    What a difference a weight makes....

    Whilst my car was in lat week for various bits and bobs I asked them to balance the wheels. I hadn't had the classic shakes at 60mphish but it just didn't quite feel 'right'.

    Well, Wow, it's like a whole new car. The ride has improved vastly. The car hadn't thrown any weights as far as I could see, but re-doing them was a very worth while expense, the 19s must be very suseptable to imbalance. I now plan to treat the car to this process every 3-4 months - money well spent.

    How'd the other stuff go Rich? They fix the resonance?

    Seemed fine when we went for a blat yesterday, plus the winddeflector no longer rattles - hoorah!

    Down side - they didn't complete all the refurb on the kerbed wheel, although they did it for free as they'd found a 'foreign body' under the paint elsewhere on the wheel - and it looks like they've chipped the paint on the wheel when they were taking the bolts in/out! So awaiting a call as they're going to find someone who can come to me rather than another 110 mile round trip.

    but soory, going to have to withdraw my enthusiastic support for Porsche Bournemouth - missed airbag light at PDI, 3 further times the car has been in for relatively minor stuff, and 3 times it's come back with either it not fixed or a half hearted effort
