    From dreams to ownership: she's arrived.

    After many years of lusting for one, endless back-and-forth indecisiveness and months of torturous waiting, I finally took delivery of my 2012 Cayenne S this morning. I had a long, emotional welcome-to-my-life post in mind for its arrival, but I'm too exhilarated and just so, so happy to have my car after all this time.

    Some of the key options [high spec, brace yourselves]:
    - Exterior in dark blue metallic
    - Interior in two-tone black and titanium blue
    - 20-inch RS Spyder Design wheels with colored wheel centers
    - 18-way adaptive sports seats
    - Panoramic roof system
    - Sports exhaust system
    - Reversing camera including front/rear ParkAssist
    - Aluminum interior package
    - Aluminum gear selector
    - Heated front/rear seats + ventilated front seats
    - Burmester High-End Surround Sound System

    The car is simply breathtaking, and I was informed by my dealer that it's the only one in Kuwait in that color combination [people here tend to favor all-beige interiors]. The interior is incredible - extremely classy and understated - and I really am hard-pressed to find any words to describe the Burmester system. I've been smiling non-stop since the morning and my face now hurts, but I can't stop. I've already put 200 kilometers on it and plan on getting more in, all within the parameters of the break-in for the first 3000 kilometers; that's where the fun begins.

    I'll get pictures/more details up soon. Porsche was right: you won't be able to sleep the night before delivery and won't want to the night after.

    Re: From dreams to ownership: she's arrived.

    Such a great moment ! Enjoy it to the fullest ! I love dark blue porsches, I haven't seen any real pictures of the black/blue interior so I'm curious to see how it turns out. 


    Re: From dreams to ownership: she's arrived.

    Congratulations! You seem extremely excited which is a very good feeling.

    You  didn't go for the air suspension or it is standard in the Kuwait market?

    Congratulations with the realization of your dreams! wink


    Re: From dreams to ownership: she's arrived.

    This took a little longer than I expected, but I got caught up with several family-related activities over the past few days.

    In any case, here are a few quick photos I took with my iPhone; I'll work on better ones as soon as I can. Do share your opinions!

    Wow,

    I initially thought you´re preparing for Halloween... Smiley

    Looking good though, with the sheets off!


    Re: From dreams to ownership: she's arrived.

    I thought there were two KKK members in the front seats, at first. smiley

    Your cars looks very tatsteful in this colour scheme inside and outside. Again Mabrouk kiss

    KKK members in the front seats was also my first impression...

    Looking forward to more interior pics - without the sheets..kiss
