    Aftermarket or Retrofit Air Suspension

    I purchased a 2004 Porsche Cayenne S without the Air Suspension option. Are there any aftermarket Air Suspension system for Cayennes or does anyone know of a shop(s) in California that will retrofit the stock air suspension. I asked the Dealer and they won't do the work. Thanks in advance.

    Re: Aftermarket or Retrofit Air Suspension

    I think the most cost-effective solution is to trade your Cayenne in for one that does have air-suspension. Any retrofit worth installing will be far more expensive than what you might lose on a trade.

    Re: Aftermarket or Retrofit Air Suspension

    I just got my Cayenne S 5 days ago. I couldn'y find a Porsche Certified Pre-Owned Cayenne S with both Air Suspension and NAV installed in Cali.

    LOL impossible

    Re: Aftermarket or Retrofit Air Suspension

    I believe it because when I bought mine at the end of 03, Cayennes with air suspension were not very common here in Los Angeles.

    The only assumption can be that the dealers were trying to keep the price within reason of what they'd be able to sell and they opted to stock either the Cayenne w/Nav or the Cayenne w/air susp.

    Re: Aftermarket or Retrofit Air Suspension

    I have seen a Cayenne S with air suspension but no xenon and nav, I don't get it.

    Re: Aftermarket or Retrofit Air Suspension

    My S came with NAV and Xenon lights. I really wanted the Air suspension option for better handling on sport mode. I guess my steel suspension will have to do unless I go to the race track or go off roading. Has anyone tried off roading or race track with steel suspension on their S?

    Re: Aftermarket or Retrofit Air Suspension

    The steel suspension would be the preferred setup for the track, in my opinion. All the track Cayennes at the Porsche Driving Experience are steel suspension so I guess there are others who think so too.

    For off-road the air-suspension is a real asset because of the increased ground clearance capability. You can of course go off-road in your steel suspension Cayenne but you should be careful on uneven terrain and just generally watch for ground clearance issues. Stick to the moderate trails.
