Had the four year service done today. New plugs, filters and IPD plenum, really woke up my car. An ear to ear grin. The air filters were very dirty and the plugs showed signs of equal wear and coloration. Also, should have my new Carrera Classics from Suncoast by Monday. The previous owner lived in a rough area of the North Bay and the original Classics took a beating. I also replaced both headers to do away with a dented pipe. And replaced the twin tips, that were tar burnt pretty bad, with a pair of stock used tips from a dealer back east for $200. They're in like new condition. I sent back the X51 Kit because of the mileage ($$$) restrictions. Bearings and such needed to be replaced if engine had over 25,000 miles. That was disappointing.

Next. A really good wax job this weekend and conditioning the leather.

Stuffed the symposer full of foam to get rid of the PSE howl/drone. Haven't driven it yet to check but looking forward to it tomorrow.

Worked my wheels over: ONR, Tarminator, clay, Opti GlossCoat -- about 1.5 hrs per and about $9 in materials per wheel. I'm surprised how many chips in the wheels there are after just 8k miles, geesh. Getting out for a ride today, first since mid-October. Bam!

Bought weather tech floor mats and installed my Proclip phone mount. Clear LED side markers on their way also! Hope for an easy install with those. Have driven it everyday I could lately with the mild winter we are having!

I wonder if I'm going to win 'most unusual present'...

Have had my driver's seat stuffed with memory foam to provide more lumbar support and cushioning behind the knees. I have had a fair few back problems and the 4-way sports plus seats I have left me aching after long journeys and just never felt quite supportive enough.

I went up to Autotrim in Manchester and spent an hour driving around with different numbers of foam slabs in different places. Once I settled on a configuration they rebuilt the seat for me. I'll post some photos tomorrow if it's dry enough to put the top down, but Autotrim's workmanship was first rate. The seat looks like it came 'enhanced' from the factory - they cut and stitched in new bits of alcantara and everything.

Anyway, it now feels unbelievably good. Kind of like sitting on a very supportive cloud, or like the car is giving me a hug each time I get in it. Which is nice. I really do recommend Autotrim for anyone in the UK. I made a 300-mile round trip to see them (I know poor me, right?) and it was totally worth it. They do all kinds of interior repairs and replacements and also offered to sell me the yellow seat belts I wanted for way less than Porsche charge (sadly, those had already arrived at the dealer).

I do hope this RTT functionality via the phone will be introduced in the US
