    Air suspension+PDCC is good for New GTS ??

    Can any brother tell me should I keep the GTS exclusive combination of high-performance steel-sprung suspension with PASM or Change it to Air suspension + PDCC. It's very difficukt to make my choice. Thanks for your help.


    Re: Air suspension+PDCC is good for New GTS ??

    Hi Markdsv,

    thanks for your advise but I still cannot dicided get the Air+PDCC or not. It cost quite high in HK about USD12,500.
    any GTS owner here can tell more about your GTS according to your driving experiance. I think there must have some brothers who has a steelsuspension + PASM and some brothers has an Air + PDCC + PASM.

    Thanks

    Re: Air suspension+PDCC is good for New GTS ??

    Hi Kevin,

    I would go for the Air + PDCC + PSAM as it makes the Cayenne very versitile. If you want a sporty ride you push some buttons and of you go. Remember if you want a more smooth ride with the steel springs you are snookered. I have heard reviews from the UK that the steel springs make the ride too hard on the UK roads. OK the roads are not great but quite a bit better that here (so air is a no brainer). Actually I sold my X5 4.8is just because of the hard ride. My wifes landcruiser was a far more confortable ride and I have now the best of both worlds (power and confort)

    Personally I think it is worth while the money and I think CPA4S mentioned that 95% of the GTS have been sold with air suspension so the majority are choosing for the more expensive option.

    Hi Markdsv,

    thanks for your advise, but until now I still cannot see any GTS (steel springs ) owner to tell their experience. if any brother here is a owner of GTS in (steel springs ) please tell your comments.

    Re: Air suspension+PDCC is good for New GTS ??

    There was a discussion about this in the German forum section a while ago. The GTS with steel springs and without Servotronic seems to have a better handling and makes the driver feel more connected with the car. The air suspension, that RC referred to, is significantly softer. Please note that there was no (i]direct connection between GTS steel- and GTS air-suspension but the handling with regular steel springs appears to be excellent.

    Re: Air suspension+PDCC is good for New GTS ??

    I picked up my Nordic Gold GTS (steel springs) a week ago. What I can say is the setting of the suspension is perfect. I drive with 'comfort' setting in city and ' normal or sport' on highways. The balance is superior and the ride comfort is not compromized at all. Body roll is less than my Audi TT MkII.

    Re: Air suspension+PDCC is good for New GTS ??

    i need air out here to get through the driveway snow banks left by the city plows. raise it to max - drive through anything is what i say!

    i guess i may sacrifice a bit of the sport for the UV for 4 months of the year.

    I have the air suspension (PASM) but not the PDCC. I read that the GTS suspension was different from the other Cayennes. Hence I didnt feel the need for PDCC in a GTS. In any other Cayenne, I would definitely get the PDCC. For the GTS, I ended up spending the extra $ on other options instead of PDCC.

    Re: Air suspension+PDCC is good for New GTS ??

    what kind of option you add? how is it working and can you show us your car photo. Thanks

    Re: Air suspension+PDCC is good for New GTS ??

    I added power tailgate, sun blind, Porsche logo on front seat headrests. Will show you some pictures later.

    Re: Air suspension+PDCC is good for New GTS ??

    super nice.
    now I already fix all options but one thing I still confuse is the color. actually I ordered silver color but I really like the sand white with the same color front mask...difficult to choose.

    Re: Air suspension+PDCC is good for New GTS ??

    Hi Kevin,

    Go for dark olive, very nice color and something different from the silver or sand white cars already around !!! (smile)

    Cheers,

    Mark

    Re: Air suspension+PDCC is good for New GTS ??

    Hi Mark, thanks for your advise, dark olive is a very nice color, but did they stop the production of this color for 2009 GTS because I cannot find this color anymore at Porsche's home page.

    Re: Air suspension+PDCC is good for New GTS ??

    Hi Kevin,

    Indeed, I forgot, I remember that our dealer told me that I was lucky as I was one of the last once in dark olive green. Sorry to get your hopes up (smile !!)

    Cheers,

    mark
