My '06 C2S is doing well (knock on wood) at nearly 185K on the clock.
Amazing. Excited when you roll 200k. We need to have a forum celebration.

All I can do is drive it and keep up the maintenance...the rest is up to Hephaestus

I'm excited to go, especially after the 101 class last week. That was a great experience by itself.

I don't wanna be the King...too many responsibilities
I think I read on the 996 forum about a guy with 229K, but its a 996.

Default 2011 997.2 C2 PDK

This is my daily driver in Detroit, MI. I bought her 2.5 years ago with 38k miles and I just rolled 100k last week!

Iíve spent about $9k on normal maintenance over that time. 2-3 sets of tires, 2 sets of brakes, 2 sets of plugs, 6 oil changes and a belt. I just encountered my first issue outside of the regular maintenance. My passenger mirror stopped working and is clicking continuously when I unlock the car. Iím thinking itís just the motor, an easy, inexpensive fix. Anyone else with the same or similar mirror issue?

Default My 2009 C2 S Cab PDK with 107,000 on clock



Just bought it in Oregon and drove down to Colorado. Had most service records . On the PPI could not verify the drive belt replace or plugs or PDK clutch oil . But might have been done . Not all Indy's will show all the maintenance. I went ahead and did those to be safer driving home . What a machine just wow!!!

I know the tires are expensive but $9k for regular maintenance seems high for 2.5 years.

Not really. Thatís over 60,000 miles of driving. Tires and balancing are $1,100 x 3. Plugs $500 x 2. $100 for oil changes x 6. Brakes $1,000 x 2, more if rotors are needed. Belt - unknown. But that adds up to $7k, and could easily be another $2k for labor/parts. These arenít Hondaís. They cost money to keep on the road. Especially as a DD in Detroit.

I don't know how many here follow Hoovies Garage but Tyler Hoover had 248,000 miles on his 996 when it succumbed to oil starvation on the track.

​​​​​​This must be unfathomable to all the Rennlisters that can't sleep at night thinking their engine might die the next time they turn the key.
