    Re: The New Addition to the Family!!

    Very nice, Kevin. Congrats!
    The Techart wheels look great on the Cayenne.
    May I suggest adding the air suspension black box from Techart?

    Caution: aftermarket mods may affect your factory warranty.

    Re: The New Addition to the Family!!

    congrats to your beautiful new family member and thanks for the pictures!!

    black is THE color of choice for the cayenne IMO.

    Re: The New Addition to the Family!!

    Congratulations Kevin! It is an awesome looking vehicle. Very impressive.

    I really like the before and after sequence you are showing us. I have an S as well and had the lower moldings painted on mine. On yours it appears you had the S moldings swapped for the Turbo moldings. Did you swap exhaust tips just to match the molding or do you prefer the twin tips?

    I also like the clear lens conversion. I have resisted it so far but your photos may have convinced me to do it.

    Re: The New Addition to the Family!!

    Thank you guys!!!

    RC I was considering it. but $2500 is not worth it.. also Harvy another guy that just got a TT.. had a problem with it.. aparently when he went over a bump something happened..

    GM I wanted the TT Tips.. and I had them chromed as well..
    so in order to make those fit you have to get the TT Valance which was sanded down for a smooth painted look.. Im not sure if im going to paint the side moldings and front, I want to see how the rear holds up paint wise, and then I may paint the rest.. But the rear Valance piece is the most noticable being painted on black. The sides and front really blend in with
    the black.. Do the clear markers they look nice!! I have some written instructions if you need them...

    2500 $? Wow, Techart knows how to take premiums.

    Re: The New Addition to the Family!!

    >I want to see how the rear holds up paint wise,<

    the guy of my paintshop told me that the manufacturers use
    normally different sorts of plastic for painted (like the ones on a TT) and nonpainted (like on the S) parts. the nonpaint plastics have a lot more recycling materials and can cause probs with paint wich appears not directly but after 6, 12 months. he don`t recommend to paint the S parts - the same for the alu look plastics around the windows.

    so when he`s right you dont will have probs with your back part cuz it`s from a TT

    Re: Congrats..great family!! (nt)


    Re: The New Addition to the Family!!

    Wow, nice car! This is the best looking Cayenne I have seen so far. But how is the ride quality on 22 inches?


    Re: The New Addition to the Family!!

    Thanks Temm....Its actually pretty smooth with the air suspension set on comfort mode, if I set it to Sport Mode, it feels like my X5 with 19's and sport suspension... I would think if you didn't have Air suspension I wouldn't go more then 20's

    Re: The New Addition to the Family!!

    Those Techarts are HOT!!
