    Order In

    Well I've done the deed and put the first deposit down on a new Cayman S. Smiley

    Delivery is for a MY10 car in September and the spec will be confirmed once I have had my session at PDE Silverstone, which hopefully will be in a few weeks. 

    BTW, there is a new standard steering wheel for MY10 which is like the PDK wheel but without the buttons (the GT3 configurator may give a clue).  There is no sport wheel option now.


    Re: Order In

    That's great - many congrats  Hope you enjoy your day at Silverstone

    Re: Order In

     Still surprised: why a Cayman and not a Boxster S?

    They are the same car, first time a car manufacturer charges more for a Coupe that a Convertible...

    Happy Driving

    Re: Order In

    Thanks everyone.  To answer your varied questions, I got a deal which I was pleased with.  Also, I have driven the Cayman and Boxster back to back and prefer the feel of the Cayman.  Not too suprising becasue generally, I prefer coupes to soft tops.  But I'd be the first to admit the Cayman is poor value for money in comparison


    Re: Order In

    Glad you got a good deal. Here in the Middle East they are just not interested in negotiation. Take it or leave it. Pity I like the brand so much as other dealers seem to be feeling the pinch.


    Re: Order In

    Many congratulations - now for the long wait and the agonising over colours and specification Smiley

    Re: Order In

    Ah yes the agony.  I've tried to telling colleagues that you have to suffer for your art - buying a new Porsche is an experience severely tempered by the misery, anguish and despair of too many options and not enough funds.  My arguements fell on deaf ears, especially when I explained that you had to go to Silverstone to try all the different chassis options.  

    Then there is the interminable waiting, which although ends with the joy of receiving your new toy, you still have to break the damn thing in.

    Although to really do the job properly you need to opt for the factory collection - truly an unforgettable experience which makes your car even more special. Smiley

    Re: Order In

    Yeah I did that on my first Boxster - absolutely briliiant but its now over £1000, which I don't think is worth a second go.
