  1. Could try cleaning out and putting silicone grease on the rubber frame on the a pillar, I had a similar issue and it was due to the sensor thinking there was an obstruction
  2. Yes they are the M030, l would say the car feels much more planted than before, so corners flatter and faster. I think some say the spacers reduce oversteer but I haven't experienced that, although I don't track the car.
  3. That's the setup I have, recommended by Gert at Carnewal, who can provide the spacers (H&R), combined with the H&R springs which lower the car by approx 30mm. I love it, looks and handing both greatly improved. Car should have come out of the factory like this IMO! 😁
  4. Thanks Jason for organising this, and Syer / Marcos for the info, much appreciated!
  5. I've run a K&N filter for getting on for 2 years now with no issues whatsoever. Definitely increased induction noise (in a good way), which may cause the feeling that you are getting more power, but I could not say it has increased BHP, in fact some think the stock filter is better performance wise. Possibly the throttle response is a little sharper? The noise and the longevity swayed it for me though - better to re-use then throw away and only needs re-oiling every 40K miles in normal conditions I think.
  6. Ok time for a quick update on this - nice weather has meant I've finally had a chance to get a good look at the adjustors at the bottom of the door. There are 4 rubber grommets which easily prise off at the bottom of each door. The 2 nearest to the middle each give easy access to a 10mm (I think) bolt. If you loosen off each of these bolts, you can move them left or right (or in and out depending on how you look at it!) to adjust the rake of the window, front and back, so its closer or further away from the frame. You can easily see the whole window glass moving as you do it. I adjusted mine so that when closed the window was pressed almost as far as it would allow against the window frame, ensuring a very tight seal. Re-tighten the bolt and replace the grommets and then test run. Mine used to squeal quite badly at 45mph ish. Took it down the motorway at over 70 and no more noise. Very happy! Hope this helps someone👍
  7. This is the video that convinced me to go for the Carnewal GT a few years ago:
  8. Yes I think I read that article before purchasing the oil, and a few other places recommending the same - not sure I understand it all but they sound like they know what they're talking about!!
  9. Hi Syer, yes was about 1/3 ish of the final bottle left so I reckon you should be fine 👍
  10. After 85k miles and 12 years thought it was time to change the gear box oil. Got 3 litres of Motul Gear 300 online for £39 and it took my local mechanic an hour to do, so all in less than £100. The gear shift action is definitely improved, much smoother action and less notchy. Would definitely recommend if you haven't had it done already.

  12. You can email Gert at info@carnewal.com. Defo recommend the trip to Belgium to sort those bolts out and fit a GT exhaust!
  13. My other half recently bought a Toyota Yaris hybrid and I have to say as a commuting tool its ideal - I find myself trying to keep it in electric only mode for as long as possible with tiny prods of the accelerator - the complete opposite to when I take the Cayman out for a spin! So I'm OK with a primarily electric car future as long as there is still a place for old codgers like me who need their combustion engine fix at the weekend!
