  1. Myself and Nailit meeting at the Weedon bp station on the A5 at 8.30 in case you would like to join us.
  2. Hi Simon, only an hours drive, i'm coming from Solihull.
  3. No, can't say I did. Seeing more vids of this guy he seems a bit of a plonker and clueless on mechanical sympathy. Maybe all of the other failures GT4 and GT3 are relations of his ...
  4. Yes I have seen more videos on this and see he has not treated the car well, I still think the turret failure should not happen to so many cars. I have driven all sorts of cars for over 40 years and never had a turret failure (suspension failure yes) and i,m talking cars I have bought for £10-£30 in my younger days. I hit a deep pothole at 70ish in my Mondeo on the M11 and no damage (Ford Mondeo is better build quality than Porsche granted and done over 250000 miles) so bottom line beef up the failing part.
  5. The response doesn't surprise me at all from Porsche. I put mu 987 S in for a satnav update and after driving for 20 minutes it died meaning according to Porsche that I had to buy a new Satnav, phone, radio system. I ended up paying around 25% of the original price at Wolverhampton OPC but should not have had to pay anything. People should be made aware that your on your own if if anything goes wrong.
  6. What, no Cadbury Glitterknickers or should that be Cadbury The Egg, That was nice livery 😃
  7. Finally got the bonnet open. So using a DC power supply, I first had to cut the lead from my tyre inflator to use as a cable connected to the Variable voltage / current supply and set the volts to 12.2 and starting current to 0.5 A and plugged the makeshift lead into the cigarette lighter socket. I then slowly over the next ten minutes wound the current up to 5A. After some time I was able to use a 3S model flight battery on connected to ground and the emergency bonnet release turret in the fuse box and the bonnet finally opened. I then connected a trickle charger to the battery but this would not work displaying error as the volts were to low. Next step was to connect the dc supply set to 12.2V and 2A to the cigarette lighter socket and a 3S model flight battery across the battery terminals in parallel with the trickle charger and the trickle charger is charging properly. I will remove the flight battery in an hour and then remove the power supply from the cigarette lighter when the trickle charger can manage to charge on its own.
  8. Does anyone know how to open the bonnet on a 987.2 if the battery is flat. I have tried placing 12 Volts to the post in the fuse box which has worked in the past but this time I just get a click of a relay and nothing else. All it allows me to do is release the key from the ignition.
  9. Why not come to Simply Porsche at Beaulieu, we normally have a good turn out of the club there.
  10. The Country cooks cafe is only a few miles from the Evo triangle so a good place to meet. In fact it was the Lady that owns the cafe that pointed us in the right direction, her and her husband are into cars. Hope to see you there.
  11. Just remember to push it out of the circuit before you call the AA.
  12. Anyone interested in going to Porsches on the Prom Llandudno 19th May 2019. Will be stopping on route for breakfast at COUNTRY COOKS TYNANT (LL21 0PT) and possibly a large Crepe with Ice cream there on the way home if last year is anything to go by.
  13. Good to know, If I had not changed my insurance for business use and had to start NCB from scratch, I would have had 40 years NCB on the car and 38 on the Bike
  14. No dinner for you for the next 12 months then .....
