Popular Post Aaron Posted April 2, 2020 Popular Post Share Posted April 2, 2020 Following on from my 1 year update... I'm now over 3 years in! I eventually sold the S2000 after 18 months and got the CTR to daily in Oct. I got t-boned by a drunk driver in the CTR in Feb. It's been repaired, but COVID-19 has put a stop to the final remediation work to get it looking factory once again. This has been a whole fiasco (guy was disqualified, "stole" his mother's car) and it's behind me now. My Cayman has now become a fun, special car to me since having a daily again. It's like a little treat I give myself every time I drive it. Mechanically, nothing has changed or failed (I've bloody said it now though). I had to replace a rear mud guard which got mauled by a speed bump but £25 for the part, £10 for bolts, 15 minutes to change it over and good as new. Car sailed through its MOT once again. I no longer MOT with Porsche Cardiff as they were always fishing for unnecessary work. The paint had another correction and coating; previous guy stopped trading, didn't do a good job in the long run. Disappointed is the only word applicable. Wheels were also redone at the same time in platinum silver with new centre caps - was definitely what the CR needed to liven the looks back up over the hyper silver. Rear badge was replaced and the entire tailgate was given the thorough going over it needed. Had new wheel bolts all around as the old ones were tired and rusted. Anyone interested in taking them off my hand, please drop me a line. Cried a little inside at the price of replacements (Design 911 were cheapest) but it had to be done. New gas struts fitted to the rear - learnt the rear tailgate has a two stage lift! Three bloody years and I never knew it could go so high! I have captured this for your own initiation into the cult of the two stage lift: Car is in great shape overall and I'm more pleased than I've ever been. Porsche announced the 718 GTS 4.0 and I almost faltered but couldn't get the numbers to make sense in my head. Will wait a few years and redo the numbers. That's about it, really. Car is being driven. I'm smiling about it. There isn't much more to say. The garage that my car sits in is finally getting to where it needs to be, but that's another story entirely. Until the next update! 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
