  1. Paul, I did not drive on the N0`s. The set that I purchased were mixed, front N rated / rears non N rated. I replaced the fronts given that I was taking them on track plus one of the N0 fronts had a (correct) puncture repair. The set of non N rated performed superbly on the Anglesey (PCGB) track day trip last year.
  2. 235/35 x 19 91Y XL Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2`s ... Non N rated vs. N0 rated Non N rated = on CR wheel Non N rated has rim protection inside & outside (dated 4415) N0 has no rim protection (dated 2915) = a more uniform sidewall curvature
  3. Agree, it would be good to know the complete technicalities behind the N process. As a visual comparison ... I have both N and non N versions of the same size Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 ... there is a definite physical difference in one of the sidewalls. I`ll get some photos later.

    new 981

    To me ... bonding with a car can only be achieved with decent seat time. The past two years have seen 8k in a manual CR and 9k in the 981 CS. Most journeys are at least two hours, many are four ... most without exiting the car ... with not a dual carriageway / motorway in sight. As regards the PDK ... one of my favourite modes is ... when in Sport, using the brakes to induce dropping down the gears and then recovering the initial speed with those super smooth upshifts. After several miles the `systems` have `learned` what you want ... superb ! In comparison ... heel and toe in the CR whilst extremely satisfying (if / when I got it right) was rather laborious and hence less safe ... for this driver.

    new 981

    It appears that you have not fully explored the PDK`s functions and capabilities ... ? Why not visit the Silverstone Porsche Experience Centre with it ... ? I moved from a manual Cayman R to a PDK 981 Cayman S ... no regrets at all.
  6. Excellent news 😊 Maybe similar to those run at Pikes Peak recently ...
  7. Re. profiles / dimensions .... consider asking http://www.centregravity.co.uk/contact/
  8. ... it`s not, Porsche changed providers (from Marsh) last year. However, Marsh will (via Aviva in my case) still provide the same cover for the same cost !
  9. No, not shared ... duplicated. Upon proof of existing NCB they will give you the same on a second car. I did this with Marsh (Premier Solutions) 0345 600 6419, they are a broker and have my policies with Aviva. Marsh used to be linked with a Porsche UK / PCGB scheme but lost the contract last year. I stayed with them and had a better deal than that offered by the replacement company !
  10. Some companies will offer / transfer your NCB to a second policy ... have you spoken with Mannings ?
  11. Yes, 987`s use 35 profile on 235 / 265 x 19`s ... PS4S available - non N Rated Road legal 19`s on track ... Yokohama AD08R are very good https://www.yokohama.co.uk/Tyres/Car-Tyres/Summer-Tyres/(product)/AD08R
  12. N rated PS4S are currently not approved for any model (ref. current Summer Tyre Approvals list). The current N rated 20" 35`s in 235 / 265 appear to be a legacy from the intended but delayed OEM supply to the 718 models. Only other N rated are 20" 245 / 35 and 305 / 30 ... for new 718 GT4 perhaps ? Maybe ... Porsche only N rate new `model` tyres in conjunction with their new model releases ?
  13. 1. Nope but have traversed some adjacent / intermediate routes ... choose your timing very carefully, off peak preferably. 2. Check out https://www.northcoast500.com/explore-the-route/ if not already done so. Also consider ... https://www.northeast250.com/ , again ... have not run this exact route.
  14. Take it to your local OPC ... I had similar and they repaired it.
