Into OPC Solihull Wed for a major service they've offered me a Cayenne or Boxster. Plumped for the Cayenne as I fancy something different. Are they easy to drive? Auto's I would think. Used to a Manual!

Yes, very easy to drive, but a bit big for parking, although I think the OPC ones normally come with parking sensors.
Be careful with kerbing the wheels.

The main issue is the brakes have a lot of servo assist.
Good for when you are doing 100 and want to stop (on private road), but bloody lethal when you first get in after a 911.
If you press the pedal like on a 911 you will headbut the windscreen. Have fun.

i had a brand new Boxster S for a day from them and couldn't for the first few miles work out what was 'wrong'. Then realised it has 'suspension' and was leaning alot more than i am used to. Quite good fun but did feel enclosed in it and was glad to pick mine up again to be honest.
