    Re: Bet they don't get many orders like this..

     Great color for a Boxster (or a 911) and it looks great with the yellow calipers.

    DaveGordon:

     I'm picking it up around lunchtime on the 25th, close to Gatwick airport, then driving along the M4 towards Folkestone on the morning of the 27th..  Would be cool to meet up with anyone interested - where's Chapelgate?

    Hi Dave Smiley
    Would indeed be good to meet up! Can't make Friday 25th but Sunday 27th could be OK! Smiley

    Chapelgate was the original name for the Porsche dealer in Ferndown, near Bournemouth, (which became Porsche Centre Bournemouth to comply with the Porsche corporate image and went downhill dramatically  following the sale by an enthusiastic Brian Deeks, whose attention to detail and customer service was impeccable,  to Inchcape Group, more used to selling Renault than Porsche) where Rich C bought his first two Boxsters. We bought our two Boxsters and the Cayman there.

    If it wasn't for the greater distance and the discount we negotiated with Bournemouth I would have bought the Cayman from Porsche Mid Sussex, where you've got your car. There  reputation is first class. Kinrara who had the severe misfortune to buy his 997 turbo from Porsche GB owned shambles in Guildford now goes to Mid Sussex and has been very impressed with their level of service. We will probably get the Cayman serviced there when the time comes. Bit too far to come from Switzerland for maintenance though!

    When we first joined Rennteam we used to meet up regularly with other enthusiasts such as charlesL,  ente, erpel, RichC, wtsnet and others although sadly we don't get together as regularly as we used to. Smiley

     Be good if some of the old brigade could meet up with you on 27th? Any takers? Smiley

    Re: Bet they don't get many orders like this..

     Thanks again for the nice comments..

    @Gnil - mailed the dealer and he reckons that plate mounting is only attached with the two centre bolts, so I think it'll be fine with the small Swiss plate.

    why the 10 day wait, it can't take that long for PDI and registration can it?

    There's still a little paperwork outstanding, but mostly because I booked the flights etc early to save a bit of money.  Not to worry - a week tomorrow :-)

    The 27th could work, but I won't have too long - I'm booked on the 12:50 Eurotunnel..

    Re: Bet they don't get many orders like this..

     I'll be meeting with DC on Friday for a late pub lunch at the Seven Stars Inn near Stroud, Petersfield in order to:

    a) meet and have some nice English pub food

    b) see if DC can steal my brakes without me noticing

    If anyone else would like to join, feel free - would be good to meet a UK RT'er or two...

    My pit stop crew are bringing some yellow paint for your steel brake calipers so they match my yellow PCCB ones......Smiley

    Look forward to seeing you there - and any other Rennteamers that can make it - Smiley - call me when you are leaving Burgess Hill so I can judge my ETA at the Seven Stars Smiley According to the navigation it's only about 35 minutes from Portsmouth up the A3.

    Anyway, enjoy..... might be in Zurich on business in a few weeks so will keep an eye out for it
