Re: Petrol S - resonance on acceleration

I picked up my new petrol S today and noticed it within 5 minutes of driving from the dealers. Last time I had a noise like this was on a 1998 BMW 520i. After a year or revisiting the dealer 6 or 7 times the fault was identified as air con pipes oscillating at certain engine speeds. The fix was to ...

Re: New PTS Turbo PP

Looks lovely. I wouldn't mind driving one of them to see how much more capable they are over a GTS and if the GTS is still the "sweet spot". Enjoy

Re: Macan GTS - 2000 miles - Reflections

alxgb - Good write up and some recognisable references. You'll love the car in Germany. The ability to use its power legally to accelerate, and keep accelerating to well over 250kmh is astonishing. Besides, it is the most comfortable mile muncher I have ever had the pleasure of owning. Enjoy the trip

Re: Sunday 3 June 2018 - Simply Porsche at Beaulieu Motor Museum

It clashes with Goodwood's Supercar Sunday. Anyone else going there too?

Re: SOLD MY GTS

Steve - Well that's a surprise. We took delivery around the same time and are swapping again. The whole Porsche experience is massively addictive. An 18% depreciation is also pretty palatable (to me) and I'd be happy with that result come time to sell later this year. Enjoy the next wait and purchas...

Re: Porsche order books temporarily closed amid WLTP changes

I'm no techy but engines have continued to develop (at pace) since the introduction of the catalytic converter in the late 80s and early 90s. No-one seems to be complaining now on being down on power etc. Could it be that the new WLTP will allow the more creative (engineering minded manufacturers) ...

Tesla model 3 - ugly or lovely? :roll:

The only EV that has good design so far is the Jag iPace IMHO. Would I buy one though - no!
Nah - Scalectrix EV vehicles are the nuts

Re: Cabin Ventilation Fan Noise

Keep as many vents open as possible, fast air is intrinsically noisy. I keep it on auto and the default speed for cooling is high but only ran for 20 seconds yesterday. +1 - Especially the ones for the back seats. I have found that when you open those wide most of the wind noise disappears - as wil...
