    My Cayenne Turbo arrived...

    I just picked it up today.
    It looks great, it drives great but there are two major disappointments:
    1. lurching (YES), shifting and throttle reaction are horrible
    2. engine/exhaust sound (our vacuum cleaner sounds nicer...)

    I'll post a detailled report after Eastern but I have to admit that I didn't expect that kind of bad shifting/throttle reaction.
    CF suggested to turn off PSM and try again and this is exactly what I'm gonna do over the next few days but compared to our ML55 AMG, the shifting/throttle response is absolutely horrible.

    Another (small) disappointment: the front engine protection plate has a slightly brown color tone which makes it look a little bit strange on a titanium colored car. I think it looks best on a green car.

    Don't worry, I really like my Cayenne Turbo but I never thought the "lurching thing" could be that annoying. I know that the gearbox and engine have to "learn" first and that it'll gonna improve but it still feels strange.

    Congratulations RC!!!

    Finally!

    Turning off the PCM will give you a much more aggressive shift mapping. That should't be the solution though, of course. Porsche needs to work on this.

    Re: My Cayenne Turbo arrived...

    congratulations!! they look beautiful, can you take some pictures with the light on? I'm curious about euro spec cayenne's light.

    those lower valance have textures right? ohh no did you let the dealer drill the front holes for the front plate??

    anyway, that car is a beauty!! time to get Techart exhaust system since the stock one sounds worse than a vacuum cleaner

    Re: My Cayenne Turbo arrived...

    Looks great. Like the wheels!

    I don't know what that is. Surely it's not cosmoline. It should be bright metallic brushed stainless steel, like at the rear hatch. Maybe it just needs a cleaning?

    Re: My Cayenne Turbo arrived...

    Congratulations RC on your Cayenne.

    I really dig that wheels:)))

    Woshhhh....

    Re: My Cayenne Turbo arrived...

    Freakin' awesome!

    The tinted windows look so pimp!

    Congrats and hopefully it should be trouble free

    I just thought to ask, doesn't the gearbox come from Mercedes? I know the 911 one does, is the Cayenne's the same but beefed up or a new one? 5/6 gears?

    Engine noise disappointing, the V8 burble is a beast, the only car remotely comparable in sound is the CL65, which is of course quieter...

    Re: My Cayenne Turbo arrived...

    Congrats RC
    good choice of wheels too. You don't like the exhaust sound? I haven't heard it in real life but in video is sounded good to me, a deep growl of a big powerful V8 which suited the Cayenne TT very well. Maybe you can post a sound file later on?

    Re: My Cayenne Turbo arrived...

    gorgeous from the side view--

    i'm with you on your disappointments though-- hopefully things work out a bit over short period of time...

    Re: My Cayenne Turbo arrived...

    congratulations christian

    i like the color, the rims and the privacy glasses -- does look great. and mighty.

    and regarding the exhaust sound... i wonder if there's an europipe system available for the cayenne

    First at all: THANKS GUYS, I know that some of you actually don't like the Cayenne and this is why I appreciate your wishes even more. I can assure you that it is a very impressive car and apparently people on the street like it a lot because they start asking me about it at the fuel station, parking lot, etc..

    Back to "business": I need tinted (actually heat insulating) glass because I have two kids riding in the rear and the sun can be sometimes pretty nasty in Bavaria (or Italy/South France).
    The gearbox of the Cayenne is made by the japanese company Aisin who do heavy duty stuff for trucks, etc.

    The exhaust sound is quite a disappointment because I heard the Cayenne in two or three videos and it had that superb V8 growl of the old US muscle cars. It seems that the press gets special versions of the Cayenne...
    My wife is actually happy about it but I might consider installing a sport exhaust later on.

    Regarding the "lurching" thing: when I turn the PSM (ESP) off, the car changes completely, throttle and shifting response are absolutely great. I tried to drive a little bit more aggressive with PSM on (NOT off!) and it seems that the gearbox adapts pretty fast to my driving style but it still isn't what I expect. With PSM off however, it is exactly how I like it. Now if Porsche would adapt my motronic/gearbox ECU mapping in such a way that it reacts with PSM on like it does with PSM off, I'd be a very happy guy.
    I can't hide the feeling that the current mapping setup has something to do with fuel consumption and maybe emissions.

    I agree completely! Well ... that plus some "Mother Hen" safety concerns over anyone spinning their tires. I find it darn difficult to break traction with this car. I guess that's good for safety reasons, but I really miss sliding sideways.

    Re: My Cayenne Turbo arrived...

    Great sign 330!

    Re: My Cayenne Turbo arrived...

    Congratulations RC
    I remember you ordered colored wheels?

    Re: My Cayenne Turbo arrived...

    Congratulations, have fun.....

    Re: My Cayenne Turbo arrived...

    Thanks RC, I know Aisin Warner makes the Lexus LS430 gearbox as well, and that has recieved a lot of praise...

    Try and get a sports exhaust, remove the cats, and make some drifting videos

    I hope you're adhering to the break in period

    Re: My Cayenne Turbo arrived...

    Congrats RC, awesome truck
    The titanium grey color looks a little blueish on these pics. I recently saw a basaltblack Cayenne with the front underside protection plate and it didn't look different on that one, mixed
    up quite well actually.

    Re: My Cayenne Turbo arrived...

    Very nice and enjoy
