  1. Which is also a shitbox. Regretfully, I've spent too much time in both.
  2. But is a shitbox.
  3. For sale by someone else though IIRC. Recognise the plate. Those pics put me off a bit - at least use a flash!
  4. 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!
  5. The M10 was the basis for the old F1 engines. I reckon there's some options there
  6. I'm yet to see evidence that it can. It's not that big a deal, just a nice-to-have.
  7. Just finished would be nice. I'm happy with the M5 as it is, although cruise control would be a nice addition.
  8. 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.
  9. 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).
  10. 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
  11. 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.
  12. Not without spacers, no.
  13. Get in touch with Tims, he'll have something
  14. 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...
