  1. Thanks for the info, I was about to email PCGB about this as I couldn't find the reference to it on their site anymore. Won't bother now! Shame, as it seemed like a good perk.
  2. IMO one of the best bang for buck cars out there. But more of a blunt tool than the Cayman. The Zed's weight counts against it, but it was very reliable and relatively cheap to run (excluding petrol!). Had mine for 9 years. I enjoy the Cayman more though as its a better B road car, and sounds fantastic now I have the Carnewal GT exhaust fitted 😊👍
  3. Agree with that! I've never felt the 2.7 lacking in power at all. Maybe on the track it would be different, but on the road its probably got the edge as you can push it further without as much fear of losing your licence! I had a 350z previously but the cayman definitely feels faster off the line to me.
  4. Wow. I've never seen anything like that before. Will be interesting to see what Porsche's response is.
  5. On my old 350Z which suffered quite badly from hazed plastic headlight lenses I used various polishes over the years including Meguiars NXT metal polish which was recommended to me (and apparently toothpaste and brasso are used by some!), but to be honest I found T-Cut to be as good as any if you are doing it by hand. But the kits with wet and dry sandpaper are supposed to provide extra longevity to the refurb job so would be interested to hear if that is indeed the case from those that have used one!
  6. Thanks Aaron. Yes another suggestion on a different forum was to tape up the gaps in the mirrors, seals, etc and go for a drive. Then remove bits of the tape until you discover where the noise comes from. Sounds like it could be worth a whirl!
  7. Not really - you can position the phone in portrait or landscape, and it's at a very convenient spot on the dash. You have different sized rubber peices which you attach to the holder which help it to grip into the slot. The only issue is that it can be a little bit wobbly as you go over bumps etc but I imagine no worse than other holders that attach to vents and so on. And I didn't want one of those as I've seen them break parts of the vent on other cars! For less than a tenner I think it's good vfm.
  8. Hi all My Cayman is suffering from another common issue I believe - wind noise eminating from the passenger window above 40mph. I've done some googling and it seems most people think it comes from the either the wing mirror or the window seal. Going to have a look at this at the weekend and just wondered if anyone else had experienced it and/or had any advice? Cheers
  9. I've got one of these that fits in the cd slot: https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F192632207687 Doesn't damage the slot but obviously not great if you use the cd player a lot. Which I don't, so works for me!
  10. luckily it turned out to be a loose connection causing the electric window gremlins. All sorted now, although I really need to find somewhere that supplies decent door panel clips, the replacement ones I bought from eBay aren't up to much!
  11. It's superb! Just driven from ghent to calais and the sound is something else, particularly the pops and burbles on the overrun! 😁 Gert is a great guy and we had a fantastic time. Will post a few pics when back in the UK!
  12. Thanks Nick. I'm on my way to Belgium at the moment to get my GT exhaust fitted but when I get back it'll be the next thing on the list to investigate!
  13. I'm not really sure to be honest, it definitely was working before I removed the door card and I probably tested the operation after reassembly using the drivers side switch. Which with hindsight probably wasn't a great idea!! Did you have to replace the whole switch assembly on your car in the end? Was it a major job?
  14. Hi all, discovered today that my passenger side window switch isn't working. The window motor seems to be fine as it can be operated as normal via the passenger window switch on the drivers side. I'm thinking this may be related to my removing the door panel a few weeks ago to fix the leaking door issue, but before I remove the panel for the third time in as many weeks to check the electrics, is there anything else I should try? I've read about a window reset procedure but that seems to be in relation to the window not going back to the right position. Any advice greatly received! Cheers Ben
