New Pcar in the stable!

Finally pulled the trigger on trading in her 100k mile X5 for a new SUV
and picked up a new titanium silver 06 Cayenne V-6!

It is a very nice ride, it has a tad more power than the X5 had, and it drives much better than the X5 did, and that is saying alot cause the X5 was a great truck. The 6 is nice amd smooth, and the tiptronic tranny is quite fun to shift from the steering wheel. It is much better then the BMW steptronic was to shift on the fly. It has about the same storage room as the X5 did, and was about 10 grand cheaper than the new X5 to boot!

Got a pretty good deal from beverly hills porsche. They had 6 they were trying to clear for the new 08's, and they were ready to deal.

We got the tow package, full leather, privacy glass, heated seats, dual climate control, variable assist steering, moonroof, aluminum interior trim. Only 2 options that it didnt have that I wanted were nav and the turbo 18" wheel package. The 18's will definitely come soon as the tires on the stock 17's have BIG aspect ratios 265/60 IIRC. They are a bit bouncy.

Pics to follow.

yea, the 17's are the standard size, they have 2 different versions of 18's, one version of 19's (which I think come on the titanium S models?) and one style of 20's.

I loved the look of the 20's, but the dealer guys told me the rear tires last only 6-7k miles with the 20's? Can you say negative camber inner tread wear?

I really like the turbo 18's, and the titanium S 19's. Come bonus time this december I will get one of those with some better rubber. The stock continentials are crap.

boggtown, how do the 19's ride?

They ride great due to the amount of rubber on them. Its not like my boxster with 19's where im running 30 profile tries, lol. Id say 19's are the best for everything, the rides good, responsive, look good, and for what you have to pay extra (the bigger size), it suits the car better. I say you might as well wait and get some aftermarket 22's, lol.
