    Order for C4S

    I am just aboout to order a C4S (Dealer seems to think I already have, but we have not agreed what my C2S is worth yet!)
    I have so far specified;
    Black,
    Full leather Black Interior,
    Nav
    Telephone
    Sports seats
    Cruise (must keep the points off my licence)

    Any views would be appreciated, I am not likely to track the car and use it every day (about 15,000 miles per year).
    I live in the North of England, and it rains and sometimes snows (Suprising more than the south)
    I have a tan interior but it gets grubby quickly and I now realise my favourite jacket is not colourfast.
    I am happy to wash it every day, sometimes twice according to my wife!

    Re: Order for C4S

    Black on Black is nice.

    Of course it's more money but if you could afford it, I'd add:

    Sport Chrono

    Since you have full leather you can get option "P01L" Adaptive sport seats w/ full leather int. - costs $2695 vs. $3055 for "PO1" Adaptive sport seats. (And you'll get full power seats w/ memory, adjustable bolsters and lumbar.) It's still about $1900 more then leather sport seats.

    Crests in headrests (w/ sport/adaptive sport seats this gives it a more sporty look and it's cheap)

    PSE

    Thicker sports steering wheel.

    Don't get the cruise control in combination with a sportscar

    You can set a speed limit in your BC, when you get over it you hear a sound... and you are supposed to slow down

    Re: Order for C4S

    correct dont get cruise control!! get the sport chrono and maybe two-tone interior????

    Re: Order for C4S

    POWER KIT - 381HP!!

    Re: Order for C4S

    I used to think cruise control was unnecessary also, but here in the UK there are increasing numbers of SPECS cameras on our motorways - they measure your average speed over a measured distance (1-2 miles) by reading your number plate at both ends.

    Last year I picked up a ticket for 57mph in a 50mph limit (M6 roadworks) - and I was making a conscious effort to obey the limit. My speed drifted up because I was watching the road rather than the dash - cruise control would have saved me that time, and I'm sure many times in future.

    I'll order it next time (using the money saved by not ordering the sunroof!)

    Also here in belgium cruisecontrol can help a lot when you want to drive without constant scanning the sides of the road for speedtraps...
    I didn't have it on my 996 and missed it a lot...
    (and i'm definetly not a turtle on the road)

    Re: Order for C4S

    I wouldn't buy a Porsche without PSE, but that's just me.

    Re: Order for C4S

    Do you like the black part on the side of the C4/S ? If not..there is an oiption to have them painted!!

    Yes, I 've added this option last week.... and droped the CD changer instead (thaught I must put an end to the option list... ). I guess on a black car it will not show too much, but on my Seal grey it would. I suppose that when painted it will look like the C2.
    Pics to come in middle ( maybe end) of november.....

    Re: Order for C4S

    Thank you Gnil!

    Look forward to seeing the pics- won't be much longer!

    Re: Order for C4S

    Thanks guys some great ideas to think about.

    Re: Order for C4S

    Me too on the cruise control option. Here in the UK it is a must. This car is too easy to drive fast and I'd rather focus on what is around me than on my speedometer.

    John - may I ask why are you getting a C4S? After switching from a 4WD Audi to my C2S, I much prefer the RWD only. I'd also be interested to see what price you get for your C2S as I think you got yours only a little before I got mine.

    Re: Order for C4S

    not having mine painted, looks more sporty and also less subject to scratching.
    definitely x51

    Sorry not to reply sooner, been absent. I am in somthing of a quandry over getting a C4, I ordered it on delivery of my C2, but now, I find I am in danger of buying less of a car for what will turn out to be quite a lot more money (I make it in the order of Pounds20,000).
    I was offered 55-57 for my 13,000 miler in August from an independant dealer, Porsche in mid septemebr offered 55,000. (Invoice was 67,000) I have declined to accept 55K and told them that I will take 59,000 in Spetember and 1,000 less per month (with 1,000) miles added unitl Xmas when it will be Pounds56,000 and 15,999 miles and the C4S arrives.
    They are supposed to get back to me on this but are being very slow, I suspect it simply isn't worth it for them, but then again it isn't worth it for me to take less, I have a very nice car.
    In the meanwhile I have been kicking the tyres at various places really to get my enthusiam back up, I tried a 645 but disliked it, however a couple of days ago I tried a continental GT I expected it to be big heavy and numb, but I was really impressed, nothing like as agile as the Porsche, but as you can tell from the mileages I do a lot of boring motorway driving including a very boring 30 minute traffic jam each day (The GT has a TV for times like that). I am tempted, I love the Porsche as soon as I can get off the motorway, but after a year I am finding it unrewarding in traffic. I had thought I would not like to be anaesthetised again, I had a LS400 at one point, but the Bentley can let you sleep then wake you up very effectively.

    I think I am too soft, I had a 996 Targa for demo with PSE, but I didn't like to annoy the neighbours.
    I could really get stuck into the options list but whoa the cost, but thicker wheel I may well be up for having jumped from the Bentley to the 997 (Felt like climbing into a wheelie bin) and really noticed the spindly little wheel. You can assure me there is no loss of feel? it is not all padding?
