Well that's another MOT passed. Just over 12000 miles this year so now on 109K all but a few miles.
Fitted new air filters & a pollen filter yesterday, gave it a scan as well which was clear.
OPC changed oil & filter plus axle oils & transmission oils in July for the Le Mans Classic trip. So looking at the schedule these filters were all that was left.
New Dunlop Winter Sport 5 winters tyres fitted last week so already for winter & whatever it brings. Vredestein Vorti summers that came off were on 5-6mm so good for another couple of years. They wear well & grip fantastically especially in the rain.

Interesting that the tyres I fitted are rated B for wet weather grip, the N rated Dunlop winters are C.... hmmm.

Good news, it was interesting at the NEC the number of members now running a Cayenne as a daily driver.

Yes Sean surprised how many people are chopping sports cars for Cayennes.
Glad to here.

I got 20 on my trip to NEC, usually around 15 around town, mostly very short trips.
The removal of secondary cats hasn't helped as it sounds better now :lol:
