  1. I disagree. Anytime ive put an overnight bag in the boot space and then driven somewhere the bottom of the bag is quite warm when I’ve taken it out at the destination (ie don’t ever leave chocolate in there!). despite the heat shields underneath the car, the exhaust boxes are right under the boot and these heat it up too.
  2. Thanks @Lennym1984 - PM just sent👍🏻
  3. The S also has a thicker rear ARB I think, and the brake discs are thicker too. so, slightly less roll in corners and slightly ‘meatier’ brakes. But then the non-S would be slightly lighter so a ‘6 and two 3s’. but whether any of that would really be noticeable on normal roads…. 🤷‍♂️ i tired non-S and S, PDK (buttons) and manual. I’m glad I went S and manual. that said, if/when I change I’d probably go PDK (paddles) for convenience on real roads and quicker on track. But that’s more an age thing as my right hip becomes increasingly less mobile which makes
  4. Any R owners in Bucks / Oxon / Beds / Herts that would take me out for a passenger ride (or even let me drive there’s sensibly) please? I was at Centre Gravity on Monday for their excellent suspension inspection survey and geo check with Pete (see photo). After 2 hrs of (hugely comprehensive) checks and discussion his recommendation was to upgrade my S suspension with an R shocks and springs retrofit + Eibach / H&R front and rear ARBs (+ new coffin arms, drop links, top mounts, bump stops…) The estimate has come in at £4K! But before I consider parting with
  5. How sure are you that it is actually trunk clunk, and not perhaps a failing / knocking ball joint in one of the suspension components?
  6. What you’re doing with the tail-gate bump stops should work if your ‘rattle / clunk’ is the boot lid itself actually rattling in situ on the car whilst driving. If this is the issue then what you’re doing should sort it be process for trial and error - ie wind in, drive, listen for noise and wind out a half-turn at a time till noise goes. bit of its actual ‘trunk clunk’ then it might be that the mass damper weight is knocking against the tailgate trim panel. In which case the fix is to disassemble and fit some spongy-foamy stuff as per the guide. Alternatively, turn up the
  7. Are you sure it’s not just good ole fashioned ‘trunk clunk’? is it definitely suspension? can you Jack up and get on axle stands to get under and give all the suspension components a good hard shaking to see / hear for play and movement?
  8. Alfa Giulia quadrifoglio eg: 2019. 500 miles. 2.9V6 biturbo 500bhp. £54k https://www.autotrader.co.uk/car-details/202106183948580?advertising-location=at_cars&year-from=2019&postcode=HP17 8yn&model=GIULIA&page=1&aggregatedTrim=Quadrifoglio&make=ALFA ROMEO&year-to=2021&include-delivery-option=on&sort=relevance or the ‘poor mans’ lookalikey (with a 7 year warranty) - the Kia Stinger…. Eg: 2019. 4000miles. 3.3 V6 twin turbo 376bhp. £33k https://www.autotrader.co.uk/car-details/202107064693303?minimum-badge-engine-size=3.0&adv
  9. Link doesn’t work, think that’s to your actual account login. MY? manual? miles? GTS interior pack? PTV? Service history? colour?
  10. One of the group im going with has had to bail out due to car woes so we have a place for sale at £170 if anyone fancies an open pit Lane day at Anglesey on what looks like a fantastic weather day. please message here if you’re interested. you’d be welcome to join us the night before at the Cymran hotel on Anglesey and as part of our group (atom, megane RS250, caterham, 987S, TTRS) on Monday - we’re a friendly bunch 👍🏻
  11. I measured the gap on mine with vernier calipers and it’s 4mm consistently across the front edge of the bonnet to the bumper.
  12. coolant pipes and hoses at this age, I’d be surprised if your PPI doesn’t pick them up if they haven’t been done already. and maybe some significant suspension refresh (ie shocks and therefore potentially multiple control arms and drop links etc if their seized when removed). That said, I do think the suspensions on these can be good for 100k+ miles, it really does depend how they’ve been treated in the preceding years and miles, which hopefully your PPI will pick up. consider cosmetics like drivers seat bolster condition - a possible retrim would cost you, not prohibitivel
  13. It’s a 10 year old car - the mileage isn’t high. Porsches are not made of chocolate, they don’t spontaneously combust / evaporate / turn to dust / magically disappear / turn into a gremlin if fed after midnight when the odometer ticks over 70/80/90/100k miles 😉 what matters is maintaining them well throughout their life to ensure longevity and reliability. 👍🏻 Your PPI should ID all the usual watch points like clutch, suspension bushes, coolant pipes corrosion, brake lines corrosion etc. im sure you’ll have many happy miles of driving her, enjoy colle
  14. Did you order the NMA kit Nick? Have you self-installed it? Any feedback on it? 👍🏻
  15. Anyone from here going? I’m planning to drive down the M40 from Bucks just before 1700 to arrive around 1800. Jason
