A genuinely rare opportunity to acquire a mechanically perfect 996. This car has been given the attention that most 911’s are missing, assuring the new owner will have many many years of trouble free motoring, including a warranty on both engine and gearbox. 

I originally intended this to be a car for life, and have spared absolutely no expense in fixing all the problems that these cars can have, including a full engine rebuild, with new cylinders and pistons, new improved intermediate shaft, seal and IMS bearing, air oil separator, refurbished starter motor and alternator, idle pulley, lower temperature thermostat etc etc, all new chains and crank shaft bearings (which have recently been shown to be a huge problem in these cars as the mileage creeps up). 
     While the engine was being rebuilt I decided to replace all brake lines, radiators and AC condensers, as well as coolant lines and header tank and various suspension parts including anti roll bar bushes, drop links, ‘coffin’ arms etc. 
  To complete a full renewal of all mechanical parts the automatic gearbox benefitted from a complete overhaul which included changing the clutch pack, to make good as new.
  The car has brand new premium tyres all round, benefits from new brake discs and pads and a Dansk sports exhaust system to replace the original back boxes which were rusting at the seams (again a very common occurrence). It has just been serviced and has passed its NCT test.  The interior of the car is nothing short of immaculate. 996 interiors can wear quite badly but this one is superb. 

  All the above work was carried out at considerable expense, in the expectation that I would own the car for years to come. However, circumstances have recently changed and I have very reluctantly decided to put my pride and joy on the market, knowing that I could certainly never recoup the investment made in this 911’s future. 
All detailed bills invoices and pictures of work done will be made available to the new owner. 
  Those who are familiar with the 996/997 family of 911’s will know that all the above work makes this car a one of a kind, truly reliable, mechanically pristine prospect, and that this maintenance is likely needed on any similar age/mileage 911 that has not been as well looked after.
