  2. Update: Fitting tests, so far great! The ducktail follows perfectly the tailgate shapes! Even better than my R stock wing! Next step will be painting and bolting it! Stay tuned!

  5. I’m going to do them via a drop ship company, there’s no way I’m buying up 200 t-shirts again - the war office is already kicking my arse with last lot that’s still sitting around in various parts of the house. You’ll definitely get the choice of Viper though 👍🏻

  6. Hi all Not sure if this is of interest or help to anyone but some onboard from recent visit to Donny.

My R mods are: Wavetrac Diff, BGB Motorsport PDK cooler, Girodisc upgrade all round, Pagid RS29 pads, OZ Ultraleggera HLT with Cup2 Any questions let me know Hopefully

  7. The code is pretty self-explanatory - there was insufficient fuel pressure to start the car. Pump is on its last legs or you have a leak somewhere. The error means that investigation is required. I don't think this will be as simple as changing the same part every time this code is generated. You have the pump in the tank, the high pressure fuel pump, the fuel lines, the fuel rail, and finally the injectors. I would start with checking the fuel pressure itself (not sure whether this can be read with a generic OBD scanner), then moving onto switching parts. The likel

  9. So I have just got back from a great Ring trip. The weather was very, very wet in the morning and dried out as the day went on. This lap was about 70% dry with the rest still very slippery! (see code brown at 6:45). Never the less I almost beat my best dry time (8:41) so pretty happy with that! Absolutely love the place!

  10. .... then remove the top and front engine covers from your Cayman and take it for a really good, long, hard thrash. The noise is simply divine! That is all. 😄

  11. Well if Pete approves then the t-shirts will be available shortly, in a myriad of colours I must add - viper green is pretty rare right! We are moving to a new way of offering t-shirts and club merch, I have boxes of t-shirts all around the house that haven't yet sold...So, we'll do these and some other designs and they'll be available in greater ranges etc.

  12. Sorry guys, I've had a hectic week, sold a house, bought an old shed, and been busy at work. T shirt looks great, I'll definitely have one, let me know how much. Not included in entry price, you can't have lunch, a venue and a t shirt for 15 quid...... I've had the meeting and the venue is perfect, booking details to follow. It's going to be a very good day.

  13. Hi @Rob66 I've just done this on mine and as @Windymiller suggested CP4L is the best place to go. I got my Pads and sensors fluids from AutoDOC which were very competitive on pricing , considerably cheaper than CP4L infact (they don't sell sebro discs). Textar Front pads were £63.18 and Rear Pads were £43.36 (£91 and £45 on CP4L) If you do decide to order through AutoDOC it will take roughly 5 working days before it gets to you so if you order now you probably wont get it till thursday/Friday next week. Great service though, first time using and i'd use aga

  14. Thanks for the kind words. My intension has always beed adding a touch of retro feeling to the car yes without looking aftermarket! Yes production starting soon now. Please feel free to follow my Insta page for updates!

  15. finally got my car back from the Indy this evening, he had some trouble with my hardlines and all of them, yes all of them needed replacing! i must be very unlucky! 😟 I haven't had a chance to really push it yet but initial thoughts are amazing! The pedal feels nice and strong now, I'm over the moon with it! 😄 happy i took your advice on this 👍 Cheers Julian!

  16. I have powerflex camber bushes (they came as part of a kit) which push the coffin arms out. They're actually really good... I just wasn't expecting that much when I told them to "max out the front."

  18. I have track day cover with A-Plan (who are amazing) and it costs £200 per year for 5 days. I don't know whether it covers international circuits but worth a look. When I went to the ring back in 2010 we just risked it but I no longer have the courage/stupidity for that. Speaking truthfully, I'd actually be a bit scared to really push it on the ring these days - it's a pretty mad place and I've had enough tank slappers on UK tracks with plenty of run off to make me realise that I probably don't have enough talent for a fast lap of the ring (when I first went it was my first real "t

  19. As somebody who has spent their entire career working in finance and investment funds, I think classic and modern classic cars can be a very wise and tax efficient investment. Not without costs associated with maintenance and storage though. But still, a very good return can be had on ones capital. As a petrolhead, nothing saddens me more than seeing great cars being bought and locked away and not enjoyed for the one thing they were designed for. Driving. I’m torn on the idea, but if ever somebody tells me they’re a petrolhead with classic cars locked away gathering du

  22. ^^^ Actually I think I will go to that! I've found the thread. I can either land on ferry at Holyhead or Stranraer. I assume there will be groups sorting mini 'cruises' down to the event from various locations so would hopefully tie in with one of them... Not many R's in Ireland but I'll find a few by that stage and see if there's any takers...

