Apparently living life at 4k rpm and above is part of that ...along with the disdain some folks have for less than 6 cylinders and the associated sound.

    It`s quite an impressive package, albeit only about 350 miles in. The PDK is nutty fun without the chore of a clutch and even with the 20mm lower X73 Sport Suspension it rides nice enough and hasnt scraped...yet.

    How they carve out that much interior space in a small package is equally impressive. FAR more comfortable for 2 people than the Corvette.

    In the garage, seems to have a smaller footprint than her 2016 Civic. Given how this 981 kinda fell into our laps outta left-field, pretty pleased. Maybe that`ll change going forward if it ends up being troublesome mechanically but for a small, nimble and acceptably powerful car that seems to be a better all around useable car than the Vette, maybe got lucky with this one.

    And I`ll probably never approach anything beyond being able to use more than 70% of this things capabilities. But I`ll sure have fun trying.

    Wheel center caps with colored Porsche Crest
    Seat ventilation
    Porsche Dynamic Light System
    Sport Chrono Package i.c.w. PCM
    Power Steering Plus

    Premium Package (Sport Seats, 14-way)
    Infotainment Package with BOSE Surround Sound System
    X73 Sport Suspension
    Center console trim painted
    Definitely not a stripper, but is close to how I would option a Cayman S, I would only change the interior color for one of the tan options, switch the 20`s out for the 19`s, and choose PASM so that I could upgrade the controller to a better unit.

    Yeah, I found it to be a somewhat unique cfg...lacking PASM. Such is life with pre-owned vehicles. Actually havent bought a used car in 25 years, prefer new despite the financial aspects of depreciation.

    If new woulda gone with the interior seating `plus` package or stand alone option for Entry & Drive to get push button start/keyless entry and also woulda gone with the PASM w 10mm drop.

    Either way, no regrets. Was planning on dealing with interior items today but will probably end up just driving it instead cuz it`s just so darn fun to motor around in.

    Odd that while they have offered Apple CarPlay for a while, I believe Android Auto is still not supported in new models.

    I wouldn`t worry too much about it, all these two services provide is taking our distraction from lower in the car to closer to the road; minimize the time we take our eyes off the road. The only true way to regain the lost attention is to put the phone away completely.

    I like Android Auto primarily for piping Waze navigation to the vehicle screen during longer trips, pretty much the only time I use it. The Cayman has factory Nav so kinda a moot point. To be honest, not sure what else Android Auto does besides that

    Interesting though...guess Porsche did a study (so they say, who ever `they` are) and found most of their buyers are iPhone folks?

    What did you do detailing wise today?

    Finally worked on my 4 or 5 waxed trim areas. I thought it would be much harder, so I put it off.
    To my surprise McKee`s 37 made very short work of it.
    Practically melted off the wax smears...lovin` it !!







    This last one I did hit once more and it was gone.

    Re: What did you do detailing wise today?

    Did an autumn cleaning on the Ford Focus interior both yesterday and today. With my injuries in the spine this is about how worse I gets on the pain levels. But in away I enjoying to do the interior as when you are done and all is clean and fresh smell of it. It feeling good when you take a sit in it. Must give my cleaner a mention. Ultima Interior Schampo Gel is an awesome interior cleaner in every way you can think of exept 1. It`s not a concentrate and a tick on the expensive side cause of it. When you maintain your own vehicals it`s not so bad but if I where to do detailing for a living I would look for a concentrate in bulk. Every material but the useally you need a special cleaner for like alcantra. Otherwise works really great on a car like this. And can not place the smell but it`s some leather scent in it and something else. It wears off after a week or so.

    I have a little left to tomorrow. The Ultima Interior Guard Plus is going to be applyied and the windows is also left. And man the carpet is of a thick and plush material. This makes it to take a lot of time to vacuum them. The more you brush while you vacuum the amount of the finest sand keeps coming up from it. Know that I have neglected this a little and should vacuum it more often. The positive is that it hides the sand and smaller dirt very well LOL. I`m in a badly need of a great extractor as both the cars I maintain has fabric seats. And the dry/wet vacuum is broken so maybe it`s time to get an extractor instead. Will see if I can find a good deal on one that can be used both in the cars and in the household.

    This car have been very neglected in some ways before my mom and stepfather bought this for little over 4 years ago. I have taken care of it for almost 3 years now. And have only tried to stop the things that has been damage through neglected care by the previous owner. You work with you have.

    After a thorough cleaning with Ultima Interior Schampo Gel.



    Next weekend if the weather cooperate with me it`s time for the Kia cee`d SW interior cleaning. Also a wash of both the cars is needed too LOL.

    Re: What did you do detailing wise today?

    Today it was time for the windshield to be deep cleaned and Aquapel applyied on it. A couple of days ago I tried glass polishing with Carpro CeriGlass and their Rayon Glass Polishing Pads on the back window in the hatch. Something you often here in Sweden on gas stations. Is that you have access to paper on rolls and you can imagine what kind of bright ideas many gets with this. Some can be wiping down their paints with it. Often by dripping dripping it wet in the squeeqe bucket that is tap water and some windshield fluid in it. On this car before my stepfather bought it they must have used dry paper sheets and cleaned up the back window with it. And since we have a lot of gravel roads here and it`s a hatchback. You get a lot of gravel dust on the back window. The design it self where a lot of this lands on the wiper blade and you don`t are able to get it wet with at least some windshield fluid on it before it starts to wipe the window clean. Makes a disaster on the wiper blade trail. Combo that with deep scratches in the surrounding glass and that`s what I dealed with. Was trying to get just a little improvement on the scratches but glass is hard and a 3" mini polisher with a 12mm throw is not much and would need a rotary polisher and a lot of more time polishing it. Some improvement on the shallow wiper blade trail was achieved but not more than that. Then I applyied the Aquapel on it and on the front side windows with one Aquapel.

    So today and a windshield in better condition I just wanted to get it deep cleaned. Cleaned with glass cleaner and then clayed with synthetic clay block and Sonax Glass Cleaner as the clay lube. Polished with Carpro CeriGlass and their Rayon Glass Polishing Pads. And preped with Angelwax Vision glass cleaner. Applyied the Aquapel on it and done. Was colder today too so the the heater setting on max on the windshield and the electric windshield heater on too. It went fine today too and had the heater on afterwards for some time to get a little more for it to cure faster.

    It seems to be coming some raining the next days so will be interesting to see if it was a success or not the application of the Aquapel. Couldn`t resist to be doing some beading and sheeting testing on the hatch window. Seems to work great and I used a little fine mist spray bottle with destilled water in it. The beading got build up nicely and pretty fast gather it together big enough to sheet off the glass great.

    Here`s an action picture from the spraying on the water. Think it`s pretty good as it has an lower angle than you think the hatch window.



    Now I just need to be finding the time to do my own car LOL. And needs to be protecting them both for the winter and the time runs fast as useally sadly.

    Thanks for reading.
