Introducing Carla Cayman

Recommended Posts

Tyres are consumables, so don’t really count when I do my man maths. I had to drop similar right after purchase. Looks like you’re having fun and the car looks mint, which is what it’s all about. 👍

Would you say that rims and tyres as consumables and not forgetting exaust 🤔

I cant quite stretch my definition to include rims and exhausts, but each to their own!

Wow.....you got a good deal on your insurance

WINNING 👍

 

That was on top of my Clio insurance. Full year was quoted at £447. Oh and it includes extended car hire cover and a £15 admin charge for changing policy mid year.

Just been out this morning for a 95 mile drive around Surrey.

 

Good points... she sticks like glue to the road. So rapid too. That PDK gearbox is something special. PASM is awesome too, can really feel it all tighten up and feel more planted. The exhaust is amazing, don't see why I'd want to change it tbh.

 

Bad points... The sat nav is so out of date. Can't wait for Android auto mod on Wednesday morning.

Today I got the Android auto module added. This kit was supplied by NMautomotive and fitted by Sextons London. When I got there, I also asked about installation of a rear view camera which they did at the same time.

 

At first the Android auto install was a great idea. When finished, he showed it to me and all was great. Then came the trip back home. I was playing music from my Spotify account, and it sounded way off. Started thinking that I'd wasted my money as sound was truly atrocious. Luckily I then found the settings for sound, and for some reason he'd played around with the equaliser. Reset it to default and had decent sounding music again 🥳

Thought we'd pop in on our way to Abingdon for today. Staying in a hotel for the night. My mates bought me a Supercar experience for my 40th and I bought the same thing for my dad for father's Day. We're both driving a Ferrari 458, California, Porsche GT3 RS, and McLaren 720s.

 

He test drove the 296gtb and F8 tributo. F8 it is 😍

Right so I'm an idiot 🤦🏽‍♂️...

Red seat belt arrived today and there's only 1. I thought that it came in pairs. Apparently not. So that means it's £400 for just one 😭

 

Now do I return it, or just man up and buy the other one for another £400 🤷🏽‍♂️

Thanks for the positive comments 🤣. They can be used for left or right so I can't mess that one up.

This weekend's additions...

 

Yesterday got the windows tinted.

 

Today gave Carla a quick clean and fitted some side vent grills and two front grills. Couldn't fit the centre one as it's too cold for the 3m tape to stick properly. Needs to be 18°c or higher.

Seatbelt upgrade or colour change service. Could try that. If you dont want the hassle then can just buy

 

Airbag Team Ltd, Rotherham 

 

Found these guys on Ebay. They offer day service but theyre in Rotherham. You could get any used Cayman belts and find a similar company that does upgrades.

 

Alternatively

Did you return the previous belt?

So I took a trip to Parr Porsche this morning to get my costly Guards red seatbelts installed

Whilst there they had a lovely array of cars there.

I happened to park next to the Blue GT4 and after Stutopia trying to convince me that the ducktail looks good I had to compare as I could see it in person.

It does look lovely but it's a slippery slope imo if I got it, as it does look nicer but changes the look of the car. So I'd need to get a more aggressive front bumper too to match. Then the rear diffuser, and where does it all end??? Oh why do they make these cars so pretty and tempting 😭
