  1. Weird. Just had the start stop deactivated warning triangle come up along with red warning light for airbag and seatbelt ?

    Had a clean bill of health at its Mot on Thursday last week so will be taking it back to see what the underlying fault is. Will report back.

  2. I use CarPlay in my everyday car particularly Waze. The camera locations, traffic, alternate routing and live police/camera positions in particular if your crossing the unofficial toll on the m74 is a point saver on its own. Also being completely screened based it’s easy to navigate. I’ve got a trip along the south coast in August and I’ll be putting my phone in the cup holder and if that doesn’t work I’ll be getting the nmautos upgrade to the pcm added before heading for some longer continental trips next year.

  3. Rang Adrian Flux today to give them a second chance. They managed to get it down 25% but still too much. Did the Meerkat and had Admiral as the first offer.

    Here's where it gets interesting. If you add one of the fleet to the quote you get a discount. Ended up insuring the house and three cars including a new driver and business use on the imperial cruiser. Boxster is going to be 250 the cruiser 260 and the new drivers 450 ! I expect it to all unravel at renewal but I have been quote v happy !

  4. Renewal time and AF have gone for the jugular with a renewal quote which is only 100% higher than the best Compare the Market quote despite earning another year's NCB. My wife's car quote this year was triple the best quote if she stayed with the same insurer. They always blame inflation and claims experience but it seems to be be very specific to them ! Looking forward to seeing what AIB can do.

  5. Took it for a long run this weekend due to the A14 being closed to knock down a bridge and was surprised to see how quickly the battery got enough charge to recommence stop/start. I think I'll save the charger money by driving more and often.

  6. Thanks all for the help in helping me to choose the 981. Went to Dove House in Northants fully intending on buying a Cayman and ended up in the below. Fantastic decision. 2013 45k 2 owners. If anyone is going to Dove House on a run out to Deane Park on Sunday I look forward to seeing you there.

  7. I’ve only had nice car from passerbys. Previous to this I had a sbc lotus 7 which was loud and useless for practical driving. Today it was a Lincolnshire monsoon followed by a Cambridgeshire sun. Doesn’t get better at 8.7 secs for the roof to drop and/rise.

  8. Thanks all. I’ll get a trickle charger on it and see what happens, and I’ve got some long runs coming up which should prove the low battery hypothesis.

  9. Now the monsoon has finished I can set about a full polish and I can post some pics. I did wonder if I had become far too use to the stop start on my everyday. I’ll leave it in standard and catch up with Dove House.

  10. New Porsche owner and wondered if anyone had noticed there start/stop working or not working. The A with the cross comes up when I’m stopped and held on the brake. I haven’t had a good run in it recently so It might be the battery level but any help would be appreciated.