  23. save yourself some money and get a good gen 1S without the bore scoring. A gen1 car can be scoped for £60~ by any Porsche Specialist which will rule out bore scoring, the IMS failure is very rare (5%) most have already died and is very easy to identify when listening to the car too. Even if you were to be super unlucky, you could have your engine specialist/hartech rebuilt with the difference of money you are saving! just my 2pence

  24. Congratulations Andy, looks like you got a lovely car at sensible money there, well done. I'm pleased to hear that you are pleased with it, in my opinion this will only get better as you gel with the car and learn to exploit the weight distribution and precision of the steering. I did 2500 miles of fast mountain roads in the Alps and Pyrenees last summer and by the time I arrived at the ferry to come home the car really felt like an extension of me. I had just as much fun as previous tours in a GT3. They really are a great little car. How d

  25. Oh yes, the hissing noise on throttle opening was amazingly loud! Next time then try it with the front cover off as well; you get a lot more road and suspension noise as well. As you said - rude not to. And wonderful!

  28. Nice smooth lines peteslag. I was there on the 24th in my Cayman R. The conditions were good, but the mix of driving was err.. interesting. That white GT3 seemed to be a pool car, maybe some driving experience type thing. Occasionally you'd come across it apparently parking up on an apex. I can't say I was quite as patient as you

  30. The problem is that you can only overtake with consent and there was no way I could out drag a GT3 in the straights. Diving down inside will never be an option for me on a general track day. I did it at Anglesey in my old VX220 and very nearly had a collision. Skip to 4:55 in this video and you'll see. Bloody Cayman drivers!

  33. Hi Guys, What discs/pads combos do you guys tend to go for? Is it the standard Sebro Discs and Textar pads or have you found another combo that works really well? On previous cars i've delved into the aftermarket world of EBC and Ferodo/Dixcels and have always been impressed Interested to hear your thoughts...

  34. I'm not normally one for spoilers and all that kind of thing but that duck tail looks epic. I might have to have one if and when you go to production. It gives the car a retro sort of look. Love it!

  35. Hi Rob, that would be a fine fit for standard road use. However, you’d probably get it all for less on carpartsforless.co.uk with their endless discount deals (currently 22% with code BIG22) AND NB Design911 prices are +VAT +P&P, whereas CP4L are inclusive of VAT and free P&P! go for sebro or pagid drilled discs and textar pads and the associated pad vibration dampers and sensors. https://www.carparts4less.co.uk/brake-discs https://www.carparts4less.co.uk/brake-pads NB: the rear dampening discs are 2 different sizes - you will need 4 of each

  36. Most LED bulbs are designed for reflector type headlights, however there are LEDs available for projector headlights. These for example https://www.autobulbsdirect.co.uk/h7-twenty20-projector-led-headlight-bulbs-pair.html Could be worth a punt.....

  37. The 987 Cayman R is a thing of beauty (look at the white one here) , like you say, Porsche nailed it and in the commotion of the 981 being released I think it was a car that didn't really have it's day It's so strange how in the quest for the perfect manual "drivers" car we all assume the latest model is going to be better but in what way? I mean do you need more than 300hp on UK roads? My Cayman S is unbelievably good to drive , it's insanely fast in 3rd , brakes are amazing , looks incredible in Speed Yellow and you can drive it as a normal car should you wish...what more do you want.?

  40. Welcome to the OC! 👍🏻 The hard back sports seats across all 987 and 997 were the same. There are some available on eBay at the moment, depending on condition you’ll be looking at between £1,000 and £2,000. PorscheApart is a good well known spares dealer/breaker worth checking out too.

  41. Sorry everyone for not posting much on here, as some of you know I tend to do most updates on Instagram. These are the first 2 samples manufactured, they both need testing before production can start but so far I'm happy. It's all happening and fingers crossed tests will go well as I've had a huge request (didn't expect this much interest!!) on all the designs. So I'm determined to deliver. Once the manufacturer sends me these I'll be installing them on my car and report on here and Insta. Hope you like what you see so far. Cheers

  42. Disagree with the B road comments on the PS4. I’ve done about 100k miles on this tyre (BMW 130i, M135i, Lotus Exige V6 and mk7 Golf GTi). IMO and experience the best all round road tyre you can buy - assuming 18” and below otherwise PS4S.

  43. Thank you, picked it up this morning and have driven it to work! Just want to go out for a drive! Lovely car though. I was looking at Gen 2's over a year ago and the prices haven't changed since then, like you say, if anything the prices are fractionally higher than I saw last year. Be good to be in a car that doesn't depreciate massively, haven't owned an appreciating car since the S2000.
