  1. I do somethings myself really depends on the job. I do extra oil services every year myself as I think 2 years for a change is just too long. I also replaced the air conditioning condenser's to save a bit of money I just thought it looked like a simple enough job and it was something I was happy to do. For its annual services I still take it to my Porsche Specialist indy mainly as I bought the car from them and happy to support them but also I do not have a ramp to give the car a full inspection so feel it is worth the extra money. I would be happy doing things like brakes etc when required. I do service my other car myself and just keep all the receipts and record dates of when the work was done. Self servicing would not put me off buying a car as long as i could see some evidence of it being done.
  2. How hard were they to change? Nice to know they are done and one less thing to worry about.
  3. Probably tempting fate especially as it’s off for a major service in a couple of weeks but mine has been fine so far it’s on 73k and runs perfectly doesn’t use oil and been very reliable in the two and a bit years I have owned it. Oil has been changed frequently and let it warm up properly.
  4. Have you checked after the engine is up to temperature what the reading is? These dials are a nightmare mine is super sensitive I was convinced my garage was completely flat until I got my Cayman!!
  5. Vauxhall Corsa 1.4 it's a pretty awful car but super cheap to run and does what I need it to. Dont have to worry about leaving it at the train station or parked outside. Gives me more to spend on the Cayman and makes me really enjoy it at weekends.
  6. Nice one I will have to give these ago. Hopefully they will work for me as well.
  7. Its great when you find a good dealer. i purchased my Cayman from Cavendish Porsche in November 2017 and found the entire experience very pleasant and easy I could not fault them. It gives you a much better level of confidence in the car even if there are a few niggles. Great looking cayman as well.
  8. Not one for me. The orange just doesn't look good in my opinion.
  9. Now tried both types of resistors neither worked for me. Going to look into alternative bulbs. Had to go back to standard for the high beams for now the error was annoying me to much. Shame as everything was matching nicely. Still happy with the ones that are working though 🙂
  10. That’s a hefty bill hopefully it’s maintenance free for a while now. Is replacing the coolant hose a tough job?
  11. Check the air conditioning is nice and cold. Not uncommon for the condensers at the front to get damaged by stones and leak. It's a pretty easy DIY job though to replace them. Window regulators can fail so check both windows are nice and smooth when going up and down. Nothing else I can add really. As others have said they are fantastic cars and if looked after should be pretty reliable. Had mine for 18 months now and it's cost considerably less to maintain than my old e89 Z4 did. Enjoy your new car!!
  12. Good result glad it got sorted quickly.
  13. I'm not thinking those resistors are the best option given the heat and amount of plastic. Think I will look for other bulbs. Have you left the bulbs in with the error displaying?
