    Zunsport grills

    I found when I fitted mine (S not GTS) that sometimes you need to adjust the curve of them slightly to get them to fit properly. So offer them up in place, see where they're not quite fitting flush and then gently bend them by hand before trying again - usually only a few millimetres. I've seen some people online complaining about the need to do this, but to me it's inevitable with something that is basically handmade to a template. Having said that, I believe there have been occasions when they simply don't fit correctly. So if they look as if they're never going to fit into the correct place
  2. I never saw this thread originally, so was very sorry to hear the hear the bad news ... but it sounds as if it's now taken a turn for the better so well done Patt. And it sounds as if you've been able to hold onto Alice too? Great that it's sorted before Christmas.
  3. Someone else will confirm or correct me if I'm wrong, but I think for some reason Zunsports only make grilles for a pre-facelift 986(.1) whereas your is a 986.2, which has different apertures & strakes in the front bumper. I don't understand why Zunsport don't make this clear on their website - the car pictured there is a 986.1 but for other models (eg 987) they have clearly distinguished between pre-and post-facelift models, so I suppose a reasonable inference for the unwary is that the grilles you've bought would fit both 986.1 & .2 I've never needed to test this, but I gather (
  4. I don't want to derail this thread, but as the original questions seem to have been answered, perhaps I can ask a related one: When a private plate is assigned to a car that had previously only had an ordinary number assigned at initial registration, my understanding is that the original number was effectively put into 'limbo' and not re-issued to a different vehicle. I had assumed that if the private plate was later taken back of the car, that the car might revert to the original registration, but the DVLA link above (on page 4) seems to say that it gets given a 'new' registration, whic
  5. Police Mutual ... I'm surprised that Ian has only just become a customer Myself, I've just accepted the inevitable and gone with Saga - big drop in premium and I get European comprehensive cover without needing to inform them beforehand of trips.
  6. My understanding of the situation is as follows: For a long time, insurance was based on the insured person's obligations to disclose anything that could be material to the insurer, when taking out or renewing their insurance. It is clearly difficult for laymen to understand in all cases what would or wouldn't be material, but the basis of the contract between the two parties was still written that way. It inevitably caused some disputed over claims - more so in insurances like home & motor than long term (life) insurance. Because of this, the law changed in 2013 with the Consumer Ins
  7. Quote from the Department of Transport's "Buying repaired 'written off' vehicles - A Consumer Guide" : " Following Purchase • If you haven’t already, inform your insurer that the vehicle has previously been declared a total loss: ─ If you fail to do so, your insurer can reject any claim you may make on the grounds of non-disclosure." https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/470496/buying-repaired-written-off-vehicles.pdf
  8. Saw the photos of your 981 with your 4 digit number on full length plate. I also have a 981 but with a 5 digit number, I get my plates made up @fancyplates.com with the correct spacing but the length adjusted for the 5 digits. IMO think it makes such a difference. I bought a new front plate mountIng and adjusted the length to suit the new plate. Unfortunately the old plate mounting holes had to be filled and sprayed but it had to be perfect. An idea, just in case you are as pedantic as myself. Regards Neil.

      Thanks for this but my car does not have a 4-digit registration - that's simply me blanking part of it, so as to not show my full registration on here (quite a few people do this - it's referred to every so often).

  9. Hi Jon61,

    What I posted were the best pic I could fine. I would be greatful for some pics and measurements. You are correct, I am one of the common people seperated by a common language. I thought that showed but I see it dosen't I'll correct.

    Thanks again,


  10. Privilege offer a multi-car discount on separate policies although I don't think it is as much as the full NCD.
  11. It doesn't necessarily alter your argument for gap insurance, but I must be missing something - the price quoted on that website is £1200 more than the price on the Porsche Tequipment website?
  12. Yes it should be, and I would try to persuade them to do so, but it may be in your interests to do some if they are being a bit amanhã (?) about it.
  13. Non-expert thoughts: - If you had the equivalent of comprehensive cover, then surely your insurer should pay you even if they can't recover it from the other party or their insurer? (Of course you may not choose to claim if you know your insurer is picking up the cost and will just load your future premiums to recover it - is that what you meant by 'at my cost'?). - Even if the delivery company had any other type of insurance (eg general liability) I would expect that to specifically exclude any liabilities arising from vehicle claims. The company itself should be still lia
  14. Hi have you got a number I can call you on about the car? Text / call me on 07860 955452. Thanks Paul

      Thanks for your messages, and apologies for the delay in replying; my post yesterday prompted several enquiries.

      Please call me on 07867 976735, anytime day or evening, or email me on jon.archibald@ymail.com if that is easier (I think messaging on the TIPEC forum is fairly straightforward, although I am new to it as well.  I will also send this by email and probably call you a bit later on the number you gave if I've not heard from you.
