Those AP brakes should see you right. BTW is there any hint of...

I bought a couple of kits with Dupli-Color brake caliper ceramic paint in them the last time I was in America on the recommendation of a friend. I think you can get it in Europe.

I'm afraid it's been a long while since my son was a young urchin but we did well in Madeira back in the day - just a question of finding the right hotel. There are many.

We also stayed at a hotel...

I leave the Panamera to its own devices 99% of the time but if I'm preparing to overtake I might paddle down rather than kick down. Ditto the SLK. Both used on main roads and motorways more often...

I had been living with the damage (as you can divine by the fact that snow chains caused the damage:)) and my wife hasn't even noticed the damage.

Wow! An example of how doing a restoration properly rewards for years. So glad to see a classic being used well!

An extra sentimental thing for me, too. My late father spent much of 1969-70 (IIRC)...

Yes, RHD and I think a slightly wider Series 3 (V12 originally) car which was retro'd to Series 1.

Thanks aerodynamic18,

Well, the Gaz coilovers are dial-able which might help a bit but the engine management will be largely on-off and fast-slow:driver: and, if I'm lucky, put the fans on:devil:
