That's not a downside. Lettuce is cheaper than steak.

And she is easy on the eye.

At some point I will do a video of my Turbo S with rear muffer delete so you can hear what it should really sound like.

Spent some of saturday giving the girl a deep clean, snow foam, two buckets (of course) etc.
Then sunday cracked out the machine polisher and set to doing a little paint correction.
Two stage on the bodywork , wiped down and then two coats of Blackfire wax and she is good to go, only took about 6 hours Smile

This weekend was all about callipers. Thought I would treat the " trouble and strife" as I know she always wanted them a different colour. This was all done with a brush so it is not 100% perfect in my eyes but a hellva lot less masking compared to spraying. I might do the rear with spray cans to see the difference.

First up time to clean and degrease the original ones. They were a bit shot so had to rub them down with scotchbrite which made short work of the letting.

Masked up and then two coats. This is epoxy paint with hardener, thin and thick coat and it goes off pretty quick

Found time to clean up the bolts as they were a bit rubbish

then onto the lettering. Managed to mess the first one up but luckily they give you three as they know you might ***** up at least one Very Happy

Whacked the wheels back on and job done

Her ladyship said silver so silver is what she got.

Bells needed cleaning up and painting so whilst I was under there, I decided to repaint the wishbones, suspension arms etc. Nothing fancy just the stuff that looked tatty.

That is very kind of you to say . I only post on here to show the progress but also as a way of helping other owners if they are doing similar. As we are new to the marquee and dont have the luxury of just plonking it in a garage with an open chequebook , forums like this are an invaluable help to us.

I'm considering having a dabble with a Cayenne. This thread is very useful Tony!

How do you find the big girl to drive compared to the Taureg?

Glad you found the thread helpful

It is the wife's so ago be honest I dont get to driver her ! Muggins here is left to fix and clean things up but on the odd occasion I have been allowed to drive, found the seating person fantastic, seats are proper comfy , heated seats and steering wheel a bonus at this time of year !! All in all a good interior, road handling is pretty good for such a big car though compared to the touareg, the suspension is harsh ( more sporty) so dont be fooled into thinking it is going to be all soft and marshmallow like Smile I guess the turbo with its air suspension might be better but the S is not. But certainly goes like stink ..hope that helps

Cheers Swiss lad!

Everyone tells me that the air suspension is a must. I'm thinking of finding a cheap, fully loaded turbo for the winter... Good to know they go well!

well in your neck of the woods you will need it Smile

( dont tell anyone but thats where I am from originally though now a lapsed shandy drinking southerner Smile )

TBH the ride is great in the S but the turbo does come with a few more toys, e.g memory seat position , steering rake controls, different dash instrument cluster etc but it really comes down to the options that were specified at time of purchase. My wife's boss has an S but he has german style rear bumper with twin exhausts tips, different wheels and so on. So when buying second hand you need to search for what you want. Everything extra is a brucie bonus ! Very Happy

Swiss, did you ever get around to changing the B/C pillars to black? Thinking of doing this on mine but would probably go the vinyl route as removing the C pillar needs the glass to be removed.

Just wondering if you did it and if so, how?

I did try it for a test. I am crap at wrapping I will tell you that for nothing ! It looked ok but she is undecided so for now they have remained silver. But yes B pillar off the car ( really easy to do) but C pillar is a car job without doubt.

Here are the test pics

So following on from my purchase of some wheels for the wife's Cayenne, I decided these would be a good birthday present for her.

These were them when I got them

IMG_3112 by Chris Dodsworth, on Flickr

All looked fairly good but 3 of them had massive staining on the inside which wouldn't budge, like this

IMG_3186 by Chris Dodsworth, on Flickr

So to make them all match I painted all four of them on the inside

Masked

IMG_3191 by Chris Dodsworth, on Flickr

Primer

IMG_3285 by Chris Dodsworth, on Flickr

Wurth Silver, clear coat and then polished

IMG_3230 by Chris Dodsworth, on Flickr

One had bad kerb rash like this

IMG_3235 by Chris Dodsworth, on Flickr

IMG_3236 by Chris Dodsworth, on Flickr

So that was stripped down, masked and primer

IMG_3274 by Chris Dodsworth, on Flickr

Wurth silver, clear coat and polished again

Looks better, not perfect but not bad for a shed job !!

IMG_3413 by Chris Dodsworth, on Flickr

IMG_3412 by Chris Dodsworth, on Flickr

Cleaned them all and then as it was a present did a little bit of wrapping Smile

Do you think she will guess Very Happy

Floor Floor me too , found myself reading the whole thread , nice job Swisstony . I can feel a Cayenne coming on in the new year which is odd as I hated the shape when they first came out but seem to have got used to it now , mind you thought the same about the Panamera when it launched but getting used to that now as well. still undecided about getting a diesel or a GTS or a turbo need to do some more research I think I like the extra external trim on the GTS and the turbo but really like the prices of Diesel Question Question Dont know
