That's terrible!
I had the dreaded IMS failure in my 997 four month ago. Blew my engine apart with no warning. I only just got the car back. And a HUGE bill for what is a much written about design defect. Sucks big time. It's the price we pay for expensive toys.
I really feel for you and hope you are back on two wheels shortly with minimum damage for your wallet.

Sorry to hear that Kim.
Especially after all the previous issues you had with the bike.

Of course I remember you. Hello.
That's why it's taken 4 months. And being in Italy its a whole different deal. You've heard the expression 'if you shake hands with an Italian count your fingers afterwards'. It's not an insult to a nation. It's simply how they do every day business. We got Stuttgart involved and a solicitor and split the bill down the middle, after much negotiation. Still not right tho. We now have an engine without the alleged design fault. But I'm planning on getting rid of him. After years and years of owning 911's I've had it with them. Funny thing is. I'm looking at getting a Freelander 2 HSE instead. Fantastic cars. Must be old age creeping in.

1098 is dead.....long live the **8!!

Pick up the newbie in the morning and can't wait to 'run' it in

Could not take the risk of more wasted summer days and the planned events for 2011

So my fairings will be for sale shortly
