  1. CAR magazine has used the piece we assisted with a few months back in 2018 and used one of our member's cars for the shoot. Always good to see exposure for the club - it's in the Feb 2019 issue if anybody is interested Thanks to @Junky for turning up with his yellow beast!! 👍
  2. Some great Christmas pressies there guys! I got Lego
  3. Great to have you 'officially' on-board with the OC Gert, many thanks for your contributions and support! 👍
  4. Following feedback on the OC t-shirts, we've decided to go with dark blue to begin with, limiting colours so that we can offer more choice of designs instead. So the designs will be; 987 987 R 981 981 GT4 718 All of the t-shirts will follow the same basic design as the one shown below. We will be placing an order but as you will appreciate the upfront cost of designing the shirts and buying enough sizes in each design will be quite expensive. So we will be limiting the first batch to those who reserve and then on a first come first serve basis. Once we have enough interest and confirmed orders we can place the order. If you would like to place a confirmed order for a shirt please provide your chosen design as per the above and the size you would like (either in this thread or PM me). Details, pictures, size details and product details are available on the store here: T-shirt cost is £24.99 plus postage and packing and we'll take payment once orders are confirmed. The t-shirts and printing are great quality and not cheap rubbish, these are premium quality items as you'd expect from the OC! https://www.caymanoc.com/store/category/4-caymanoc-clothing/ SO far I have interest from; 1. @Daz, i'll add you to the list. 2. @Craiglm68 what size do you need? 3. @Mavrik 4. @Bushman 5. @fergusor 6. @garytipping 7. @Simon Walker 8. @barryb 9. @Malcolm E Cay(718 L) 10. @graham.reeds 11. PollCay (Cayman R Med)
  5. Thought you'd all appreciate (in lieu of the actual things arriving!) the print mock-up with the label in etc.
  6. The date has been announced for Simply Porsche next year, the 2nd June. We'll arrange a stand at the show as we have for the last few years, we'll obviously need to know numbers for this event and will be allocated a space dependant on the number of expected members attending. We can arrange meet-ups, hotel get-togethers etc closer to the time.
  7. Its definitely worked Craig, we've got your order (no.174) through our store, so all good!
  8. Update! The t-shirts are on their way to us, and we will be adding custom neck labels, undertaking quality control, packaging up and sending out in the next week or so. We'll be fulfilling orders from the reserved list on this thread as a priority once payment has been taken. If you have reserved from the list above, then payment can be made through the club merchandise store. This way we can keep a record of your order and ensure we have your delivery details. Please ensure you order the item you reserved in the size you wanted - if you do want to change then can you let me know before making payment to ensure we can accommodate your order. Cayman OC Merchandise Store If you've got any questions or need a hand then just shout, PM etc. 👍
  9. Will do, what size do you need?
  10. We seem to have a few CR owners in this here forum now so thought it'd be rude not to have a thread dedicated to them. Lets see them guys!
  11. Porsche have officially converted rumour into fact with the announcement of the 718 Cayman T. In the same vein that the Carrera T does, the new 718 Cayman T sits between the base and S versions of it's Cayman siblings and boasts a similar level of specification amendments designed to appeal to those seeking a more driver focused offering. In terms of high level spec, the T is offered with the 296bhp 2.0 litre engine from the base car, which some will be disappointed with, albeit the performance from this unit is arguably still very much enough for a road car. What you do get though over the base car is PVT which includes a limited slip diff, again appealing to those with a penchant for anything over an 8 tenths driving style. 20mm lower suspension and sports chrono are also standard on the T. Performance figures suggest a top speed of 171mph, with 0-60mph taking just 4.5secs (if you spec PDK) and 0-100mph around 11 seconds. The 718 T’s attributes are shared with the 911 Carrera T, in that the sat nav and media systemhave been removed to save some weight and give the Cayman a more hardcore feeling. But you can add it all back in for nothing (in the same way as you could with the 987 Cayman R), and most owners likely will. In terms of pricing. The 718 Cayman T starts at £51,145, gaining £5,071 over the base car, which sits an uncomfortably £700 shy of the 718 S. The expectation however is that this will be a more focused and appealing car in the same way as the Carrera T is and many will be asking "is this finally Porsche's replacement for the iconic and sublime Cayman R?"
  12. Hope everybody is ready for Santa!! Have a great Christmas everyone, enjoy the day whatever your plans may be. (Ours is entertaining for 10 😬!!) Merry Christmas!!!

  14. The Platinum Member t-shirt will be a different shirt design, so you'll get both. Stickers were in yesterday's post, I believe 2nd class postage so hopefully tomorrow (Thursday) - PM if you haven't had them by Friday
  15. Thanks Darren, its certainly been challenging but i'll confess i'm also very much looking forward to receiving my own shirt!
  16. So, apologies for the radio silence! As mentioned previously, the shirts we chose were not available from the manufacturer and didn't want to go with a different product. T-shirts are now being printed and we're hoping we'll be sending the first batch out to those who've paid in advance and on the list after Christmas. Stickers have gone out to those who paid for them with a t-shirt order separately and should be received before the weekend. Nearly there!!
  17. Have you checked the electrical connections at the boot catch? Multimeter will help
  18. Bit of festive cheer going on here this year, 1st of Dec hit and the tree shot up! Keen as mustard!
  19. Yeah we always used to get real trees, visit the farm, tie your ribbon on your chosen tree and they cut it down and deliver in time for Christmas. Do enjoy that experience. May still get one for the other room.
  20. I certainly agree with Aaron, wouldn't put them in the oven at 250c. I recently split the headlights on my Impreza to get rid of the orange reflectors and tidy them up generally. I researched the quite a bit before doing it and the advice was oven temperature of about 80c for around 15 minutes. Give it a go and see if the rubber separates, if it doesn't, then don't force it, just stick it back in the oven for another 10mins and try again. The rubber seal is made from Butyl rubber and I ended up removing the old stuff and applying new, which is a good idea to make sure you get a good seal when putting back together and will avoid possible condensation in the lights. It costs about £12 on Amazon and it's really easy to handle and apply. Exactly the same stuff as in the video link below. @Equinox has quite a bit of experience of splitting the Cayman headlights, worth trying to PM him too. Useful video here...
  21. So, next Breakfast Meet is set! 25th of November, from 9:30am although i'll probably aim for 9am. Location is a cracker one that @Andy suggested and by pure coincidence Nick from TIPEC (some of you may have met him at Shuttleworth, and previously at the Sausage) also mentioned to me today they also have a crowd going the same day and suggested a double date. The location is Caffeine & Machine, Ettington CV37 7NS. I'm quite excited about the venue, and would recommend checking out their website: http://caffeineandmachine.com Who's up for it?? Could do with an idea of numbers, we need to book space.
