The thing is there is no rhyme or reason with engine failures
like mash potato has highlighted, that one has done 300k with minimal work..
Yet there are incidence of engines totally crapping out at 30k and going bang to the tune of £10,000 ..
its roulette ... and I guess it depends on how you see ownership of the car..
I had 3x 911's and the paranoia of failure and the money involved for repair always got to me..
That may say more about me than the cars,but I can't live with it..
Maybe if the car was superb and worth massive money then a £10k rebuild would be acceptable, but a 996, boxy or Cayman of that generation is neither
