    986 S Zunsport grilles

    What they said. Mesh behind looks better anyway and it's really not a lot of effort and it's cheaper. What's not to like.

    Will it be covered?

    Yes I would be expect it to be covered. I had a bump on a private road that I lived on some years back and it was picked up and dealt with by insurance without questioning. That said and in line with the others I would have a word to see if she can be persuaded to drive on the conventional side of the road and if all else fails a cheap dashcam will help to prove liability.
  3. Don't let that stop you at least it was on topic which is more than can be said for most of the drivel on here.
  4. Some places will do ncd mirroring for you. The principal being I guess you can't driver two cars at the same time. Admiral mirrored my ncd when I moved the boxster to a multi car policy with them.
  5. Classic policies typically don't accrue ncb. One reason I took my boxster off the classic policy.

    Help - Damaged wheel locking bolt security socket

    Good to hear you got it sorted. Not too surprised the big chain didn't want to get involved. Like you, I used a decent local place and paid I think £20 cash.

    Help - Damaged wheel locking bolt security socket

    Any decent tyre place will be able to whip the lockers off in a jiffy. If you have the replacement bolts just ask them to swap them over. Otherwise you can get reverse threaded sockets that fit over and will allow you to remove them. When I had this exact problem though I got a professional to remove the stuck locker as I didn't want to risk mashing up my alloy in the process.

    Lifting and Jacking a Boxster

    This is what I do as well on all my cars. High lift jack for the suv helps.

    How to Replace a 986 Tension Rope

    No such retaining clip on mine. Maybe it was a later enhancement?

    Another insurance scam

    This. The fact that insurance is mandatory means the scope is almost limitless for people who want to bleed the system.

    They've written my 986 off

    Really? I thought they would be obliged to give you first refusal... It's your car after all! They surely can't force you to hand over ownership.
