    Cayenne and Cayenne S painted lower body panels

    Someone know if Porsche has in plan to make the options for the Cayenne and Cayenne S to have the lower part of the body painted in body colour instead of have it black?

    I love the Cayenne Turbo look,the 3.2 and S looks not finished with that black lower part....

    If this oprions will be available i will change my Cayenne colour..that now is Black..

    Thanks

    I am not aware of any plans at present. The exclusive department might be able to do it. They already have a number of special Cayenne exterior trim details. You can get mirrors and grill in that brushed aluminum look.

    You can also have it painted yourself. I did (see below). There was also a Cayenne S at the Porsche dealer in Mexico that was painted Sand White. That was very nice.

    Re: Cayenne and Cayenne S painted lower body panels

    Here's the car from Porsche Puebla.

    Re: Cayenne and Cayenne S painted lower body panels

    You can paint ALL, if you pay it :=)

    Re: Cayenne and Cayenne S painted lower body panels

    Thanks guys...

    I know i can paint them aftermarket..but i prefer have the car finished one times for all..

    After the holidays i ask my dealer if he can tell me how much i must pay...

    Re: Cayenne and Cayenne S painted lower body panels

    Re: Cayenne and Cayenne S painted lower body panels

    The dealer painted mine so that is where I will go back if there is a problem with the paint.

    And, thanks for the compliment on the car.

    Re: Cayenne and Cayenne S painted lower body panels

    Exclusive department offers now some options which aren't available in the sales brochure. I actually like it more if the lower body parts are black (I was thinkhing of painting mine in black because the Turbo has ones painted in body color ) but it isn't worth the extra money.
    Imagine how fast the painted parts get scratched, especially if you do some serious off-roading.

    The painting of the lower body parts should be available in Europe (for now) through Exclusive department, just ask your dealer to talk to Exclusive department in Germany.
    However you should be aware of one thing: every Exclusive mod involving painting may delay the delivery of your car by at least one month.

    I don't get it, Dario: why don't you get a black Cayenne S and forget about spending additional money for "design" options? I had the chance to drive the V6 (Tip) and I didn't like it. For a guy used to a 996 Turbo like you, you won't be happy. Don't say I didn't "warn" you.

    Re: Cayenne and Cayenne S painted lower body panels

    Thanks Chris for worning me.. i know that on the 3.2 i will have NO engine...but i prefer to take some money to spend on the 997 Turbo...

    I can't wait to see how it will look,and how much power it has!

    Re: Cayenne and Cayenne S painted lower body panels

    Darione,Chris!
    I've the same problem!
    I'll order my cayenne s this week ,and i'd like to have the car painted like the turbo.
    my dealer says that it's impossible to order this option !
    please tell me the exclisive code as soon as possible!!!

    however if it's impossible to have it i'll paint the car myself! (better my coachbuilder !!)


    thanks!!!

    I believe the Cay is offered with an offroad package that includes black lowers for that very reason of avoiding having the color trim nicked. Hopefully thit package is available in the same spec. in Europe?

    Re: Cayenne and Cayenne S painted lower body panels

    I have dark teal metallic and the contrast is not too obvious, I think it looks worse with the light colors.

    Re: Cayenne and Cayenne S painted lower body panels

    I also think the dark teal looks fine with the black moldings. It's not that noticeable and, even when noticed, not really that objectionable.

    Some have commented on the possibility of the paint being scratched when off-roading. I have had my moldings painted for a few months now and I also do a good bit of off-roading. I don't see any paint scraped off yet.

    I was under the car doing some other work today and was able to examine those panels closely. I can see that they have received quite a few scrapes but nothing that removed the paint yet. The paint adhesion seems excellent. I think my painter did a good job.

    Re: Cayenne and Cayenne S painted lower body panels

    What about a white Cayenne S? Should I get my lower body painted too? Or should I leave it black?

    I'm getting the 22" Black wheels though. Help help, thanksss

    Re: Cayenne and Cayenne S painted lower body panels

    I think a white S with painted lower moldings looks great. Did you look at the one from Porsche Puebla at the beginning of this thread?

    Re: Cayenne and Cayenne S painted lower body panels

    yup I did, that influenced me to do the same LOL... alright I'll get it painted, anyway I will need to buy the Turbo Rear Valance, quite lucky that its not as expensive as I thought.

    I will need to get the lower body parts sanded smooth before painting them right? Do you know roughly how much the painting will cost?

    Thanks

    Re: Cayenne and Cayenne S painted lower body panels

    You can get them sanded or not, up to you. I did not. My cost was $700 through the dealer's paint shop and it was part of the purchase so it was at their cost I believe. Figure $700-$1000. Make sure the paint shop knows what they are doing. Prep for the plastic and the right amount of flex additive for the paint will be critical.

    Re: Cayenne and Cayenne S painted lower body panels

    thanks for the advice Don't worry, my autoshop is doing a great job

    If its not sanded, do you think there will be a lot of dots on the paint? Because I feel that the lower body parts are not smooth.

    Re: Cayenne and Cayenne S painted lower body panels

    Your right, the're not smooth and if you don't sand them they will have a textured quality to them. I don't mind this at all and, in fact, I like the lower moldings with a little texture. Many other Porsches have a texture to the paint on the lower moldings. I think it's to make the inevitable nicks and dings in this area less noticeable.

    Re: Cayenne and Cayenne S painted lower body panels

    Alright cool.
    My friend can hook me up with the Turbo Rear Valance for a cheaper price, but they need to ship it to my place. I'm sure my dealer charges me more than my friend. Also I do not trust my dealer because they did terrible job. I guess I have to do the painting and sanding and installation in another place Hopefully the total cost will not be that high.
