With 135k km in 7 year means it has been putting roughly 20k every year, similar to your driving. So if I am in your place I will dig deeper in that bunch of receipts and figure out of how expensive will the maintenance be at almost half life of this beauty. Ask yourself a question, if you can live with that maintenance + 30% more as it will get more older and prone to expensive repairs year after year.
I understand that its a buyer market these days, so if you are getting a sweet deal then go for it. If not I wouldn't risk big money on 7 year old sports car.
My mates mum had a 987 back at home and didn't have a lot of trouble with it other than a relay for the roof. Even overheated it and ran the engine out of oil and it was still ok.
You should google IMS bearing failure. I've seen a few people chatting about it on Porsche forums but I have to admit I'm not too clued up on it.
My First Post so be gentle! I have just arrived in the Sunny UAE! (3 months) I have now started looking at cars...I have came across a very clean 2008 987 with 135K on the clock, having looked through the history is complete main dealer then ARM and JZM with big bundle of receipts for work carried out. The Question is what are they like to live with as a daily driver.. commute is only 20-30Km. i haven't experienced the Summer yet so any advice would be welcome...
Thanks I Advance
