I really had not planned to change, but ....

Post by Taz » Mon Dec 02, 2019 9:08 pm

So there I am at the OPC to have my car attended to for a safety recall, but before I know it I’m drooling over another.

The rest is history ....

So when is this ‘old enough to know better’ supposed to kick in ?

My previous Cayenne (the black one in the background) did not have air suspension. I was a bit worried about the 22 inch wheels on the new car giving a harsh ride but when I took a test drive I found the air suspension was magnificent and much better than the previous model.

Congrats.

Looks nice and I like the colour

Scary how 22” wheels can still look small these days
