I had a discussion with the service manager at my local Porsche dealer. He says that in general, IMS don't let go very often if you keep fresh synthetic oil in the crank case and don't over/high rev it regularly. I suspect a spin on oil filter kit and a magnetic drain plug could help too.

Don't trouble, trouble. And treat your Porsche like a fine lady!
