    I finalized my order today.....

    Done deal .... I finalized my order today.

    Cayenne S (2004 Model), Dark teal metallic, Havanna interior, 18" turbo wheels, Air suspension, Bi-xenon lights, Tire pressure monitor, moonroof and some other minor goodies.

    I confirm the moonroof is a mandatory option.....and it's not free !!!

    Expected delivery: April/May 2003

    Now I have to be patient and dream about it !!! until my dream turns into reality.


    2004 model??

    2004 Model !!!!

    Yes it will be a 2004 model year.

    The first Cayenne which will be delivered in March 2003 in the US are "non" spec. cars. You have to pick one from the dealer's alotment and it will be a 2003 model.

    On the other hand if you accept to get your Cayenne later (i.e. from April/May 2003 onwards) your car is built following your specifications and it will be a 2004 model.

    So I have decided not to get an "early" model whilst my name is 5th on the list and wait an extra month or two to get the Cayenne I really want.

    Re: I finalized my order today.....

    MY 2004 starts july/august 2003. But as the Cayenne started now, I guess all cars are MY 2004 as far as I know.
    I'll get into it as soon as possible.

    Another thing: before you finalize your order, testdrive a BMW X5is and a Mercedes ML55 before. The Cayenne S is similar in power output. This is to avoid deceptions after taking delivery. And a good advise for ALL future Cayenne customers: do not order the Cayenne (no matter if S or Turbo) without the Air Suspension. Without it, the handling is more SUV like.
    And another good advise for Off-Road lovers: go for the Cayenne S and not for the Cayenne Turbo. I'll get into details in my driving report but only some short hint: turbo lag.

    Re: I finalized my order today.....

    I too thought that all Cayennes will be MY 2004. BUT it's not the case. When I stopped at my Porsche dealer yesterday, he showed me his allotment and they were described as MY 2003. He confirmed that my Cayenne will be a MY 2004 even if it will be delivered just a month or 2 after the initial launch in the US !!!!

    I'm such a Porsche enthusiast that I won't be disappointed by the Cayenne S. Anyway, it's too late now, my deposit isn't refundable.... I'm sure it will be a great car and it will be my first NEW Porsche....

    Thanks for animating this forum...

    Re: I finalized my order today.....

    You will never forget picking up your first Porsche
    Its just that feeling!
    And the funpart is you have wait,and wait

    Re: I finalized my order today.....

    Hi Dedam,

    Thank you very much.... I remember when I bought my used 911 at the Porsche dealer. It took 5 month and many trips to the dealer to find the right one. Then when I found it, I couldn't sleep the night I signed-up for it nor the night before taking delivery of it....

    I'm sure it will be same thing for the Cayenne. I think it will be 3 years between the time I put my name on the list and dropped a deposit and the time I receive it...

    Patiente is the name of the game

    Congrats!!!! (NT)
