  1. I was away on holiday and was confused to have received insurance renewal emails from 2 different companies both for the Boxster. On return home I checked last years bank statement and found a payment to Admiral car insurance 11 days after I had taken out another policy with the AA. I am adamant I rang Admiral to cancel my renewal last year but they say I had not. I thought it was going to be a fight to get a refund but to Admiral's credit once I had sent them a copy of the AA policy they contacted me today with a full refund. I pay for my insurance each year in one lump payment using my debit card not a direct debit, how is it insurance companies can then use this to take whatever they feel like out of your account each year. I'm sure I cancelled but I have no way of proving it so it could have been my word against there's. With auto-renewal of a policy you don't even receive any document after you pay as there is only a link to view documents online sent out with the renewal. Anyway off to sort out this years policy and yes I have cancelled both the AA renewal and the Admiral renewal.....hopefully

    You must have connected both head unit wires up to a permanent live, you need to run one wire to a switched live in the fuse box.

    rear wheel bearing

    Nut torque should be 460 nM which is 340 pounds, a garage had left my drive shaft not properly tightened and there was movement in the rear wheel after a couple of weeks.
  4. A company called Rhino wheels in Southport, they totally refurbed all 4 wheels
  5. I had a set of 19" diamond cut wheels refurbed for about £100 each. Your tyres are more expensive to replace so are you also getting puncture insurance ?

    Track day insurance

    I take out cover using Moris at around £110 a day. http://www.moris.co.uk/

    Ohhhh yes yes yes - a good deal

    I tried A Plan and AIB insurance which are both site sponsers. AIB where useless... I had to ring them back twice for my quote! A Plan where very helpful but this year Hastings Insurance are two thirds cheaper at £204 for the year plus a free MOT voucher, much better than a cuddly toy! I was really looking for a company which would cover me for the odd trackday as well but I think I will continue to take out separate cover with Moris

    I would say there not as bright as most factory DRL's so shouldn't be dazzling to other road users.

    These are the ones I used:- http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NEW-2-PCS-SUPER-BRIGHT-WHITE-4-5W-H7-H8-CANBUS-LED-CAR-FOG-LIGHT-BULBS-WITH-LENS-/201310586365? No errors, battery drain or filling.

    Is the diode the right way round? The sliver band marked end goes to the yellow/red wire.

    I've done this mod on my 987, but I wouldn't wire the fogs up so they stay on with the headlight. You'll end up dazzling other road user's.
