  1. yeh I can just about be ok with having one hot dog, not sure want to risk having two hotdogs... to be honest not sure the cayman is workable more I think about it. it can't be much different from the bonnet heat and if the dogs are on the roof - then I'm concerned about my drag coefficient on the track...
  2. Oh well. Thanks man, looks like it’s a bmw then
  3. Hey all, thinking of buying a 987.2. Random question, we have two small dogs, is the rear hatch space suitable to put a dog beds in? By this I specifically mean how hot/warm does the engine bay space get? Is the carpet always hot / warm once car is up and running? or is the engine hatch area floor generally warm? dogs are small so space size is should be fine.
  4. And in terms of budget, ideally looking at 20-25k, but would consider going upto 30k if it something outstanding.
  5. Hey all Im currently looking to buy my next ride, - but seems like hardly any manual Cayman S are up sale (autotrader/piston heads) (only considering 987.2 or 981s). I still toying between M2/M4 and Caymans... but don’t know if I’m looking in the wrong place. Any pointers appreciated, or if anyone has theirs up for sale or looking sell in the next 3 months. I won’t be considering anything other than a Manual Cayman S (987.2 or 981) and it must have heated seats. Naturally must have FSH, and be perfect mechanically. Will consider any mileage (but
  6. Just wondering if you could pick any five Porsche’s, which would they be and in order of preference please? Money no object, but excluding aftermarket Porsche’s (I.e. No Rufs / Singers) My work in progress list below: 1. Carrera GT (wonder how many would pick this) 2. 964 Turbo 3. 911 R (991) 4. Cayman GT4 (981) 5. 918 Spyder
  7. Thanks Andrea. yeh I’m kinda looking for best of both worlds... I have a feeling the cayman would be a lot more enjoyable to live with day to day, be more reliable, and easier on the pocket slightly. I e also never owned anything mid engined before and love the front light clusters (like a baby carrera GT). but the opposing side for me is, and what a lot of Z4M owners say, is the M has way more character even if it might not be the perfect driving machine. i think financially, it’s a slightly easier entry point to the z4m but may cost more in long run, versu
  8. Hey all, Just curious to see anyone on here who has previously owned a Z4M Coupe and also a Cayman S, or vice versa? Which did you prefer? Do wish you could go back to the other car? Why did you change in the first place? Whats more fun as a daily driver? Whats more fun to tour europe in? And which cost you more in terms servicing, reliability, and fuel etc? Currently own a Z4 3.0 Coupe, looking to go for a Cayman S or Z4M Coupe next. Torn between the two.
  9. Cool, yeh good to know the gen 2’s are in lower tax bracket. It’s a good 300 a year that I could spend on tyres / v power fuel Instead of giving it to Bojo and Sunak :)
  10. thanks guys. @dougle_turbo yeh with the lower tax bracket - I filtered on auto trader by tax, and there were a good few post 2009 caymans 987.2's (with 3.4 engine) with the lower tax bracket. I also checked on Parkers price guide - there seems to a selection of cayman s' from (1 Feb 2009 - 31 Jul 2011) in the lower bracket (£330 per year) and same with the cayman r and the design edition. https://www.parkers.co.uk/porsche/cayman/coupe-2005/car-tax/ Is this correct?
  11. Sorry to hi-jack the thread - but I'm also looking at a 987.2 S as my next ride (after deliberating whether to go with a Z4M Coupe or Cayman S. I have a couple of questions with the 987.2 - Can I change the steering wheel with relative ease myself from the triangular air bagged porsche steering wheel - to the circular Porsche steering wheel (obviously I'll make sure both the steering wheels have either controls or don't have controls) - High mileage engines - do they have a long life? i.e. I'll most likely only have a budget that affords me something above 70k-80k miles -
  12. Hey all So some of you guys might have come across my European Driving Tour survey I posted back in July. Anyway I've finally put together an itinerary for the tour on my website. The plan is to have a diverse mixture of cars, and I'll be pushing it across as many cool car forums as poss. So please share if you think anyone might be interested. https://www.theblackrunrally.com/europe/ If anyone has any questions - feel free to hit me up on here or email me on blackrunrally@gmail.com Unfortunately I'm not a Cayman owner - but think they are awesome! Anyway hope I can get to see at
  13. Oops sorry for delayed response - must turn on my notifications! Unfortunately I had to cancel - the dates didn't work for most as I originally planned it as a Friday, Saturday and Sunday run. Anyway this was only meant as a warm up run to better understand what people wanted from the driving tour - as the main run is for Europe next year in June. I've just updated my website - www.theblackrunrally.com - with European tour itinerary. Let me know what you think if you have a spare min
  14. No worries - sure, I think the next tour would prob in Europe around March / April next year. Will update you a couple months before I have details confirmed. And congrats on the big 50! Have fun
  15. Hey Craig - so I've decided to postpone the dates til mid-late october either the 19th or 26th October - if this is still of interest to you guys. I've had a few people who are keen, but couldn't make the dates work. The only concern is weather might not be ideal driving weather - let me know if those dates are of interest - and you and your mate would be up for it. Currently I have one possible Alfa 4C, two Z4s, my own Z4 coupe, and maybe an M3. Hoping to have people confirm before September 9th. I'll only hold the drive if I have at least 4-5 cars in total, and would only be taking p
