  1. My journey to my hotel is going to be a lot longer than usual. My clutch works, I have drive, but I am stuck in gear and my gear stick is a floppy knob. When the breakdown company arrives I have elected to get my car taken to my hotel (who I have rung but only get their answer phone). This hotel is in the middle of nowhere and I am guessing the nearest garage is at least a dozen miles away. It was only serviced recently.
  2. It's just the clear protector. Never realised that it was clear. Thought it was a different shade of white.
  3. The protective pad that is forward of the side vents. Only the passenger side was replaced.
  4. It got sorted last week while I was on holiday. The guy who did the paint work was the same guy who did my rear wing last year and fitted me in at very short notice. Then it was over to the detailers to get the ceramic coating applied. The paint had to be blended in which meant the protective pad had to be replaced. It seems more white than the one on there but that should 'settle in'. Looks good when it's clean!
  5. According to Porsche Bolton I have scratch insurance. So I need to sort that out.
  6. Noticed yesterday when returning to my car that some scrot had keyed my car on the passenger rear over the arch. It has happened since Sunday as the location would of been noticeable when loading my car for the week. The only place my car has been is the hotel car park, Tesco car park (Winchester) and work car park. Unlikely to be work as people park their M3, M4, GT3, GTR, Bentley, Evora's etc. without harm. I only noticed it as I had to park in a different location as my usual spot in the work car park was taken. Tesco is possible but unlikely as I was only there for 20 minutes, tops, as I had run out of razors. It was also in broad daylight and people drive past the location regularly. The hotel is the most likely but the hotel isn't cheap and you have to drive there. Also they didn't key the 17 plated red Jag that is also staying at the hotel. I asked them to check the cameras but apparently no one had been near my car while it was parked up. It took them just over an hour to check 20 hours of video (how long my car had been in their car park). So my question is: are there any recommended 'while-you-wait' repair shops near Winchester? Or somewhere that will take me to work after dropping my car off? I could get this done locally on Teesside but I need my car.
  7. The office car park is a bit of a pork fest. Couple of Caymans and multiple Boxsters. There is even a gt3 parked up regularly here. I have said hi to the silver Cayman S owner and mentioned the club but he didn't seem interested. It could be due to me ambushing him at 8am. Sadly outnumbered by the M2, M3 and M4s though.
  8. Caught a metallic lime green Cayman R on the A34. I flashed him and he waved back. As he pulled off I waved and he waved back. *fnar fnar*
  9. Spotted southbound just north of Birmingham. My copilot waved and they flashed lights as we passed.
  10. Passed a black Cayman on the A1 south bound yesterday morning. I flashed my hazards and he responded with a flash of his headlights.
  11. Saw an ox blood red 987 in Ingleby Barwick. Didn't get to see the driver but I was running behind him.
  12. I had guessed it was designed that way - it being perfectly square - but strange it being open and no cover.
  13. Driving back on the A1 today I had an unfortunate incident with a lot of wreckage from a blown lorry tire near Wetherby. I managed to avoid the larger bits but due to two lorries to my left and vehicles behind I couldn't avoid all of it. After taking it easy(er) to see if any plastic shards had given me a puncture I continued home. When I reached home I had a look and got down on my hands and knees to see if there was any damage. I found there was a square hole on the underside of my bumper on the drivers side but none on the passenger side. I was wondering if this was supposed to have a cover? Could anyone else with the factory aerokit splitter tell me if a) they have a hole there too and b) if it should have a cover? There isn't any screw holes.
