    My Guards Red Cayman S

    The cloud wind and rain cleared for a brief spell so I grabbed my camera and at long last managed to get a few shots of my Cayman S...

    Love those wheels.

    There is something about the guards red. It is awesome. Red and Black compliment each other so well. A black Cayman was my second choice and her first.We need a new thread, The Red & The Black. get a collection of red and black Caymans and Boxters.

    Car looks great!!

    Even when guards red is dirty (like mine is, thanks to the smallest amount of rain and sand/dust) it looks great.

    Re: My Guards Red Cayman S

    I miss my '06 GR CS which was traded in on a Carrera White one in November. Neighbors and friends could not believe I let the GR go!

    I keep searching the forums to see if anyone posts a recent purchase of an
    '06 GR CS. The small ebay dealer of exclusive cars in West Chester, PA posted that my GR CS was sold in December but he might have sent it to an auction? I have the privacy curtain for the trunk and would like to get it to the new owner!

    Guy's,

    I'am sorry for the late reply to all your kind words about my CS but I've been extremely busy the past weeks......I've a lot of reading to catch-up on the forum too.

    The previous owner must have read my mind when he spec'd the car new those are my favorite wheels available for the Cayman, they are dead easy to keep clean too the spokes are wide enough apart to get a sponge into the back of the wheel.

    Flat plain red is my favorite colour...this is my 11th red car (red cars are faster by the way) so when I went looking for a CS it had to be Guards Red.

    Thanks...I had to get a red one to match the paint, its probably a bit flash but I like it.

    Mechanically the car will remain stock as its under Porsche's warranty so no tinkering, I'am more than happy with how it goes and drives.

    One mod I will having done though is painting the side air intakes black the same as the CR's, does anyone know if the CR intakes are gloss black or matt.

    One other thing I'd like to do at some point is get one of these steering wheels......its stunning.





    Happy driving everyone...

    Yes, that would be great if you got one those steering wheels on the correct side!

    The vents and mirrors are gloss black. Add a set of stripes for about $100 and you've got yourself an almost R.

    Here's someone who modded their non-R in to an R look a like:

    Also, there are a few others, think I've seen 2 white Cayman S's with the stripes & black vents / mirrors.

    Thanks for the picture...I took the vents off they are now away being painted.

    I'am not a fan of the side stripes and black mirrors...sorry.


    The steering wheel on the wrong side......everyone here seems to have their's on the right side...

    Yeah, the stripes its easy to go one way or the other. The good thing is that they're easily removed!

    If I had a red or white car, I'd probably go with the black vents & mirrors, and I'd probably even "try on" the stripes since they're cheap & easily removed when/if I got tired of it.

    This one...



    It's a beauty isn't it......but I don't actually have one yet, I take it the wheel can be ordered from any OPC the price might be scary though I've not plucked up enough courage to go and ask...
