  1. I value one of the ex-press Cayman Rs for insurance, sadly not that one! Would have been a fun reunion.
  2. Wicked. Interested to hear about your new paint find!
  3. I spend a lot of time up north (Doncaster, Cumbria, Preston, Burton etc last month) but I agree with Nige, just get it on an MOT ramp and you'll see. Really you are looking for rusty bits and bobs and irregular wear etc. Hope it checks out!
  4. Oh dear oh dear. I recommend the mantra "assume incompetence, not malice". Some folks don't know what they don't know. Most of the time, they do not know you exist either. Be happy you know 👍🏻
  5. This is a ticketed event and proceeds go to Macmillan as ever. Link to tickets ❤️ 8am - 12pm
  6. Wow, well bought. I did not think he would ever sell that. Enjoy 👍🏻
  7. Try isopropyl alcohol on a clean microfibre to clean the internal glass surface, super common for daily drivers to build up a film on the inside that then holds damp in cold weather. Give it a re-do once every few months. Both Cayenne and Civic were painful for fogged up windscreens until I started doing this. Nothing else seems to do the same job. Make sure you use a microfibre that is either new or has not been washed with fabric conditioner. Do not use conditioner on microfibres.
  8. Angus and one of his sons have been back and forth to Poland running aid to Ukraine so not sure but might be. I will ask him next time I see him.
  9. I would give Ben at Rennspeed a call. He's based in Retford and is a good guy.
  10. One of the few IBers who still has a full marble collection. Loving the new flares! I remember how heavy the exhaust was on my M3 when we took it off doing the clutch. Well done for working on the floor here. I valued an E46 M3 the other day that had had a full underside refurb at Redish before a complete repaint elsewhere. They seem to do very nice work as well as making and selling handy bits.
  11. Lift is here if you want to stop over for a weekend 🤣 WC is spot on; this stuff is meat and drink to you and it all adds to condition and value. Good work!
  12. Lovely. Will miss the IB pics! Drive safe and enjoy 👍🏻
  13. I would give Andy Moss at SCS a call, he is a helpful guy. 01404 549921 info@scsporsche.co.uk There appear to be some good options for car storage on a Google search too - worth a few calls there maybe.
  14. Hope this has worked. As an aside, one can also fold flag mirrors forward. So outside edge of mirror towards the front of the car - they fold in further and a little easier.
  15. I love this event. I once bought one of these Acclaims in Blue for £35 as a part ex from work. So many great memories of car junk I bought or sold walking around this field. Been thinking of buying something tidy but low end just to do the Festival. Maybe my Polo Dune will be acceptable in a few years...
