    CS arrives next week - one small question

    The X5 has gone and the new Cayenne should be here next week.

    That's if Porsche can manage to work out some simple arithmetic to get to a final price without changing it all the time. This been my first Porsche, I have to say I'm not impress with the level of customer service they have provided. It's like, as a customer spending 60k, you are not taken seriously; it makes me wonder what sort of money you would have to spend before you get treated with a bit of respect? If it wasn't for the car I would have walked away along time ago.

    Anyway I will get off my soap box and ask my question, as I'm sure I will get a quicker response than asking my dealer.

    Having gone with the Non Smoking option does this mean that there won't be any power outlets in the car to power 3rd party devices i.e. through the cigarette lighter. I get a feeling that I've made a bit of a mistake in selecting this option.

    I would like to say that this forum has been invaluable in helping make my selection and I hope to become a more regular contributor in the near future.

    Re: CS arrives next week - one small question

    Have to say that I've had mixed dealer service in the UK. I bought my 997 from Towcester and the salesman was great but the way the company does business is less so. Getting an accompanied 20 minute test drive in a 997 is hardly long enough to make your mind up in my opinion and they will not allow unaccompanied test drives.

    I have recently been looking at buying a V6 Cayenne so went back to Towcester but still couldn't get an unaccompanied test drive even after just parting with Pounds70k for my 997. I was seriously unhappy about this. My BMW dealer gave me an X5 4.8 for a week and an X5 3.0d for 3 days to test out. I went to the Porsche Centre in Cambridge and they gave me a Cayenne V6 for a full day including an overnight to test out the non xenon lights. They were excellent and really wanted to get my business. However a friend of mine knows a salesman at the Edinburgh Porsche centre who had a high spec Titanium V6 coming into stock so I have gone for that car. I loved the X5s but I've had one before and they are just too common in the UK these days. The Cayenne is still a rarer sight on our roads.

    It really goes to show the difference good customer care leaves on you as I would recommend Cambridge to anyone in the UK as my experience was very good. I'm just sorry they couldn't supply the car I was after unless I went for a factory order which was too long a wait.

    There are two power outlets below the glove box. They are well hidden and you'll have to kneel down to see them. Another one is in the trunk.

    There's two more at the back of the center console.
