CayenneS2006 replied to ManMN's topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)Hi, I have had it on my car for almost 2 years now ... I dont think there are disadvantages (none that I have encountered) ... Many advantages, though the best good thing that I could think of is the looks! add to that the wheel arch extentions and the result is really worth it ... which makes me wonder how come Porsche does not roll them out all looking like that.
I'm thinking of installing these stainless illuminated Door Entry Guards (http://www.suncoastparts.com/product/95504480000.html?Category_Code=955S_Lights) in my car but I was wondering if anyone knows if the lights can be changed... I have a custom made red interior and would have these installed if I can change the light to red! Any thoughts?
Thanks Dave, I actually ordered the car this way from the Porsche dealer! I think these would fall under the exclusive options. I know a company that does that here, but "here" for me is Dubai, UAE! These r actually the real thing, no stickers, just red trims and red leather.
As I said ... I highly recommend it ... just make sure the Mrs wont mind the extra growl as it might wake up the baby Funny enough ... I waited till the birth of my baby girl too
I am not sure if this will help a lot but this is all I could find on removing Door panels: http://www.fvd.de/de/en/Porsche-0/Cayenne_955-15-46/-/2006/group/show/VID_8757923-VCD_36420431-gid_75-sort_4-display_20/InnerDoorPanel.html
Well ... I finally did it and ventured into the tunning of my 06 Cayenne S ... and guess what??? it is really fun again I have always LOVED my cayenne since the day I took off the plastic off the chairs ... what's not to love? I spent three months researching on how I should order it and another 6 waiting for it to arrive ... I beleive it is a one of a kind with the amount of details put into it: Black on red interio ... red exterior parts ... most of the option list ticked ... I have never had a dull day ... till I was overtaken by another tuned 06CS ... so I decided that I wont take any of that anymore and did the following: 1- BMC Sport Air Filters 2- FVD "Brombacher" sport mufflers 3- FVD "Brombacher" Secondary Cat Bypass Pipes What I ended up with is a really, and I mean REALLY LOUD cayenne that scares Lambos off the street ... the growl is amazing ... and I can really feel a kick at low revs now ... there is no more lag and the car just jumps off ... I like it a lot ... Bottom line ... I really recommend these mods.
I cant find it in the owners manual for the 09 model ... yet again it is not there for the 06 model either? but it is found on the actual PCM! really weird to have the older version with more options ... no?
So! did you end up doing it? I am thinking of painting the interio of the lights as well. What would you advise? Do you have pics of the finished product?
I have started to hear a cluncking sound when I engage the reverse gear; I thought that might be a unique case but I was surprised that other owners are hearing the same sound. Is this a common issue? and if so, is it normal or can it be fixed? I also hear a very annoying squeeling sound from the discs at very low speed since the car was new. I have also changed front discs recently yet the sound is still there. Is this common? I am sorry to have been asking so many questions but I am so happy that I have finally found a forum for Cayenne owners that is both professional and friendly Thanks, Michel
I own a CayenneS 06 that has the option to set three different speed limits in the trip function in the PCM. I have recently advised my boss to go for a good deal on a CayenneS 09 from the dealer but he is now upset that he can not set the 3 different limits. Is this function removed from the PCM3? HE can still set 1 limit in the onboard computer but not in the PCM. Does anyone know how to do that? or is it just a missing option?
I had the same problem. Still comes and goes but I found that normal yet regular use (open/close) solves it ... that is till I forget to use it for a while and the sounds creeps back in. The dealer could not do anything it to it though I have taken it over 5 times and I get the: this is normal in this kind of weather excuse (I live in the UAE).
Has anyone tried painting the surroundings of the headlight in black? I am thinking of doing that to my CS06 as I really like this option on the Porsche Design 3rd Edition. Has anyone done that yet? Any thoughts?
