  1. I tried the Nighteyes albeit on my Impreza and was not impressed either. I have since read that LED's perform better in reflector lens units, not so well in projector lenses, apparently. I can't claim to be an expert on headlight design and science though. With the 996 I thought I'd try the Philips Ultinon LED lamps, and to be honest they are better and seem to have a much better beam pattern, whether thats down to the 996 having reflector lenses or the lamp deign been better I couldn't say, but they are much better than the Nighteye from my experience. The Philips units are st
  2. Small (54L) was standard on the R, if you had a larger tank (64L - standard size on other models) fitted it would be on your option sticker under the bonnet, code is 085 I think...
  3. We have been approached by one of the OC partners, Zunsport who many of you will already know. Zunsport are looking to obtain a Development Vehicle for the following : Porsche Cayman 718 Gen 2 – Model Year 2019/20 If you are interested you would need to attend on two occasions : ( 1 ) to establish feasibility and produce working templates - Time 5/6 hours. ( 2 ) to establish Fit & Finish -Time 1/2 hours. If you are interested the " Grille Set " would be on a " Free of Charge basis” ( Value £350.00 ) with £250.00 towards to Travel Costs.
  4. Welcome to the OC! 👍🏻 The hard back sports seats across all 987 and 997 were the same. There are some available on eBay at the moment, depending on condition you’ll be looking at between £1,000 and £2,000. PorscheApart is a good well known spares dealer/breaker worth checking out too.
  5. That’s an achievement, I commend you...and I apologise for false advertising
  6. If you can handle this pair, it’s worth a watch
  7. If it's doing the calibration when you turn the ignition on, then the auto levelling is working, which means it's a case of adjusting the vertical adjustment at the headlight itself. The headlight adjustments are behind the 2 small (not the large one) rubber covers on the inner wing, behind the carpet trim. The lower of the 2 is the vertical adjustment.
  8. should be ok, it’s not the 10th anniversary of the 981 - although assuming that people can count to 10 is a dangerous assumption I realise 😉
  9. I’ve joined the Spyder groups in Facebook to spread word...dedication to the cause!
  10. It just occurred to me it’s my birthday on this weekend too, bloody looking forward to this! 👍🏻
  11. Well, we did discuss various shades of blue...lets not dilute the effort involved - you preferred chav blue and I prefer royal
  12. The flyers are finally ready! Feel free to share these and spread the word, there are 2 designs (because Pete and I clearly have different tastes ) and 2 different formats - Facebook and Instagram.
  13. @Windymiller @jcm987 @Craiglm68 @jaketame @Andy how are you guys finding it? Any issues you’ve come across?
  14. Flyers are nearly there, just waiting for feedback from the big man
  15. I see this one has come up for sale again... https://www.autotrader.co.uk/car-details/202009083449086?advertising-location=at_cars&radius=1500&aggregatedTrim=987 R&make=PORSCHE&onesearchad=New&onesearchad=Nearly New&onesearchad=Used&sort=relevance&model=CAYMAN&postcode=bt343su&page=1
  16. I went with the Tune2Air solution in mine, seemed to work pretty well. But then I never bothered pairing the phone to the PCM for calls (the glitch existed before iPhone 11).
  17. Oh sorry mate!! I didn't see it, probably spent too long staring at a computer today! Anyway, back on topic - meet thread updates only guys 👍
  18. Since we're opening this up to Cayman Cabriolets, I posted the event on Boxa - they'll have a number of Spyder owners that might be interested.
  19. Welcome! I don't think there is much difference in reliability at all between the 2.9 and 3.4 Gen II engines, the 3.4 certainly doesn't have any issues to speak of. The cars themselves are fundamentally the same otherwise. I'd say if you wan't a 3.4, then get one and don't look back!
  20. This is fantastic news Pete, well done buddy, this will be amazing 👍🏻 Now that a date and venue has been set I’ll finish off the work on the flyers. They can be used for FB and Insta etc. I’ll add a calendar date on the forum, and also on Facebook which others can then join and share.
