The CARFAX highlights nine service history records dating back as far as 2003, and the seller notes that in 2019 a new clutch was installed along with an upgraded IMS bearing.

This sale will be accompanied by the original owner's manuals, toolkit, spare tire, service records, and a clean title. This 6-speed 996 is ready to be enjoyed, do not miss out on this fantastic opportunity.

    Pretty strong money for a repainted and higher mileage 996. PCarMarket should have done a better job of having the owner provide photos of the underside of the vehicle, service history documentation, correct mileage, and correct VIN. Too many red flags for me to bid with confidence. Congrats to the seller and new owner, cheers!
