  1. That's interesting. When I do a specific search on Autodoc for my 987.2R I just get a load of weird pumps but doing the same for 987.2S shows the Pierburg one you linked too. Their search function is getting confused and I've noticed that happen before. Out of Stock though
  2. Yes, light weeping from the bottom of the engine. Leaves as little puddle in garage. Mines the bearing/shaft I assume as some actually lose the impeller. Maybe better on the gen 2 though. Mine was replaced under warranty at 17k miles and it's done 40k since.
  3. Just to note I can find several suppliers of the Pierburg pump for a gen 1 but not a gen 2.
  4. Anyone know where to source Pierburg water pump for a 987.2 in UK. Reading thread below, that appears to be the Porsche OE manufacturer. Not seeing them listed for a gen 2 in my usual online spots... Frazerpart, Design911, Autodoc, EuroCarParts... https://rennlist.com/forums/996-forum/1162320-water-pump-recommendations.html
  5. Wow, I never believe people when they say do that but there you go it can work!
  6. Yes, I was pretty shocked how much of an effect even dropping mine 1.5psi. It was literally a new car when we were pushing hard on B roads. As well as the ambient temp increase and the normal brake disc heat conduction into hub/rims, in the Cayman we've also got the exhaust running through the rear wheel arch and the residual engine block heat too...
  7. Slightly off topic, but on a few fast drives in my R over the hot spell I found my rear stepping out more than usual. I did enjoy it but was confused as tyres aren't worn (only running lowly PS2's fitted by previous owner and will switch to PS4S). On my last run in hot weather a week ago, I dropped the pressures all round down by 1-2psi before setting off and it certainly fixed things. The pressure in the tyres had been getting too high on fast B-road runs with the excess heat.
  8. Talking about Speed Yellow, this seller wins the prize for most crap photos ever... https://www.autotrader.co.uk/car-details/202107225309916?model=CAYMAN&colour=Yellow&sort=relevance&radius=1500&advertising-location=at_cars&onesearchad=New&onesearchad=Nearly New&onesearchad=Used&make=PORSCHE&include-delivery-option=on&postcode=bt343su&aggregatedTrim=987 S&page=1
  9. Yes, it seems the world went all austerity not only financially but also sports car color choice hence so many black, silver, white gen 2's.
  10. Did they even come in yellow?? I remember this one selling in march year... https://collectingcars.com/for-sale/2009-porsche-987-cayman-s-sport-1
  11. Two locations, same mobile number to different names. Hmmm https://www.southernprestigecars.co.uk/contact-us
  12. Wonder if the red one has been tracked? Not that it's deal breaker but the early clutch and all that...
  13. I didn't mention it in my OP but that is the Mourne Mountains in the background of that photo - where ITV filmed their recent Porsche 928 piece for 'The Car Years'...we drove through those roads in that episode to get here. https://www.itv.com/hub/the-car-years/2a6359a0007 A big crew of us are hitting the North Coast this Sunday too where another episode was fimed. We passed a cop car on a run a month ago and that GT3 RS and another GT3 were front runners and giving it both barrels...the cops just made a gentle down waving motion as they went by as if to say "Ste
