Bike in for big service so that is going to hurt but got the call from hell informing me that the clutch shaft bearing has disintegrated and bits of metal everywhere so need strip down and new bottom end stuff!!
Can't bl**dy believe it There goes my slipper clutch then!!
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.
Ouch, that really sucks Are you really going to have to bear the full cost yourself?

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.
