Took my 11 yr old son out for a drive just now. The little yelps and wows are what it's all about!

I think he enjoyed it too.

You’ve fully used a set of tyres in 3 months? What?

yeah and 1.5k miles... i suspect a bad geo... furious will insist on very negative camber next time!
the same set (ps4s) lasted 8months and few thousands miles.

Quick question about the sports suspension option on the 981 GTS.

I thought it was a purely mechanical set up, but a dealer who has one for sale tells me there is still an element of PASM, but it is just not adjustable.

Is this correct?

I don’t believe that’s the case; it is a relatively stiff mechanical set up, non-PASM.by definition.

Purely mechanical, lightweight option.

It drives amazingly, it sits lower to the ground and change the look of the entire car/package.

Car is almost flat on bends.

That's what I thought, I'll email him back and see what he says.

How firm is the ride on normal UK roads, a bit too harsh, or still acceptable?

All subjective I know, just looking for an opinion from someone that's driven or owned one.

It's quite firm but depends if you want something really focused or not. If you live near areas with speed bumps and ramps it can get tricky. PASM is a good compromise and was well judged on the 981.

X73 ride is amazingly good for road use. ground clearance at the front is not great; spoiler lip will catch on sharp/steep sleeping policeman and occasionally on dips in the road. but happy to have it on my BGTS.

Owned and driven a lot, but only for pleasure.

Would you get it as daily? On towns? Then a bit risky. Otherwise is the best option you can get.

Don't get me wrong, never scraped the actual bumper even in London piccadilly or small town with big ramps/bumps, but at least in few occasions slightly scraped the dams (plastic aero bits under the bumper), nothing worrying at all, less than the noise they make!

Consider is a nice touch on the car, look is improved, also when driving, car sits lower and it's an other experience imho having driven the PASM as well.

Hi all, I have Turbo alloys fitted to my CGTS and want them repainted gloss black and then repolished, at the moment the painted areas are grey and I think the wheel refresh with colour change will suit the car with its GTS exterior gloss paint.
Any ideas can this be done?
Thanks
