  1. by the time you do all that you are halfway closer, of the difference, to an R. Get the R, life it too short.
  2. if the rear hatch is to put the dog on to the parcel shelf above the engine then I guess that’s ok to some extent but I would say unless your dog can fit in the passenger footwell then the Cayman is the wrong car for you
  3. PDK and non-buckets, maybe worth you keeping an eye on https://collectingcars.com/for-sale/2011-porsche-987-cayman-r-1
  4. One thought is the stiffness of the ride in an R. It took me a while to get used to it, love it now, coupled with improved feel from PS4s tyres....but I wonder if the stiffness is the issue, and this might be a better proposition https://www.autotrader.co.uk/car-details/202109137308543 Driver and Passenger Seats w. Electric Backrest Adjustment and Manual Fore/Aft and Height Adjustment. Its got the Spyder wheels. Stance looks good. Great colour. PDK. Heated seats. Ticks many of your boxes. Only watch out is the dealer I have read mixed reviews on, but have no first hand experience of them. Just a thought. Best regards
  5. More than welcome. Perhaps a bizarre thought but have you actually tried the buckets? I ask as this company do inflatable lumbar support for the bucket seats https://p1designs.com/

  9. http://www.911uk.com/viewtopic.php?p=1454100 "While that was happening, both of us were researching forums, etc. looking at both 987.x and 997.x reports (they mostly use the same seats). There didn’t seem to be a consistent pattern. Some people popped them in and they worked right away. Some had to modify wiring, some would ask for help but not report back on the outcome"
  10. Oh what a drag. I am sorry to hear that. Give Garry a call at http://classicfx.net/ as he specialises in seat mods - admittedly trimming - but he is well regarded and he might have some ideas/solutions for customers he has dealt with such requirements....extra lumbar pads perhaps? I bet he'll be able to advise.
  11. Here you go, thank me later 😄 https://www.autotrader.co.uk/car-details/202109137318451 PDK, comfort seats, great colour, PSE, AC, fully loaded, reputable dealer and a mileage that won't put you off driving it.
  12. I see that DE listing now https://www.autotrader.co.uk/car-details/202108286749592 I agree with Gininho, I'd never pay 30K for a DE. Have a frame by frame look at the video of it and it seems to have a significant amount of small chips on the bonnet, which I'd not expect considering the lower mileage. https://i.ibb.co/L5NfN24/Screenshot-2021-09-12-at-19-57-57.png https://i.ibb.co/CtTgVx3/Screenshot-2021-09-12-at-19-57-42.png Could not be chips, but either way, I reckon in person its not as great as you'd expect. The gear shifter and steering wheel Alcantara is shot. Yes it can be restored, but why haven't they done so with a £30K price tag. Gininho's Cayman S Sport is far nicer, as rare if not rarer, and cheaper. All they seem to have done is give it a wash and get arty with the carpet nap. The decals are lifting in some places and/or a bit aged poorly on the edges. At £30K you could buy the blue R. At 10% more you could get the red R. Or hold out for something better value as this DE is overpriced in my opinion.
  13. probably between 25-40K miles...depends on options (on top of the baseline spec) as it won't be just down to mileage. They do come up, wait it out a few weeks. Then again, at £30K you are only 10% shy of an R.
  14. +1 vote for the Black Edition. At your budget that is one to hunt out.
