  1. Brand new VAC oil filter adaptor plate, still sealed. It's one of ::these:: and is yours for £100 posted. It cost a fair chunk more once I'd had it shipped to the UK and paid customs! Allows you to run a remote oil filter for easy servicing and braided lines. I accidentally bought two, and I've only got a use for one!
  2. The M10 was the basis for the old F1 engines. I reckon there's some options there
  3. I'm yet to see evidence that it can. It's not that big a deal, just a nice-to-have.
  4. Just finished would be nice. I'm happy with the M5 as it is, although cruise control would be a nice addition.
  5. It would have to be the correct spec for the car. Context: Porsche mandate the fitment of 'N' spec tyres to fulfil your warranty obligations. If the dealer sold you a policy that replaced tyres with non-conforming spec ones, they'd be in a right old pickle.
  6. No, they view a tyre as a tyre. You can't claim for new ones just through wear, it's only to replace non-repairable damaged tyres, and the policy will limit the number you can claim per year (in my case two).
  7. Fancy one to do yourself? I've got a sub-100k mile Eta that could be immaculate for less than your budget all-in. Factory heated seats too
  8. I bought tyre insurance. The policy allowed for two tyres per year from memory, and the salesman's advice was that each year "accidentally" get a couple of nails stuck in a non-repairable part of a pair of tyres. Needless to say, I completely forgot all about it and have never claimed.
  9. Not without spacers, no.
  10. Get in touch with Tims, he'll have something
  11. I am sorted, thanks. In fact, I ended up buying a couple of individual wheels of eBay before a set of 5 came up, so if anyone wants one with a tyre and one without...
  12. You don't need to have the alignment done just because of a damper change, but if it hasn't been done recently (and you're not doing more tinkering) then worth getting it done, yes.
  13. Which browser are you using?
  14. Cheers Steve. Still a couple more bugs to iron out but we're getting there.
