  1. BB Tiguan is a very capable but boring car, we have got a 12 plate 2.0 tdi face lift model. Its due a second set of wishbone bushes which are the same as Golf / A3 and wear out quickly. The only other criticism I have of it the horrendous buffeting when you drive with the windows open. 5 seats and room for loads of luggage especially with the back seats down. Baz
  2. Mark The bumpers have turned out really nice, like them a lot. A trick that some people do is spray the parts that you can see through the grill with satin black, tidies it a lot. I have got a pair of black and silver pressed plates which will go on my car one day, number is not age related. Baz
  3. My CDI failed a few years ago when the paint shop jumped my car. Extra current had popped one of the connections inside the unit, got it soldered back on OK since. If you open the unit up you will be able to see if anything has let go. Baz
  4. I had a van a few years ago that came to a messy end and the insurance company knocked the value back as it was a CatD write off. They didn't mention this when I insured it though. The repair job on the Cayman looks very good in the pictures. As said above would be nice to see a full geo report. Not sure what the labour rate would be in a Porsche approved body shop, but they would want to replace everything possible with new parts at full Porsche price. I have had a few CatD cars over the years, nothing as good as a Porsche though. Some I have won on some I have struggled to break even on, its down to a fair bit of luck getting parts for them at the right price, quite a minefield when you start looking. Its the trim and clips and fittings that can cost most money and usually only available from the stealers. A bit of research into who repaired it would go a long way into knowing whether or not to trust them. One would hope that a car as good as that Cayman got treated the right way, but! Baz

    All I can says is "Want one" You have got to watch Topgear either on play back or at 19:00 tonight. Absolute master piece of German engineering. Baz
  6. Looks like its part of the original house and not just a box stuck on like so many extensions. Great job. Baz
  7. Cant you spray it to match the seats! Would look mega. Baz

    They're after your money! Really do look nice though, very good job. Thing that amazes me with some social media users is just how much information they give away about their selves, eg I am going on holiday next week so come and rob my house. Then there is the drivel that some people post, maybe they should get their heads out of the computer or phone and do something. Sunday morning rant over. Baz
  9. £100 K for the 3.2 almost makes the nice and a bit more modern 964s a bargain. As with all selling anything is worth what someone is willing to pay for it. Way out of my reach but even if I did have the money I think there is a lot of cars that I would rather have. Could even be 2 nice cars. Baz

    Jon Have you tried Lepsoms in Gillingham? They do repairs and machining so think they should be able to do or get anodising done for you. By appointment you can leave the car with them or they have vans picking up and dropping off around the South East. Baz
  11. Not really a fan of Targas but the grey one with 964 bumpers looks great. Baz
  12. Treated myself to a Dewalt 1/2 inch gun 2 X 5Ah batteries and charger, yes its a bit heavy but it does the job. Bought from Amazon all fits in its own box for about £400 which is very good compared to Milwaukee. Mate has got all Milwaukee which are good but the difference in price is hard to justify for the name and the amount I use it, time messing about with cars is closely monitored. Correct sockets and extension bars are a must and make sure you have the gun in a straight line. Battery is so mobile as well. Baz
  13. I have got one of the SGS jacks and its a very good bit of kit, double pistons which you dont get on all of the jacks and is well made. Fits under most cars or if too low a scaffold board lifts the car enough. Baz
  14. The word specialist is getting abused a bit like the word consultant, licence to print money at the very least. If someone is selling something on a commission basis they should be keeping the money separate. If they are giving any sort of warranty with the car that is down to them and should be covered out of the commission that they are getting paid. The whole world of business and finance is pretty rotten at the moment with everybody living off of other peoples money and "cheque is in the post" Its the little man at the bottom of the dirty pile who is paying or being ripped off. The shower of sh*te that I work for are very bad payers and have to pay Pro forma to a lot of people just to get work done. Naming and shaming is not nice when we dont all know all of the details but at the end of the day we dont want to see fellow forum users caught out. I would like to think that there is some way that we can warn people. Hope you get this sorted Flat6 and if the dealer can offer an explanation I am sure we would all give him a fair chance. Baz
  15. Mark are you still selling the CR now? Looks like you had a good time in both cars. Went to Brands a while ago for the classic racing and was impressed with the improvements whole circuit looks good. Baz
