Hi all, New ownership week here.
Just had a day of poking around really, you know trying to find out thing like "how do you set up the satnav" and "how does this oil check work". Oh did put a sim in and get the phone set up and spend an hour reading the docs that came with the car. I have a Gen1 on 2009 plate so will look at adding DRL's as a first job, not needed but a way of familiarising myself with things in general (and I can't find anything else that needs doing). So far I must say I have been impressed with the refined ride and general build quality. I tried counting and I think this is around car number sixty that I have owned but hey I am coming up to 73 this year.

Yes another new Cayman owner also, took it along to Bristol OPC for a full check up, and I knew it was due a service when I bought the car, helped with the price negotiations. All good, and happy with the car so far.... but I will be keeping the 968. .

Hardwired my dashcam today - easy job using the nextbase kit, took power from fuseway C1 (987.2 2.9 PDK) (couldn't find any others that were switched) it was a result since that fuseway was unused (its for the 4WD control module for the 997T apparently) - all hidden away - only visible cable is a short run from top of dash to bottom of windscreen drivers side - along the join with the a pillar.

Almost happy with the additional bits now - have iPhone sorted for bracket, handsfree, and music through PCM and now the dash cam - just need to see if I can find an acceptable (fiddle and aesthetics factor) to the slow charging of the phone from the universal media interface - I have some ideas there - but need to hunt down suitable "kit"

Phone isn't powered from ciggy lighter - power for phone comes from the USB port in the universal media interface in the cubby hole - the Porsche Y cable plugs in there and the "iPod" port - thats where the slow charge comes from - that port is USB 2 spec - 0.5A

My "long term plan" is to replace the transformer for the hard wired dashcam with a dual outlet one - so from one "switched power" connection I can run the dashcam and put decent (1A plus) into the USB part of the Y cable - but I need to find a transformer that is not at its limits with 1.5A camera and 1A phone and all the ones I have found so far max at 2.5A - ideally would want one that could handle 5 - and then there's plenty for peaks etc.

What I have works - it's just not quite how I want it (and if the phone needs a boost - I do have a 2.5A usb ciggy adapter - but that means cables and things on show and in the way a bit)

Nothing too glamorous, just the rear discs and pads, along with the sensors & the (very expensive) shims as they were completely toasted. The rears take way more punishment than you would expect.
