After 2 997's its time for a change and possibly something more practical.

Love my C4s and have enjoyed every moment of ownership but hanker for something a bit bigger so im off to join the Cayenne club.

Thanks for all the useful info & banter. I may well be back in a couple of years, especially with how good the new 992 looks!

Be safe chaps.

Surprised

We've got a sub-forum for Chelsea tractors too so you don't need to depart completely.

EDIT: Just realised you were probably just saying bye to the 997 boys.

Oh & you Phil, are a very bad influence as im off to see the new Bentley GTC on Monday night..

Man maths - if i have a "sensible" 4x4 car, maybe a cab would be a nice thing to tour the continent in!! Not yet though!

Oh mate enjoy the visit they are really nice , not a big grin as the 997 but there isn't much out there with the pure comfort, luxury and big power if you need it. they are capable of 200mph from stock while sitting in your best armchair Grin Grin and the V8 will even return you double didget MPG Floor Floor

I changed the wife disco 4 to a cayenne 3.0d and so glad we did! Great drive and in the right trim a great looking 4X4.

Good luck with finding one
