  1. Today
  2. Yesterday
  3. Thankyou Nick ! All sorted this end now...... ๐Ÿ™‚
  4. Cheers I reckon that's working for me.
  5. Excellent, you know these products then. Probably not the steering wheel, its in good condition and I prefer leather. Got quite a lot to do on mine this year, front suspension top mounts, bump stops and track rod ends and alignment, plus I could do with a new windscreen, as its very chipped and scratched, so got plenty to pay for already!
  6. Last week
  7. Agree ! I LOVE the one coming down the gearbox at 4:16 onwards for 5 seconds or so. That's so sharp sounding, aggressive and responsive you can just tell.......
  8. An update on this issue, i'm aware that some members were still experiencing this. The Update didn't fix it, but i've narrowed it down to some dodgy coding. I've tested in the affected user accounts i'm aware of and it now appears to be fixed. If anybody continues to experience issues of this nature please let us know. I'm hoping though that my incredible forum-building wizardry skills have developed to such a level that my foe has been beaten once and for all! @Ben La @987Monkey
  9. That hairpin before the hill looks so awesome to drive at 5:45
  10. I was hoping it might be an easy fix, but having spent a bit of time digging around behind the pollen filter, and from underneath the glovebox it doesn't look as if anything is catching or stuck. I've also tried to oil the motor itself, but doesn't seem to have made much of a difference. Looks like a new motor is probably the next step!
  11. I bought a leather one for my Sons first car....Corsa: that I also paid for ๐Ÿ™„ from the same seller Rich. Some time ago now mind. Same type of job installing on his. My Clio 200 was similar too apart from I used an industrial stapler on that; to attach it to the collar. Both fitted a treat though and were great quality - so I know where your coming from here.... ๐Ÿ‘ Iโ€™m probably going to get the gaitor and hand-brake re-done on mine when I eventually have my centre console painted. Makes sense to do it in one hit. You tempted by a steering wheel to match now ? ๐Ÿ˜Ž
  12. Cheers Syer, I got the gaiter from this guy on Ebay, he does other colours and stitching also: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Porsche-997-manual-Retrimming-service-gear-gaiter-genuine-alcantara/272679961298?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 Then you just carefully unclip the existing gaiter at the front, rotate the locking collar on the gear knob, pull the gear knob off, and then you can remove the collar and the plastic trim ring. I just stuck the new gaiter to the trim ring with EvoStick contact adhesive. ยฃ4 for a massive tin from Wickes. You can do it, have a go! Rich
  13. Thank you julian, it is exactly what I thought... Did you do the fitting by yourselves? Did you do some research for the engine cover to fit the 6 1/2 speakers? Is it on the market? Cheers, Andrea
  14. My Cayman S originally had the bog standard CDR-24 without amp or Bose or rear speakers & just the pony paper ASK door mids & dash tweeters. When I fitted a Pioneer head unit I also upgraded the door/dash speakers to Infinity components & I fitted Pioneer 4" 3 way speakers in the rear suspension turret positions... I had to run new O2 free speaker cabling from the HU. TBH, the 4" rear speakers aren't big enough (really need to be 6 1/2" imo) as they distort at reasonably high volume compared to the front speakers! I have considered fettling the engine cover to fit 6 1/2" I also added a Kenwood 150w active sub behind the pass seat. ... Julian
  15. What a shame I will miss this. It is my middle sons birthday! I will have to pass on this one.
  16. Definitely created some sort of tent in my pants.....
  17. Fab job Rich. Looks great that ! "Passing my way anytime soon......... ?" ๐Ÿคฃ
  18. Some pictures of the finished article: (One Drive link) https://1drv.ms/u/s!AtOhjivSNBrOthdGz7ALS8SoMlkf
  19. No worries Dougle. Hope you got them sorted. I had one of the anti-vibe plates stick in a front calliper when I changed my pads last year. i think one of the ali โ€˜studsโ€™ on the plate has possibly corroded into the piston barrel in the calliper. Couldnโ€™t see how to get it out without taking the caliper off to get it on a bench, and I had no desire to start โ€˜breachingโ€™ the brake fluid system. so I left that plate in for now. Itโ€™s doing itโ€™s job still, but when I next replace the pads Iโ€™ll get a garage to do it and they can sort it. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป I donโ€™t time myself, Iโ€™m not quick and Iโ€™m just there for fun ๐Ÿ˜ƒ I was doing 40 mile lap stints, which seemed to take 30-35 minutes before I was tired and brakes were softening. At a ~4 mile lap that would be 10 laps in 30-35 minutes so I guess about 3โ€™30 a lap? ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ
  20. Sound like you had a great day @Windymiller. Sorry I couldn't make it over - I had to change the rear brakes in the morning and then decided to change he front anti vibration dampers and one of the damn things got stuck. I'm at Donington on Monday, hopefully this nice weather lasts until then! What times were you getting at Bedford?
  21. Aye, MSV had their photographers around the track. Should receive an email mo day from them with a link to photos ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป I dont have any of that fancy in car go-pro tech - anyone watching it would think it was in slooooooow-moooooooo anyway ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜†
  22. Thought that (Patchy at best) might be the case. Not enough power in the sun to dry..... ๐Ÿ˜ Did you / or anyone else get any action snaps of you strutting your stuff ?
  23. Hey 748, it was damp and greasy in places in the morning but a good line dried out throughout the day. with the length of lap, and the long straights (longest is 1km and was hitting 125-135mph on that one) the tyres warmed up quickly. Dropped them by 5-6psi (back down to book pressures) after my first session out and they seemed to stay at F:32 & R:34 all day and maintained grip pretty well ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
  24. Lol @ McLarens. Wonder if the owners say the same of โ€˜usโ€™.... ๐Ÿคฃ Awesome day by the sounds of it; and your car did you proud ! Was it a dry Track or ??? **Was bright but crisp here in Sunny Suffolk. (Made it to a whopping 7.5 degrees C at 1pm !). Imagine you actually managed to generate some heat in your tyres though ๐Ÿ˜Ž
  25. A perfect weather day, and really enjoyed the ~4mile lap length GT circuit, some great fast straights and plenty of bends / curves variety ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป And unusually runs anti-clockwise.... Some great carnography - Maclaren (not sure which one, they all look the same to me ๐Ÿ˜ณ), R8 spyder, Litchfield GTR, elises and exiges etc, handfull of 911s, and only 1 Cayman ๐Ÿ˜‰ car was faultless, handling 200 track miles and returning me home without so much as a murmur ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
  26. Small write-up and some pictures on my "Members cars" topic here: https://www.caymanoc.com/forums/topic/1893-sevenfourates-9871-meteor-grey-cayman/?page=6&tab=comments#comment-18793 Fantastic turnout ! 100+ cars easily.....
