My Nephew is going to look at a silver 3.2 Cayenne (80K) tomorrow (at a dealers) reg: EU55OPJ and I thought it might be worth asking on here if anyone knows anything about it?

Looks a nice car from the photos.

the 3.2 V6 is an awful under powered VW based engine that results in fuel economy up in the teens, far worse than the 4.5 V8

the car in question has air suspension which is a massive plus, heated seats and steering wheel controls running on 19" alloys which are the best balance

Warning lights all over the place, bulbs, handbrake and engine, and it would not rev above 4K on a test drive. Why do dealers say its perfect then you find you can't even drive it - what a pain in the ass. 3 hour drive as well.

Anyway he gave it a miss and ended up with this one.




He's not sure if he should keep the wheels black or have them sprayed silver??

Congrats on getting a suitable car

Wheels, best leave them till the tyres need changing but probably just as easy to buy a used set

Looks fine with the black wheels on it ,I think far better than silver and black ..
My Cayenne has Black summer wheels and now has its winter( silver ) set on .....it looks 100% better with black wheels .....

What is the spec ...?
