Took my new Cayman out for a drive along the Delaware river

Swapped the PO's wheels for my own set of 19" Sport Designs, adjusted the ride height a bit, then took the new car for quick 200 mile drive through Delaware Water Gap area.

Here's how she looks in twilight:

What a great shot. Car looks great! Looks more crimson in color than red though... must be the lighting.

The photo actually came out a bit dark, so I tweaked the curves a bit in lightroom before posting. It's Guards Red in daylight.

Wheels look very nice on your car. How does the 19s feel compared to the 18s?

Hard to say, exactly, as the tires on 18s were conti DWS and Michelin PSS on the 19s, very different tire feel. Generally though, I've experienced a firmer ride on 19s.
