IMS warnings

Engine

Model: 997 C2, Year:2005, Mileage:16,000, Type of use:Street use only
I have a 2005 C2 (997) with about 16,000 miles on it that I purchased new. When I do drive it, it usually is where it will get fully warmed up(its garaged) or be for some distance and I try to redline it once or twice when the safe opportunity presents itself. It has been dealer maintained up to now and I have not had any real issues. The build date is March 2005 -so what IMS bearing/seal would it most likely have, and , you (Joel) are always recommending the LN upgrade - is this applicabkle to my car? As I am out of warranty, and aftermarket warranties are in the $2-4k range would I just be better off spending the money on the upgrade? I have a few reputable Porsche shops (north central Jersey)who would most likely do the work. You make me feel like I should drive the car right over there and get it done ASAP-please advise. Thanks
