    UK Insurance MADNESS

    And finally..... Every time I renew the renewal price has gone up and I do all the comparison sites. I jumped the gun this year by doing comparison sights BEFORE getting renewal price. Where I got mad £8000 Taycan renewal quote. Best was 1200 on Audi and 1500 on Mercedes. Mercedes more...

    UK Insurance MADNESS

    BL1 is officially part of the Golden Treble! I park off road in BL1 in a locked garage. Still get clubbed. Probably be cheaper if I kept my cars parked overnight on the street in Gaza. I hope you can get your cars off the street. Do you have Comfort Access on the Taycan? The villains could...

    UK Insurance MADNESS

    From what I have seen of the insurance market in UK recently it seems you have the ‘Golden Combo’ of Range Rover and Taycan. Good luck Bob!

    UK Insurance MADNESS

    That's the advantage of living in Europe. There is a definite non-spurious reason insurance and repair costs have gone up in UK more than Europe. Thanks to the economic marvel of Brexit. It is a big factor. When my Audi was repaired in 2021, Covid was a factor but the price of parts has...

    UK Insurance MADNESS

    Just got a quote on my new Mercedes EQC I was disappointed as it is only £100 cheaper than my Taycan GTS was last year. I got rid of the Taycan today but decided to see what it would have cost me…. Same comparison website, all the same conditions. The Taycan is worth half what it was a year...

    PCP excess mileage

    Take the lower unless you are SURE you will do the mileage. I am handing back with 2000 excess miles and paying £340. The next block up would have given me 12,000 more miles and cost much more than £15 a month. I had a mate with a big commute who took a 15,000 mile a year deal for 3 years...

    Would you say not having panorama rooftop and ambient light in your base Porsche Taycan is a dealbreaker?

    Just sold my Taycan with glass roof. After DerekS and others experience and more recently the glass roof being shattered by its own boot/trunk I will never buy another Taycan with glass roof. I will accept my kids will be in a darker environment and I can’t carry anything on the roof. Ambient...

    Bye Bye Taycan

    I have heard that analogy! Keeping a Porsche in the garage and driving a banger every day. That is foolish I Didn’t save it for the weekend! It was my only car. Daily driving you can’t go around smashing it. it was driven gently just because there was no option. Still loved being in and...

    Bye Bye Taycan

    The EQC is nice. Just a slightly electrified tarted up GLC. Outside it is an electric SUV boring jelly mould like the Macan but you can’t see it from the inside. The inside is every bit as nice as a Porsche (or Audi) Just different. I generally like Mercedes. This will be my 4th, matching 4...

    Bye Bye Taycan

    My GTS has done 14,000 miles in 2 years and even though they are near the end I still have the original Pirelli chocolate tyres. THAT is proof of some sort!

    Bye Bye Taycan

    Just arranged pick up. Handing back to Porsche GB finance company. I am not trying to depress anyone (particularly in UK). Just the facts. We are all aware. It’s been fun. Especially the 1st Taycan which I sold for a profit. Forum has been fun too. Thanks everybody. The second Taycan has been...

    Car Secutiry Package - worth £269?

    Admiral Multi car Not paying for the Tracker would stop Vodafone pestering you which is good. They are difficult to nick even without a tracker unless you are a dick with keys etc. I would definitely not want Comfort Access with no tracker. A moments lack of concentration and someone could jump...

    Rear tyre wear

    I cannot imagine how they could be as bad, let alone worse. They must last longer. The Pirelli’s are wearing out at the front in 12,000 miles in gentle driving. Perhaps the Good Years are less good on dry track handling but that is irrelevant to most. I can’t imagine the Good Years...

    Rear tyre wear

    This is my report at 13,600 miles. The front passenger tyre was replaced due to side wall damage so has only done about 5000 miles. Fronts have worn worse like most people report here. Also outside corners worse than the inside. Fairly even though? You can see how gently it has been driven...

    Rear tyre wear

    The Pirellis are crap This is an excellent video by the excellent Tyre Reviews - Google it. TYRE REVIEWS - Is Bespoke Always Best? OE vs. Aftermarket Tyres I was a big supporter of OE Tyres Not any more This video explains that OE tyres are always optimised for dry grip because the reviewers...

    Power Steering Plus

    Yes, spot on, I knew this but my post was misleading PSP will NOT stop the lovely Ackermans I was just saying after 20' wheels being lovely without PSP the rude awakening of 21' wheels having to tug on the steering wheel at low speed COMBINED with the Ackermans was horrible. Addition of PSP...
