Bedford GT booked for next Sat. Nice easy place to get used to the car. Loving it so far. However must remember the brakes are nowhere near the GT3s!
Agree. After owning GT3, GT4, 911GTS each having PCCBs I'm beginning to understand why there's so much discussion of the R's brakes on this thread.

I run the car at Bedford quite often, and have found the following brake setup very effective, (zero fade, 20 min stints) and the car will almost stand on its nose under braking.

Stainless steel lines all round.
RBF 660 fluid.
Front - Sebro high carbon front disks with DS2500 pads.
Rear - Standard disk with DS1.11 pads.

I've managed to find what I think is the correct part number. Can anyone verify 997-803-183-10 + 997-803-183-11

Thanks dude, i have Castrol SRF and Endless front pads and OEM discs on it as I got it. I full expect the standard discs to st themselves but thats fine as they need to die before Spa anyway.

Ive got 997 GT3 ducts and the master cylinder to go on at Parr in April so may chuck some discs on then as well. Im speaking to Alcon to see if they can do me a version of my GT3 discs that will work with a caliper spacer - up to 350mm i think it is.

The old mans got surface transforms on his 997 Clubbie to to be honest most things feel ste compared to those LOL

30k for a damaged repaired cayman R which has been paid out by an insurance company, I wouldn’t call that a bargain but it’s certainly usable as it will never be valuable due to previously classed as an insurance loss.

I sold a m4 compition pack recently which a family member had damaged, I couldn’t even believe someone wanted to put it back on the road!

It really winds me up when people misrepresent cars.

The ad says 16k miles yet the photos show 17k, it claims leather dash when it's plastic and cruise conntrol fitted when it isn't.

Given all that, I'd be a bit sceptical that all it needed was a windscreen and wing!

Says its only had a wing and a screen...

Surely the insurance complany wouldnt write off a £45k car for a wing and a window????

Is it not the same car that's been on this thread before? It had a missing mirror, damaged door and wing, A-pillar and maybe some rear quarter damage too IIRC. If so, no, it wasn't just a wing and a windscreen. Or should that be "window screen". Whatever they are.

Let’s not kid ourselves, insurance companies write cars off due to the amount of damage the car has suffered.

The cars future value and audience will be affected massively due to a it being a insurance write off.

A wing and a windscreen would not write off a cayman r!

A wing, A Pilar (Structual damage causing the windscreen to crack), cill and door would.

Surely the owner would be better listing photos of the damage suffered, that way people know what they are buying and can offer accordingly.

Yup, that one has been on a few times.

This is the original add with the damage shown in pictures. He wanted £35K without the damage repaired.....

Bit more than a wing & screen then.

Front wheel looks like it has a load of positive camber which would suggest thats had a clump and done some suspension damage. Rear qtr and roof structure had a nice clump too.

Interesting damage, wonder what/how was hit in order to damage it that way?

Looks to me as though the car was stationary when damaged.

Maybe a HGV reversed into it?
