Yea, my car having a gen 2 motor is a definite plus. To some, they want all original parts and it's seen as a negative.Mine is already done. I got it back last Thursday.
With regards to these cars, I honestly feel like they need to be driven. Especially folks with the Gen 1 motors. If there is an issue it's hard to tell if the car sits for most of the time and only sees a short amount of street use.
There have been folks have an engine blow with street use and track use. Correct me if I'm wrong but there may be more street use issues then track issues.
I probably had one of the higher mileage R's in the country at 19.2k miles on the gen 1 motor.
My car is an 18 so I'm happy to have gotten the gen 2 motor.
so far I haven’t seen prices dip due to a Gen 2 motor replacement but I may be wrong.Yea, my car having a gen 2 motor is a definite plus. To some, they want all original parts and it's seen as a negative.
Look for one with a transferable extended warranty. Lots of people bought those at the time of purchase, including me. Shouldn't be too hard to find one.I'm just starting to shop with only a '17 in the budget. I'm seriously starting to second guess based on approaching the 5 year drivetrain warranty limit.
