IMS failure


Model: 997, Year:2008, Mileage:4200, Type of use:Street use only
I've had several porsches throughout my driving career but was not able to afford my heart's desire (a 911 Carrera S) until later in life. I bought a new 2008 Carrera S early 2009. She's a garage queen with only 4200 miles. I change oil annually, but am plagued with thoughts of an impending failure of the IMS bearing. I know another gentleman with a 2008 Carrera S that had to replace his engine after about 20K miles due to IMA failure. Should I sell my Carrera? Thanks. Dr. J.D. Spitler.
