Hi guys

After a couple of years in the wilderness, I'm back in a Porsche!
This time, I have a cayman S. Please see my post on the boxster/cayman forum

http://911uk.com/viewtopic.php?p=1458804#1458804

Just wanted to say hi, I missed you this!

Haha, thanks 77szymon, love being back in the fold.

I actually said "I can't believe how agile and nimble it feels compared to my old C4S" which doesn't mean it's better than the C4S (which I also loved BTW!). However, I think most folk will agree a Cayman S is one of the most agile cars around, period!

Thanks Mark, good to be back!

I think I sold my C4S in Jan 2018, but feels soooo much longer.

Anyway, happy days are here again!

Update - Just phoned Grant at Hartech. It was their own internal rebuild, so not for a customer as such.

“The engine has been re-built and has all new Nikasil plated aluminium alloy cylinders, piston rings, crank shaft bearings, timing chains & chain guide set, flywheel & oil/air separator. The cylinder heads have had basic overhauls.”

He said he couldn't tell me more but rest assured, it was the full treatment, inc LLT!

Thanks Luddite.
Yes, well loaded with PSM, PASM, Sports Crono, ASK sound etc. For a 13yr old car, it's pretty much spotless without a single bump.
Very pleased.
