Re: Finance options

Clive, I had "company" cars all my working life and during the last 20 years these were my choice premium makes. I had a succession of brand new BMWs and Mercedes, each one on a 3 year contract.

Re: Macan tyres

Re: Macan tyres

Just checked ATS Euromaster [Michelin owned tyre distributor] and I see that a set of 4 x Michelin Latitude Tour HP in Porsche approved NO tyres in your sizes comes out at £575.96 fully fitted.

Re: Dozens of annoying things about...

Regarding the original poster's "1. All the switches surrounding the gear lever need to be re-positioned to suit a right-hand drive vehicle.
