Yes- it was a good decision for me to purchase this happened to my 06 C26 at 79K. What kind of oil do you run? I will be running motul Xcess once 200 miles comes around.

What did the premium be for Fidelity, 4k 5k? something?

I use motul 5w-50.

Default NO SIGN OF BORE SCORING

No sign of Bore Scoring ... Just check my 2006 977.1 for sign of bore scoring with 61000 miles . Purchase used without having a Bore Scoping inspection I didn't know 977 having a issue with bore scoring till i was browsing 997 Forum.. Car was driven So California warm climate . Only issue was if i didn't drive for few weeks or sometimes more than month it will make lifter noise when i start up and eventually it will go away once it get little warm. This is normal for car sitting in the Garage for long time of period .
No sign of tailpipe more sooty than the other , oil consumption used 3/4 quarts around 3000 miles of driving .
