2006-2008 Porsche Cayman S IMS Bearing Issue

Chadds Ford, 

I want to buy a 2009-2012 987 and I'm realizing there are not many available.

However, I see many 2006-2008 available and within my budget.

What kind of checks should be performed on the first Cayman S model to make sure that the car doesn't have the IMS bearing problem?

Are all the first cayman engines affected by this problem?

Should an owner expect to replace the bearings at some point?

How much does it cost to replcace the IMS bearings?

is it a work that only Porsche dealers are supposed to perform?

Thanks a lot in advance.
