I need to research that, wasn't aware of the options.

Sorry I meant for bearing choices, our own pelican has a option that is priced well...
Oh, gotcha.

10 years or 120km miles? That means I would have to get a 2004 model in order to be covered for that.

And fyi - 99 through mid 2001 had double row ims bearing. Porsche changes to a single row mid 01 and later. Some think the double row has a lower incidence of failure - including the very well respected shop I use in Dallas.

As the owner of a 2002 C4S, I find the styling to be as appealing as any other 911 series. They all have their own personalities, you don't want a car to look exactly the same for 50 years! I have owned (admittedly many years ago) an older air cooled 911, 1972 vintage so I have that experience also.

It is nice to have some of the more modern amenities of the 996 (or 997). I still maintain my 40+ year old Stingray for that nostalgic Sunday drive, but would never want to drive it day in and day out, and likely wouldn't want to do it in an older 911 either.

In my neighborhood there are four 911's, my C4S, one 997.1, a 997 GTS and a late 60's 911. They all look great and we all enjoy them. The 996 to me has a nice blend of performance, comfort and value that few other cars will give you for the price point. And I never grow tired of looking back over my shoulder at the C4S when I walk away. Just deal with the IMS as others have said and it is a remarkably reliable car.
