RMS = rear main seal. Costly job to replace, even more so to repair if it all goes bad.

If buying Porsche from between the years the 996 to early 997 (Boxsters and Caymans included), I'm going to stick to Mezger engines aka the ones in 911 Turbos, GT2/3 ect...
Thanks! What he said.

I had a 997.1 base with an rms issue. Less than 5k mi on the car so it was covered.
