Issues to Look For

Car Purchase

Model: C4S, Year:2003, Mileage:17300, Type of use:Street use only
I have a friend in the Chicago area looking for his first Porsche. He originally was seeking a 1999 to 2004 996. Another 996 owner referred him to a trusted independent Porsche mechanic. The mechanic told him to stay away from 1999 to 2001 - try to find a good 2002 to 2004. That brings me to my question, is there a track record on these years with known issues to avoid. Do you have any recommendation for a specific year range to look for? The buyer is an enthusiast and while the car will be primarily street driven, I know he will delve into DE days etc. The details below are for my car - not relevant to the question.Thanks!
