IMS education re: 99 Carrera with 42K miles

  • 1999
  • 911 Carrera Cabriolet


I've purchased my first Porsche this week.  It's a beautiful black 911 Cabriolet.  1999 model with 41,700K miles. 

I understand there is a serious issue regarding something called the IMS bearing. 

Would someone please educate me on precisely what the best course of action is that I must take?  I'm purchasing the car in Sarasota FL and will need to drive it to my city of residence 1700 miles away.  Should I do this before the drive or will it be alright to do it when I get it to my residence?
