    My new Cayenne S facelift - impressions and pics

    Hi all!

    Picked up my Cayenne S yesterday afternoon

    A lot of equipment - but I had no chance - because I've got a presentation car :

    - Black metallic
    - Full leather black
    - Tiptronic S
    - BiXenon
    - Parkassist
    - PCM
    - Skibag
    - Telephone
    - Servotronic
    - Privacy - Glass
    - Heated front seats
    - Multifunction steering wheel
    - Tempostat
    - Autom. Tailgate
    - 21" Cayenne Sport wheels
    - Bose
    - Sport seats
    - PASM
    - PDCC
    - Panoramic roof
    - PSE
    - Trailer hitch


    My first impressions:

    Car is great - I will not miss my 997 - for sure
    Ride comfort is a little harsh with 21" - even with PASM in comfort setting but softer than with my former 997 with 19". PDCC is noticeable but I do not know if it is worth the colossal money ( may be I will see areason after a few more miles ).
    Switched on PSE sitting inside the car is not a big difference to switched off. But outside it is really a difference ( and even more after burn in/out the pipes ). On my former video of PSE you can hear the difference not very well. But in reality you can here it for sure. My family thought that I returned back from the pick-up date with my old 997 hearing my arriving from inside the house
    Automatic tailgate is a great feature but what a pitty that closing is only possible by pushing the tailgate button and not by remote control ( for reasons of safety ).
    Panoramic roof is also great - not so much for the driver ( you cant see it during driving ) - but for my son it's great ( "look all these stars" - yesterday evening on the first family drive ).

    Overall driving with a Cayenne is much more relaxative than with a 997


    And here a few pics - shot by really bad weather conditions ( cloudy ) except of the first - shot at the dealership:

    Congrats Sidney - looks awesome!!
    Love how it looks on the cobbled streets

    Re: My new Cayenne S facelift - impressions and pics

    Congratulations Sydney, what a superb looking car. Those are the first real life pics of the car which make it look attractive. Those are good options you have. Enjoy!

    Re: My new Cayenne S facelift - impressions and pics


    very nice ! I love this new Cayenne ! Congratulations you must be on of the first with the new Cayenne

    we are waiting for details about the PDCC and new engine !

    and more pics ! thank you and great car !

    Re: My new Cayenne S facelift - impressions and pics

    are those the sport tips? Does PSE come with sport tips?

    Re: My new Cayenne S facelift - impressions and pi

    @BD 997

    Fortunately no - not the sport tips - looks too star wars like

    Re: My new Cayenne S facelift - impressions and pi

    Sidney,

    If you get a chance can you post some pics of the sports seats and provide your impression of them e.g. are they worth having over the standard seats?

    Re: My new Cayenne S facelift - impressions and pi

    @ISUK

    The most improvemnet on the sport seats over the standard seats is the longer seating surface - much more comfortable

    Also the leather stichting is much more nicer !

    exelent photos..best live photos yet...thanks*

    Re: My new Cayenne S facelift - impressions and pi

    Thanks Gregor. I was hoping the seat base gave more under thigh support and your comments suggest they do.

    Re: My new Cayenne S facelift - impressions and pi

    Congrats Sidney!! how about a short sound clip of that PSE?

    Re: My new Cayenne S facelift - impressions and pi

    Hi Carlos!

    I've already done this on Saturday

    See here.

    The result isn't the best - I'll try to make a new video the next few days ( after burn in/out ).

    Re: My new Cayenne S facelift - impressions and pi

    love the new look of the Cayenne!!specially with 21" rims!

    congrats!

    Re: My new Cayenne S facelift - impressions and pi

    The car looks Great Sidney, Congrats !! Cant wait for the new video and if possible try taking a vid of the cayenne accel from standstill with pse on and off. As i heard u will really notice the actually diff when reved at higher RPM and tht is ofcource after u break it in

    Re: My new Cayenne S facelift - impressions and pi

    Your new cayenne looks great, congrats!

    As someone interested in archectural design, your house looks pretty nice also!

    Re: My new Cayenne S facelift - impressions and pi

    You've certain got all the nice options. Must not be cheap when ordered that way on a new model. Did you consider just going for the Turbo?

    Re: My new Cayenne S facelift - impressions and pi

    Just had a demo in S with sports exhaust.

    Sports exhaust noticable at idle and significantly enhances sound throughout rev range.

    Had air susp but not PDCC - handled very well and massively superior to wife's ML500.

    A great car.

    Re: My new Cayenne S facelift - impressions and pi

    Very nice list of options Sidney. The wheels look great. Congrats.

    Re: My new Cayenne S facelift - impressions and pi

    @CityRacer

    Cayenne Turbo ?? Much too expansive here in Germany - only possible for forum owners ( ) or doctors - or much better having both together


    Just returned back from my first longer journey with the new Cayenne. Car gulped 15.4 l per 100 km - not bad ( no Autobahn included - only city and normal streets ).


    My first maneuver after starting the car is to push the Sport button for better sound, better look (lower), better responsiveness and then pushing the Comfort button for limousine like driving

    Re: My new Cayenne S facelift - impressions and pi

    has anyone besides RC seen the rear LED's on? I have yet to see a real pic with them on...

    Re: My new Cayenne S facelift - impressions and pi

    Gregor,

    Any news on pics of your sports seats?

    Re: My new Cayenne S facelift - impressions and pi

    very good looking with the 21 inch.. congrats

    Re: My new Cayenne S facelift - impressions and pi

    I saw the new Cayenne for the first time yesterday - it was a basalt black / sand beige V6 in my local showroom. Looked better in the metal than the snaps. My dealer told me that exclusively for Japan there was a new option. Basically, its a camera for parking - from below the LHD side view mirror a camera views the kerb, the image is actually visible in the rear rear view mirror - not sure if my explanation is clear but its quite a cool freeby for Japanese delivered cars. My sales guy reckons its only available for Japan....not sure about that.

    Re: My new Cayenne S facelift - impressions and pi

    Fantastic car Gregor! I really like the spec you selected and have been considering ordering one very similar. Could you please give a quick review now that you've spent more time with it? Very curious if there is anything you might have done differently, and if you like the ride on the 21s and PDCC. Thanks!

    Re: My new Cayenne S facelift - impressions and pi

    Congrats. Nice color. Can't wait to get mine. Are you keeping the stock wheels or are you going aftermarket? Rinspeed or techart?

    Re: My new Cayenne S facelift - impressions and pi

    Hi dr.j!

    5 months respectively 9.000 miles later :


    I don't miss my 997 ! .... says it all .... much more a grown-up car


    Cheers
    Gregor

    Re: My new Cayenne S facelift - impressions and pi


    For me it's a totally different story

    9 months and 12,000km later, I miss my 996 every day. The Cayenne S is not a bad car it's a great one BUT there is no substitute to a 911.

    May be I don't want to grow !!!!

    Actually I should have listened to my salesman. He told me, if you're really a 911 enthusiast, you'll regret it and within the next 2 years you'll buy a 911 again and not another Cayenne. I'm afraid he is right...

    Re: My new Cayenne S facelift - impressions and pi

    @EricAlain

    May be a Panamera will be my next choice ( in 2011 ) ... but we'll see if golf bags, skis, kids etc. will fit inside or not


    Cheers
    Gregor

    Re: My new Cayenne S facelift - impressions and pics

    Sidney - great looking vehicle, enjoyed reading your descriptions. As youve had it for a short while now, what are your thoughts?
