Don’t think I have that option.

That said, I’ll not lose any sleep over not having it!

Quick, change the order! :))

I’m not sure of the make, but I’ve got one on mine. Pretty impressive bit of kit.

Yep, I’ll be getting mine detailed once the weather picks up, as the number of swirl marks visible in direct sunlight are horrifying.

How about £115 including postage? Look how much new ones are from a dealer; these are significantly cheaper!  ;)

The turbo is over 100k though.

But the S will be a bit of a let down compared to the M. If you can get such a good deal on the flagship model from BMW, why get a middle of the range Porsche? Once the new car novelty wears off, you’ll wish you got the M. If it was me, I’d get the M, then look at the Cayenne in a year or two, once they are offering discounts. Or save more and get the Turbo! :))

Cayenne S, 440 bhp

But that’s over 100bhp down on the M. Surely the Turbo would be a better comparison?

That is the problem really. The new Cayenne looks very nice and is identical priced as the X5M after discount. A discount level of 21.5% on the X5 versus next to nothing (seems to be about £1500 on the Cayenne).

The X5 has more toys and more power, but is older. Hmm.

Which model of Cayenne are you looking at?

You’ve come this far, why not! :))

Looking good. A cheeky carbon front splitter would look spot on! You know you want to! :)

The only thing stopping me is that I can’t fit the rear diffuser, as it’s got the retractable towbar, so may look bare at the back in comparison to the front.

Blades fitted. Plate fitted. I’m trying to resist looking at the M Performance carbon stuff!  :))

I went with DoDo Juice leather cleaner & their sealant. Will apply one day this week/ weekend, and see how it goes.
