  1. Ok guys, lets just chill out a bit. I realise this is somewhat of an emotional topic and has hit closer to home for some of us recently. Lets not resort to personal attacks on other members though please. I appreciate everybody can interpret the request to stay home in different ways but it's not for the OC to enforce any such requests either. Follow your own moral compass on this one is my advice. Lets not fall out over this one everybody
  2. I noticed Craig had posted on Facebook last week, thought I'd update the thread here. Its no real surprise given the current predicament the world ends itself in that Simply Porsche has been postponed this year. A great shame as I think it's an event we all look forward to every year. Let's hope that it can rearranged for a date later in the year.
  3. I would agree with your thinking Jason, and would certainly try the temp sensor as the next step given it's a low cost item. Have you checked the coolant level and all of the obvious other cooling things? Assuming the front rads are ok?
  4. I wonder if a tool or a bolt/nut was left in the car when you had the work done recently and it’s causing the noise...
  5. Welcome to the OC BobCat. My brief answer is I don’t think you’ll be disappointed and given you’re looking for 987 Gen2 Or possibly 981 cars then you’ll find reliability is in the same league as any other German car. Woodhouse has provided an exceptional answer, well done that man! 👍🏻
  6. Have they replaced their roof now then...??
  7. Can you hear a sliding noise, or is it just a clunk?
  8. I have to say, i'm desperately tempted by one... If all my ducks were in a row, i'd be looking at one of these quite seriously, is it the perfect Cayman...? And it would look like this..
  9. An update on this issue, i'm aware that some members were still experiencing this. The Update didn't fix it, but i've narrowed it down to some dodgy coding. I've tested in the affected user accounts i'm aware of and it now appears to be fixed. If anybody continues to experience issues of this nature please let us know. I'm hoping though that my incredible forum-building wizardry skills have developed to such a level that my foe has been beaten once and for all! @Ben La @987Monkey
  10. Thanks Jake, Literally just packaged it up for you, it's on it's way!
  11. just about to do forum software update, fingers crossed that might be the fix we need.
  12. Thank you, and yes time seems to be a precious commodity these days! Let us know if there is ever anything specific you want that isn't on the website, we can get hold of most bits. We've got 2 new product ranges for the shelves in the next week or so, Polished Pigs and Sansom Car Care, really exciting times!
  13. For those wishing to watch me wax lyrical about This Piston Works - here is the interview we did for Detailing World a few weeks ago...
  14. I did indeed, multi talented these days! (now where's my 'Running a Forum for Dummies' book...)
  15. Oh you should have said, you'd get your discount wit the Cayman OC too. Either way, they've been quite popular actually. Feedback and personal experience is their products all work nicely and reasonably priced. Let us know how you get on
  16. Well it's that time of year again, another year drawing to a close. What a year it's been! The Cayman world has been graced by a new GT4 model, a few sighs of relief from the manual flat6 fan club there. A new 718.2 in the pipeline, and even talk from the sidelines of a possible comeback of the flat6 motors more widely. Whatever happens, we're certainly looking forward to seeing one or two of the new cars at a future meet. The Taycan is another interesting arrival and whilst not a Cayman, it was initially thought the car would be a 2 seat coupe/sports car and might be a sister of the Cayman, only with duracell power. It didn't turn out that way, but I wouldn't be surprised to see a follow up model of thank ilk soon. Speaking of meets, they've been somewhat of a rarity this year, mainly due to time constraints of the team. We're already turning our minds to 2020 events, Simply Porsche at Beaulieu is obviously the big one as @Craiglm68 reminded me the other evening and @Bushman is hoping to get a decent crowd together next year for the Bedford Festival of Motoring. We didn't get either right last year and i'll take the rap for that. We'd quite like for there to be more regular meets, and more spread out across the country to help make the social aspect of the club more accessible to all. With that in mind I for one have been thinking for some time that the Cayman OC team needs to recruit another willing volunteer. Whilst the club has a number of active members who willingly give up their time to arrange events, it would assist all members if the club had a regular point of contact responsible for coordinating events for the club and felt empowered to liaise with venues and members etc. So, if you are keen and have experience of organising car meets/clubs, would like to become an active member of the Cayman OC team, fly the events flag and are happy undertaking moderation duties on the forum then do step forward. Anybody who is seriously interested then please do get in touch by private message. The CAT Driver Training event was a great success this year and it would be great to do another with the club. We were highly impressed with the way that the guys @CATDT organised and ran the event for us, so a big thanks to them. We'll hopefully be back in 2020! Whatever your plans are over the festive period, myself and the team would like to wish you all a very merry Christmas and enjoy. We look forward to seeing you in 2020! Nick
  17. Amazing jumper!! Merry Christmas!
  18. When funds and circumstance allows i'll be doing just that mate!!
  19. Its a great car for a fun Sunday morning blast or a track day, great steering feel and really very switched on. They're quick too, it's as quick as the CR and handles incredibly well out of the box. However, spend 4 hours+ in the car and it starts to wear you down, the road and wind noise are very intrusive too. It's not weatherproof either, which is a chore! Its not that it's a bad car, it's more about it not fitting my needs to be fair. I like doing long distance foreign road trips and I wouldn't be wanting to drive the Elise down to the Alps for a week thats for sure, i'd be a broken man! If I had the space (garage) and funds for 3 cars then i'd consider it as a weekend blast/track car, but that's all it'd be. The Cayman R was a good middle ground, comfortable enough to do the long distance, but set-up good enough as a weekend and track car with just a few tweaks.
  20. No, I don't think you need them at all. I know a lot of guys swap out their PCCBs on their GT3s for Alcon steel discs. Upgrade the pads, master cylinder and the brake fluid and you'll be fine for most track outings. Personally, I never had a problem with the standard brakes in any given scenario, but i'm not particularly heavy on the brakes.
  21. I only know of one owner that had PCCBs on an R, they are as rare as hens teeth!
  22. I never fitted Ohlins, running the standard R suspension. Spacers and other bits were also removed, so it's just the Carnewal on that car. I still have the original factory exhaust for it, so if somebody does buy it and wants it. Its interesting to see where prices of these are, I sold 2 years ago for a lot more than the current asking price and it's barely done any miles since. I'd buy it back in a heartbeat if I was in a position to do so, the Lotus was a mistake...
  23. OK, you should be able to edit posts now, unlimited time frame for Members. 👍
