Rotated / spun the nearside wheels ... not as fast as the above video , all appears good. 
 
Previously ... whilst all the wheels were off I inspected the original brakes. Rear discs worn more than the fronts, front pads (~5mm) worn more than the rears (~8mm). Did not have a caliper / micrometer to gauge the discs, guessing that the rears may need replacing soon as they have a small `lip` whereas the fronts `feel` OK. 
 
Is this the `normal`wear pattern for this car - system ? I believe that minimum thickness for the discs is 26mm and 18mm ? - thank you. 
 
Brake fluid level is just above minimum, much easier to see with the trim panel removed than through it`s aperture when in place. 
 
...........
 
A job on the offside rear caliper / lines ... an earlier MoT noted corrosion on a rear offside linethat which attaches directly to the caliper. What I saw was deteriorating / flaking coating hence rubbed it down and coated with Lithium and Copper grease.

By way of assisting a friend with a tyre selection decision, for PS4S`s ... I allowed him (fully insured) to take me out for a run in my car. T`was nervously exciting, satisfying and even enjoyable !
 
He runs a Cayman R and as I learned is a very good driver (phew ). Conditions ranged from damp to wet and we never missed a beat / apex ! Whilst being unsure of how I would have driven those roads, the feeling from the passenger seat was of great reassurance in the car`s capability. 
 
Feedback being ... he liked the lighter steering, exhaust (PSE off) note deeper than the CR. Tyres were OK but was not wanting to push someone else`s car too much to really test them !!!
