    Ac removal

    Easy way is to remove your auxiliary belt and fit the shorter one used on non-aircon cars. Unless you're determined to reduce weight, I would keep all the components so it's reversible & wont affect the value of the car too much.

    Battery charging

    I thought you could connect the maintainer clamps direct to the battery on a 986? The 981 has an AGM battery and you shouldn't connect the maintainer/charger to the negative terminal on the battery. This connects to the ground terminal on the windscreen wiper linkage instead, positive connects to battery positive terminal as normal. You could also plug the maintainer into the cigarette lighter socket as most do.
  3. Well it's an impressive piece of kit and not limited to 3 chassis's like mine (and a lot cheaper).
  4. Very impressive. Does this do any more than the Durametric? I have one but have to admit there's too much information & stuff to look at, probably because I don't use it enough.
  5. It definitely says all policy holders are eligible, even those still using their vehicles. I finally got an email from Admiral about my refund.
  6. Have a multi car policy with Admiral so that's £50, feeling a bit left out though as not received an email yet.
  7. Hi Rich 

    . Sent message ref parts 

    .   Thanks Andy

  8. I tried a few things but no matter what, I couldn't get the car up all four short of screwing the damn things to the floor. I tried on two consecutive winters but they went in the bin recently. Never had a problem with flat spots by just pumping the tyres up to 50 psi before storage anyway.
  9. If storing it inside, these things are awful on a painted garage floor - impossible to drive onto as they slide away. You really need to jack the car up and lower it down onto them which is really tricky on the wall side of a double garage. Must be impossible in a single garage. Save your money!
  10. Is that an Astir I see in the background,,,????

  11. This year, I paid £390 with Admiral for both the Boxster and the Type R fully comp including breakdown which is £50 less than last year.
  12. No, was £60 cheaper but that may be due to accruing more no claims bonus on the second car. Direct lines multicar policy was just over £1000 and had higher excesses.
  13. I just renewed with Admiral multicar for £420. The Boxster was £170 and the Type R annoyingly was more at £250.
  14. Rick, Durametric cannot code cluster changes Dan I think you'll find the Durametric professional version can code the cluster. The latest enthusiast cable can do limited coding, think it's just OBC and cruise. The cable was a real disappointment, my car didn't have any engine, alarm, air bag or air con fault codes in memory. I shouldn't complain!
