AT car has PSE but no sprts chrono pack. Glasgow car has Sport chrono and no PSE.
Apologies, rum was involved. The sport button is easily retrofitted, PSE not cheap.

IIRC, the Perth car was originally at Wolverhampton and has been up for most of this year, if not more...

Off to Angouleme in France today for the annual Circuit Des Remparts race....always a cracking weekend with a fab drive there and back driving

Got the R all ready, washed (then rained), loaded and ready to set off shortly.

Having only covered about 500 miles since I got it, I'm really looking forward to stretching her legs en route!

Obligatory photos obvs!

Mr V.... Your R is looking superb.

I am equally enamoured of mine! I discover more every time I drive it.

Enjoy Circuit Des Remparts... I'm off to Goodwood in mine tomorrow. A cross-country 200 mile 'round trip... looking forward to it.

Have had plates made online and delivered for years with no post code, incorrect spacing etc and never once had a problem.

I always use https://www.platesforcars.co.uk/designer.php?gclid...

It does however depend on where you take the car, my local just likes me bringing
my sports cars in so probably gives me some leeway.. biggrin
Surely this is illegal? I get mine from number plates from these guys... but they insist that without the BS mark etc then they aren't road legal? also say that you would fail your MOT

Silver non bucket seat (all other desirable options to be fair) CR at Williams Crawford sold. Within days of advert. 24k miles. 42 grand.
So why does that sell and other better spec cars stick for months ?
Maybe buckets are not what people want?

Why has the black one at Perth not sold?
Surely they'd take an offer on it ?
Its been on sale for half the year !!!

My guess is what with the end of the world looming (Brexit uncertainty)

Many folk are sitting on their hands for the time being and the market will pick up as soon as someone in Westminster actually makes a decision one way or other. The lighter evenings are well past us now and i guess many folk are waiting for the new year, new spring and hopefully new start for our country.

Once all that nonsense is out of the way we can get on with our lives and continue to enjoy our passion for cars as we did before smile

Either that or the Cayman R really isn't all its cracked up to be wink

Just needs to be right buyer right time I think. My poor cars sat in the garage for a couple of weeks now as I need to put some miles on this ahead of Spa as the old mans away.

First world problems and all.





Whilst this is no doubt a more impressive car, it isnt £60k better which shows just how good the little Cayman is.

I had a white one for sale with everything (32k miles and it had a year op warranty) apart from buckets could not shift it privately. Trade bids.32-35k. Had A few bids privately with folks trying low ball. I traded for a Ferrari 430 and got a little bit more than 35k. It went to Opc Bolton who had it for sale at 42 k, probably sold for 40k, was on for about 9 weeks

Had a mate who went to see it at Bolton and they put new front tyres on, was not due a service for another year. I had a g techniq ceramic coat on it. paint was corrected and kept immaculate. However somebody had washed the car during prep and heavily swirled on display

Out in Angouleme, had a fab day yesterday sampling the local roads in the forests near Brantome with a mate in his 911.

It’s the first time I’ve really pressed on in the car since I bought it....and it’s absolutely effin brilliant!

The power delivery is perfect, the chassis copes with everything thrown at it, braking is powerful and linear. Perfect day out.

Back in Angouleme, we spotted this:

Probably not as hopeful as you might first think.
French chap I was chatting to on Instagram said how expensive the CR is in Europe and when he was after one, ended up buying a BMW 1M and got himself a Lotus Elise with the change vs the price of a Cayman R.

This come about as the 1M was also on my shortlist when I got my R as they were both similar money £40/£45k
