PPI picked up a transmission whilstle

Hello Pelican Parts forum!

After a break of some 17 years I'm getting back into Porsche ownership.

So i'm having a PPI done on a 1999 996 Tip. They picked up a transmission whistling sound. It went to a transmissions specialist and they said maybe it's worn bushes and the pump.

Thats all I know right now - waiting for full written report.

Now the it's all good - the owner is happy to rectify before sale. He is evaluating choices of repairing the current transmission or fitting a refurb unit. The other option I have is negotiating a lower price based on the quotes for repair. The transmission specialist indicated it's not in immediate danger of failing, but might leak oil after a while.

But just curious - anyone else dealt with a similar thing? Experiences? Advice?

Porsche 911 Carrera - 1999 996 3.4l C2 Tiptronic

Nicely optioned by the original owner:
Silver, full black leather interior, sunroof, traction control, GT3 wheels. Mostly almost all original.
