Who said yes?

Also, I'd prefer to see a poll for only 2006-2008 owners. And of course it is super non-scientific sampling blah blah etc.

if you click on the numbers in the poll (currently 5) you can see thier profiles and the cars they drive (and the year if they entered it).

Okay, but none of them have actually posted in this thread, and I don't recall seeing them post about it before. Seems odd, if you were a long-time rennlist poster and your IMS blew wouldn't you post about it?

Hey guys who said "yes" , are you out there? What happened?

Rich-thanks for doing this. I always wanted to see some data around the failure rate. I'll take 94%. It proves how great these cars are.

here's the info on the failures available so far:

2005 997 Carrera S
997 year?
2006 C2S
997 year?
Carrera cab year?

it would be great to hear any detailed info from anyone who's had an IMS failure (year, car, circumstances).

Thanks

05 C2S. 16.1K miles. Always a slight concern but no issues yet.

It was a member called "Charlie C". But I also noticed that he owns an '04 Boxster. I'd like to hear from Charlie to confirm if it was indeed his '06 997 or his '04 Boxster.

There was another member who reported on his Cayman's IMS failure in this poll. While the poll implies 997, the questions asks "IMS failure on your car?" - which some may interpret as any car, as did the Cayman owner.

That 2006 C2S should be stricken from the list. After doing a search, I found that "Charlie C", the owner in the poll who indicated an IMS faliure, was reporting on his '04 Boxster it seems, not his '06 C2S.
