  1. So what happened at the dealer? Did you get them done?
  2. Well, essentially its number of posts that drives the forum ranks, which honestly is just a bit of fun, but does help other members understand who are the most active contributors. Ranks are; Newbie Member >10 Established Member >50 Senior Member >250 Distinguished Member >500 After that you're into the 'Gold' ranks, and the titles are a secret
  3. Welcome to the OC Jon Theres been a few discussions on PSE retrofit and alternatives, I’ll let other more knowledgable members jump in. Photos are obligatory by the way ??
  4. I really would pay very little attention to the AutoTrader ‘valuations’. The valuation is what the market is asking, not what AutoTrader says it is. Posting links to the cars you’re asking for advice on would help garner responses ??
  5. You should just be able to edit the title when you click on the edit post link, scroll up and edit the title. If you’re still struggling then let me know and I’ll amend it
  6. Full details on the production version of Porsche's all-electric performance car So how much do you want to know about the real Mission E, the all-electric performance car that Porsche are bringing in to production in 2019. The details are interesting, the car looks fantastic, travels at ludicrous speed and provides some much needed competition to the Tesla cars. Design The 2019 Mission E will launch with a sports coupe style with a low and sleek profile, very similar to the first concept we saw in September 2015. There are some subtle changes though, namely the wide arches which is a shame but maybe to be expected. The car will use a slightly re-desinged version of the body shell from the Cross Turismo, albeit with a different roof and will ride much lower. Performance Mission-E will do 0-62mph in ‘less than 3.5 seconds’ and It’ll also get to 125mph in ‘less than’ 12 seconds and have a top speed of ‘more than’ 155mph says Porsche officially and we believe the 'less/more-than' is the important aspect of these claims phrase. We fully expect typical Porsche conservatism on the numbers here. These bonkers statistics are delivered by a pair of powerful motors, front and rear, totalling more than 600bhp. They’re the permanent magnet synchronous type, as used by Nissan and others. They’re more power-dense and temperature-stable than Tesla’s induction motors. To keep the acceleration strong all the way to top speed, two-speed gearboxes will be used. The 918 decouples its front motor at speed; it’s conceivable the Mission E will have a two-speed box at the back and a decoupling clutch at the front. It’s fundamentally a rear-biased car anyway, as the rear motor is more powerful than the front. Braking As you would expect of a Porsche the braking is going to be pack leading and Porsche confirms it will have computer ‘blended’ braking where the pedal is effectively a request for retardation rather than a mechanical link to the discs. A computer works out whether to get that retardation from the discs or the motors. Noise Ok, so following the 718 Cayman release we all know how emotional we can be with how a Porsche should sound. The Mission-E won’t sound like a flat 6 for obvious reasons. However Porsche R&D chief Michael Steiner says: “It needs to be low noise, but with more emotion. But not a false V8 or flat-six sound. We could synthesise that, but it would be silly. The sound will be linked to the technology.” Battery Charge & Range It takes just fifteen minutes to charge the Mission-E, from flat to 80%. By about 2020, there will be a network of EV chargers across continental Europe, no more than 75 miles apart. They also include a contactless payment system, so as soon as you drive up they’re ready to go. There are currently a plethora of different routes to charging your electric vehicle and different methods to pay and which will work and which won't. We expect a format war of sorts over the coming years and hopefully they will one day all accept the same USB plug Porsche claim the Mission-E will cover 500km on the NEDC cycle but expect a lot less in real world driving. This still falls short of the Tesla comparable models which is disappointing. View full record

  8. Works fine, you’re trying to embed the links David. User error See here: http://www.caymanoc.com/forums/topic/173-michelin-n0-marked-tyres/
  9. Looks ok to me, I don’t think many others have larger...?
  10. Porsche must have gotten it wrong, I swear they are releasing their most ‘driver focussed’ vehicles as manuals these days... Too bad for those lap times eh
  11. The dealer should sell you the bolts at the parts desk for a few quid. The job is an absolute pig to do though even with the right air/power tools.
  12. 987 is the Cayman and Boxster post 2005 986 was the original Boxster
  13. You only need to change it once on a M96 engine. It’s not really an issue on the M97 engine. Not a choice you’d have to make for a Cayman mind...
