  1. I use Kamikaze Overcoat. Works a treat and doesn't need to be used every wash. I use it every eight weeks or so, and it leaves a lovely shine and great beading...
  2. I asked the instructor which one he would buy if he could have any. He said the 911 Carrera GTS. Of course, they’re all Turbo now, but his view was that it gave the best combination of power and usability. If I didn’t have a family, and had lots of disposable income, I’d get myself a Cayman GT4 in a heartbeat. Simply, an incredible car. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  3. I think you can do a GT experience, but it's quite pricey. Book to drive the Cayman GT4. Absolutely incredible car, manual, NA engine, instructor encouraging you to rev the bollocks off it and get the rear end out. Such an amazing experience... Best £350 I've ever spent!

  4. Cayman GT4, manual, at the Porsche experience centre, Silverstone. Drove the 911 Turbo S as well, but the Cayman was much more fun. Really felt connected to the car in a way I never do in my R and that NA Straight Six sounds amazing at over 6,000 rpm. Suffice to say, I gave it an absolute spanking, egged on constantly by my instructor! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Fun drive

    Just about to leave my client in central Southampton for my home in Chelmsford, Essex. Because of the train strike I have my R... Can anyone give me some fun roads to drive it on where I'll be able to open her up and have some fun instead of being stuck behind a rep in a 320d on the Motorway?

  6. Thanks. I just don't see how it can be the seals, as it squeaks as the door starts to close, but is still pretty open. I'll get myself some Krytox though and see if I can fix it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  7. Just had a call from my local VW dealer where my R is being serviced. Recently the driver's door has been squeaking on closing, and upon investigation they are saying that the seals have been dried out with the cleaning products I've been using (BiltHamber snow foam and Meguiars shampoo) and need some Krytox applying. Total cost is around £127! For a squeaky door! I haven't been down there yet to see what they're taking about in person, but this seems very steep, and the cause seems unlikely. Anyone had anything like this before? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  8. Came out of the Cineworld at Braintree and my Lapiz R had found a friend! Glad to see someone else parks near other Rs! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  9. I've been having some issues with the alarm on my five door Lapiz 16 plate. Recently the alarm has been going off randomly. When I go to the car to turn it off, there is a warning light on the dash indicating the boot is open, when it most definitely is not. I'm guessing it's a loose sensor somewhere, but has anyone had a similar issue and had it fixed? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  10. If you're anywhere near Essex or Canary Wharf, you're welcome to borrow mine for a few days... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  11. Or is it just a modded R? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  12. About 50 lb/ft... [emoji15] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  13. Offset Detailing in Rayleigh. Kamikaze Enrei coating. Top quality service. I'm pretty sure he does dealer visits too... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  14. When mine is serviced in November I'm going to ask them to fit the aerial adapter, which improves the traffic information update, and I'm going to get a SD card extender and ask them to fit that. That'll allow me to update via SD card through the glovebox. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  15. That's bizarre. I've got that system in mine and it works flawlessly. I'd be taking it back to VW... Feels like a warranty issue to me! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
