  • Cayman Market Watch Q2 2020

    Welcome to Q2 of the Cayman Market Watch, our regular feature primarily to provide you with a view of pricing on the Porsche Cayman market.  Aimed at helping those selling or buying to make more informed decisions on price.     Cayman 718      The not so new 4 cylinder turbo car introduced in 2016 seems to be a veritable bargain at the moment, prices for private sales of the base 2.0L car with average mileage and a few options are now around £28-30k.  Think what you

    Porsche Myths Busted: Car Insurance & N-rated Tyres

    There will be many eyes rolling at the title I'm sure and much has been written on many an internet forum on the topic of N-rated tyres.   But I'm not here to enter the murky depths of whether an N-rated tyre has a different rubber compound to it's non-rated equivalent, nor am I going to make any claims as to the performance differences and whether by not using N-rated tyres you will find yourself in a ditch one day.     Today, I'm focussing on something more specific, and answering th

    Car Detailing Products at The Piston Works

    Have you ever noticed that online shops selling car detailing products are rather a clinical affair, unusually aimed squarely at those more interested in the process than the vehicle itself.  Well, we're glad to say those days are gone, no longer does the petrolhead find themselves scratching their head wondering the difference between a citrus pre-cleaner and an all purpose cleaner or 'APC'.       Ladies and Gentleman, we introduce The Piston Works Emporium, a brick and mort

    718 Cayman now available on your games console!

    Well finally it’s arrived, you can now drive your favourite car whilst your P&J is tucked up in the garage.  Yes that’s right folks, on your games console (probably Xbox only).     Forza Horizon 4 has released screen shots of the latest edition to the game in the shape of a 718 GTS, looking pretty true to real life.       We look forward to hearing how it compares to the real thing and whether it’s been a faithful reproduction of the real thing.     Let us k

    The Slow Decay of Porsche Prices

    I suppose it's no surprise that like many a petrolhead, spending time cruising the classifieds is not a strange habit.  It could be likened in fact to a lady window shopping in her local designer outlet village and coming home with nothing but a receipt from Pret a Manger.  When you spend that much time hanging out in the classifieds and coupled with a bit of talk among those in the trade you start to gauge a picture.  So understanding the dynamics of used Porsche prices at the current time is n

    • Simply Porsche 2021
      Well I don’t know about everybody else, but I’m desperate to get some events this year, like I’d bite your hand off if you offered me a cheese sandwich date in a an empty field right now! 
       
      So Simply Porsche at Beaulieu seems positively extravagant.  
       
      If there’s enough interest, we can book an area or stand.

    • Complete Porsche Colour Chart
      Happened across this website which appears to have just about every colour Porsche has ever used on their cars, quite cool to browse and perhaps a useful reference.

    Cayman Gen2 Headlight Bulbs

    Hey all,    I need to replace my headlight bulbs, the low beam is particularly poor on my car i've decided, I swear my old Mondeo had better headlights!     What bulbs are people using these days to replace the standard halogen bulbs?  Sticking with standard, upgraded Halogens or LEDs?  I've read most LEDs have a really poor beam pattern and produce a lot of glare which i'm not really a fan of.

    Common a/c leak points to check

    Hi all, working through my 2006 S and finally reached the lack of aircon. Diagnostic tool reports zero system pressure. I've checked the condensers (one original seems OK and the other a recent replacement). Are there any other common spots to check? I'm aware pipes run under the floor to the compressor which can make diagnosis more tricky. Can anyone recommend an a/c fault finding service in the Manchester or East Lancs area? Many thanks.
