    cargas, pero tienen felicidad, amor y dicha. Sonríen cuando quieren gritar. Cantan cuando quieren llorar. . LLoran cuando están felices y ríen cuando están nerviosas. Luchan por lo que creen. Se enfrentan a la justicia. No aceptan "no" por respuesta cuando ellas creen que hay una solución mejor. Se privan para que su familia pueda tener. Van al médico con una amiga que tiene miedo de ir. Aman incondicionalmente. LLoran cuando sus hijos triunfan y se alegran cuando sus amistades consiguen premios. Son felices cuando escuchan de un nacimiento o de una boda. Su corazón se rompe cuando muere una amiga. Sufren con la pérdida de un ser querido, sin embargo son fuertes cuando piensan

    My thought is if you don't experience IMS failure by 60K miles, it probably ain't gonna happen. However, there is no warning and I can happen at any time. If you are really concerned, go for a 987 model (2004 and newer) which doesn't have IMS issues. Think of it this way, you'll spend $3K-6K if you have an IMS failure on a 986. Better safe than sorry - AND THE 987 VERSION IS A MUCH, MUCH BETTER CAR

    Hey Bosco;
    You seem pretty knowledgeable. I'm considering a used Boxster. I'm pretty familiar with the IMS problems and such, but there seem to be a lot of 97-99 Boxsters out there with anywhere from 80K-125K miles that appear to be really good cars from around $8k-$11K. How concerned should I be with the IMS problems on higher mileage cars? Thanks, Pastor T

    Without looking at the vehicle, it's impossible to give you advice based on a personal assessment. Some common wisdom is low mileage cars develop more problems. But that isn't always true.
    So here's what I suggest. Bite the bullet and take the vehicle to a Porsche dealer or a local Porsche mechanic who has all the tools and diagnostic equipment (this ISN'T a guy who claims he works on European cars). It costs about $400, but any major flaws should show up.
    Hope this helps.
