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?

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.

The new blades have now been fitted, but they don’t seem very secure to me. The dealer has bonded them on, but I’m not confident that they won’t disappear again. We shall see.

Is this the car equivalent of spokey dokeys?  :))

Rich not sure which M50d model you driving, but if it's F15 your car is equipped with as you called it "spokey dokeys" as standard from factory. 😳😳
Same as new BMW M5 lol
However it's called ASD - active sound design, where fake exhaust and engine note is transmitted via build in hifi speakers for enhanced driving pleasure 🤷‍♂️
Active Sound exhaust is an option for it.

 :P

Yep, it’s a late 2017 F15, so I guess it has it. I thought that it sounded throaty inside the cabin!

I’ve read about this before but never used it:

That looks good, but I’d rather get something tried & tested on the piano trim. I don’t want to risk making them worse.

General X5 Forum (F15) / Light scratches on piano black trim
« on: January 15, 2018, 07:33:21 AM »
So, what’s the consensus on removing a couple of fine scratches? I’ve got some Xerapol in the garage, which is great for removing scratches from the plastics on my bikes, but wondered if it would be any good on the piano trim? I’ve also heard that Novus 2 may be good.

Thoughts?
