  1. My friend has been going on about how fantastic his tune on his Merc has gone after one year. He says that on long drives he gets more miles to the gallon, it feels more responsive when he floors it and the acceleration starts earlier. I do a lot of miles (25k per year) and I get it serviced every 10k. I am about to get a new clutch fitted as mine is slipping and the pedal is long. My questions are: - If I take it to get it tuned what can I reasonably expect and - My car is still in Porsche Extended Warranty. Will Porsche be able to tell that something has be
  2. Caught up with this Gen 1 Cayman with P plate (S100###) on the A43 northbound. We then drove in tandem on the M1 until she peeled off to go on to the A46 towards Leicester.
  3. He was a few cars ahead of me when I turned to join the M1 from the A34. We then drove line astern for the next 150 miles until he turned off to Leeds.
  4. Hello to the black Cayman who played follow my leader on the A34 northbound and pulled off at Chieveley.
  5. He flashed me but I was too busy concentrating on the Mazda SUV that had just pulled into my braking zone.
  6. Okay I am removing the camera permanently from the car. The imagery is fantastic but the fact that it does not respect the battery charge level, despite assurances that it does, means I have had more flat batteries than I care for so once I source a replacement I will be getting rid of it.
  7. Whenever I forget to disconnect the dash cam I find pressing the open on the keyfob and pulling the froot lever gets it open.
  8. I generally wave/flash my lights if I can determine that the car coming towards me is another Cayman owner. I give a friendly wave and nod if a Porsche Boxster/911 owner pulls along side at lights or in traffic. I don't do Cayenne/Macan since I am below the eye level.
  9. I got a trombone cleaner and while I could pass the cleaner easily through on the driver side the passenger side holes both had a diaphragm and then would not move any further after this was cleared. Chatting with the mechanic yesterday while my car was in for a service it appears there are 2 on both sides. I missed the second hole on the drivers side. Also there should be a diaphragm on all holes but this diaphragm is what gets blocked. If a diaphragm is missing then they don't replace it.
  10. Yeah. Wasn't a complete loss. There was an Austin Healey meet happening so there were some lovely motors to look at.
  11. That's a pity. I only got notified of your response to your own post but not your original reply. I will be there from about 7pm.
  12. So not in the passenger foot well like the Boxster. I haven't looked yet but I failed to mention that I have a 987.2 - is it like you said?
  13. Porsche Reading wanted to charge me for this. Is it difficult to do or require specialist equipment? Is it identical to the Boxster (the only video I can find online)?
  14. It's my last week in my current contract. So I was wondering if anyone would care for an impromptu meet up at the Potter's Heron Hotel (Romsey) during the week, maybe Wednesday evening?
  15. Okay. Update is this. They gave me a Volvo V90 as a courtesy car via Enterprise. It took them until Thursday to triage the issue. It then took them until the Tuesday of the following week to send me a quote for the work. £6.8k. Such gems as the gear linkage (£750), AC weeping (£1600), AC top up (£350), front disks in correctly fitted (left on right and vice versa) (£1100), a clean out of a drainage hole (£180) and the clutch. No where on this quote was how much was covered by warranty. Also considering that the brakes were fitted by Porsche it was kind of rich to expe
