    Cayenne as a family car - need advice

    Hi!

    I own a 997.1 targa 4s which I love
    My wife drives a bmw 330xi that still has 7 months on the lease.

    I am looking for the replacement car/truck and heavily considering buying an '08 Cayenne from Florida/or some southern states where there is no winter.

    I have a 1.5yr old daughter, and another baby on the way
    So the car has to be comfortable with getting 2 kids in and out with the child car seats.

    Does Cayenne has 2 or 3 seats that can be installed?

    If we go up to 3 kids within 3 years, I wouldn't want to change the car...

    We care for the environment (ha!) but also would like a fun car to drive. Turbos come very cheap with the bad market in the states, so that's very seducing of a deal

    So here are the questions:

    1. Does air suspension come only on Turbos?
    2. If you were in my position - would you choose Cayenne /S/T/GTS (TTS is just way too much power). Please explain
    3. Would you consider another car? Q5?
    4. Which packages I should pay attention to while choosing the car?

    Sorry for the lame questions, I know a lot about 911s but I was never a fan on SUVs... my wife loves the Cayenne though, figured I need to prepare and do the research

    All your answers are greatly appreciated!

    Thanks!

    cayenne is a great suv/daily.
    i am very happy with my CTT. was going to go for the facelift and then decided on a X6 50i until cayenne II comes out.

    power is never enough. so i would recommend the TTS.

    air suspension is a must.

    If you decide to go with the Cayenne I can hook you up with one of the nicest guys in Houston. They're dying to sell them so you may be able to get a great price.

    I stopped by to test drive a GTS Thursday and noticed they had 2 turbo S that were just delivered while I was there in a shrink wrap .

    with those young kids etc - an S with air;pcm; full leather
