Considering Purchase of a '95 993

Car Purchase

Model: 993 Cpe, Year:1995, Mileage:78,028, Type of use:Street use only
I just joined PCA Quest to search for cars in the Mart and read Tech Q&A. Great Site! I've been reading everything I can find on the 993 and 996 (also looking at 1999 to 2003 ). I previously had a 1979 911 SC and admittedly like the more classic look of the 993. Notice the 993's are fetching more money than early 996's even with higher miles . . . make sense? Anyway, I'm down to one 1995 993 with the following description . . . " Must see 993 Carrera Coupe. Polar Silver exterior, Twin-Turbo tail with custom install 3rd brake light. 3.6 liter, 282 HP engine, 6-speed manual transmission. Black leather interior. Looks & runs great! 18" Kinesis K28 3-piece modular wheels with custom match car color option, new rear tires. Fabspeed MAXFLO mufflers with Deluxe Tips exhaust system, K&N cone air intake system with chrome breather filters, Eibach springs, Steering rack support brace, Alpine Receiver & 5-CD remote changer, JL Audio 250/1 Power Amplifier for sub-woofer. Rennline Aluminum Pedal kit. Always garaged & I always used car cover inside & outside. Well maintained & serviced by Black Forest Porsche. Recent A/C recharge. All current & previous owner maintenance receipts." I admittedly am not familair with some of the mods as I've been absent from the Porsche world for 23 years. Do any of the mods help in terms of the suspension issues with the 1995? What about the air intake mod? Owner is PCA and tells me the clutch has not been replaced yet. Just had it serviced and the mechanic at Black Forest (San Diego) said it doesn't need it yet. Owner is willing to knock off $3000 knowing it is inevitable. How much for a clutch job? Have not asked him about the Valve Guides but will be my next question. Any feedback or recommendations would be much appreciated. This car is remote from me (Utah) so will fly to see and drive along with some CA 996's. Looking forward to getting back into the Porsche family and becoming an active PCA member!Thanks!Matt
