    @Areli1 Hey man! Is the car still available? If so, I'd be interested pending a PPI. Would you be willing to take it to Chris German Auto? I've already spoken to him, let me know. Thanks.

  • buckshot111 1 monthago

    The 2000-2004 Turbo's have had an issue with coolant pipes coming loose and having catastrophic results. There was no mention of the coolant pipes in the PPI. Have they been welded or pinned to prevent this problem?

  • danesta 1 monthago

    @Areli1 if the car is still available and you are willing to take it to a PPI I would be willing to make an offer pending results. Not sure if you can DM me to exchange contact information.

    @twa8000 @danesta Sorry no photos on hand. No body rust all though, some screws and bolt heads have surface rust which is always the first parts to get it. Other than that pretty nice condition for being on the east coast for a portion of it's life.

    Do you have photos under the car? Any rust issues?

    @57nate No history of coolant lines being pinned, also no history on Clutch or RMS but no leaks coming from RMS were seen when I had it on a lift. CV joints seem fine and in tact, and No leaks to speak of. Shifts just fine as well, No PPI has been done outside of my own in house inspection.

  • 57nate 1 month, 1 weekago

    Have the coolant lines been pinned? Have the clutch and RMS been replaced? Does this car have the 2nd gear popout? Has a PPI been performed? Any leaks from the differentials? Are the cv joints torn?

  • Areli1 (seller) 1 month, 1 weekago

    @70gt500 It does come up and down on the freeway but the driver side cylinder looks to be leaking. Also throwing the error code on the dash which clears with each new start up.

  • 70gt500 1 month, 1 weekago

    Are there any issues with the rear spoiler hydraulics? Leaks, actuates properly....?

  • Areli1 (seller) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    @Landscraper to be honest I'm not sure why the gap is bigger on one side. But I can remove the headlamp and take a look down behind the bumper cover to make sure something wasn't over looked during the front end repair. If needed I can have one of my repair guys remove the bumper cover to get a closer look. I'll keep you posted if that is OK.

  • Landscraper 1 month, 2 weeksago

    Gap on the passenger headlight/bumper looks off. This appears to be the area involved in the previous accident. Have you attempted to correct this or had a specialist take a look?

  • Areli1 (seller) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    Hello everyone, thank you very much for taking a look at this 911! If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask them. I will be checking in regularly to make sure any questions are answered.
