Re: Should I buy a Boxster 718 GTS?

When I had my 981 CS (4 years), I was never blown away with the 718's, once I got over that extra rush of power, which only really manifested itself (to me at least) when rolling along past 40/50 mph. That said, I'm 2 years into a diesel Macan and I'm sure a drive of a 718S now would blow my socks o...

Re: New SD owner

Looks a beauty, very similar to mine, but with all the missing bits I now wish mine had, PSE, light pack, auto-dim mirrors, electric towbar.

Re: Vehicles in your garage!

Went and camped back in the '90s to a 24hr m/c race. Next morning the circuit was open and we rode around 'race stylee'. Exiting Pouhon, I was faced with a LR Defender coming the other way - it hadn't registered that the circuit was open in both directions!

Cleared the hangover pretty sharpish!

Re: Macan SD replacement - where next?

Must admit, owning both a Q5 and a Macan, the lack of rear legroom in the Macan is a bit of a let down. Initially went to look to buy a Cayenne after having a loaner when the Cayman was in, but got seduced by this brand new SD sat in the showroom which was the same price as the used Cayenne.

Re: SPORT CHRONO OR NOT

I'm in the 'it's a waste of time in an SUV' camp. Sport is enough of a performance upgrade in my SD, whereas the Sport+ feels, well a bit silly. All revs/noise to no great effect.

Re: Niggles at 2 moths

I've had comments from pals (JLR workers as it happens), that my boot release sounds broken! It's much louder than our Q5 admittedly.

Re: Top Gear

Must admit, saw it was on and for the first time thought about the presenters and decided no, I won't waste my time with it. It's an ex-show, dead, deceased, bereft of life, shuffled off from this mortal coil....... ;)

Re: Four days in........

As a motorcyclist, I just assume everyone else on the road is an incompetent dickhead and is out to kill me.

It instills a degree of caution that "seems" to work? - touchwood of course!!

Re: Crazy Main Dealer Trade in offers !

I keep an eye on OPC values, knock £7k off and use that as a weather vane for the value of my car. Currently looking like £40k for a £65k new, 21 month old, 13k miler (SD). That assumes that the current 'dieselaphobia' isn't adding extra grief? So, at £1,200 pcm, this is currently the worst depreci...
