Trading 05 S for 04 Turbo - Worth it or not?

Recommended Posts

Question for the masses -

I have an 05 with 16K miles on it - 85% loaded (wood, nav etc,).

Really want a turbo but where to pricey when I bought my 5.

I have an op to do a lateral swap for an 04T loaded with 42K miles.

Both are out of warranty so no issues there.

So - consensus? Worth it for the extra juice??? Anything with the 04T that can hurt me in the pocket region?

Any flaws in 04 that I should know about (besides the CD vs DVD issue)?

roxboxxx -

You probably have not received any replies here because you posted this in the DIY forum in lieu of the Cayenne discussion forum.

Is your '05 an 'S' or a V6? I've always wanted a turbo as well, but couldn't justify the additional price tag. If you current Cayenne has only 16K on the odometer, I would have a tough time trading it for a turbo with 42K. I love driving my V6 and the 'S' has more than enough power for me. Are the conditions of the interior/exterior on the vehicles similar?

Where are you at in considering the trade?

All the best,

Bill :beer:

Whoops - My bad on the post. Yeah it drove my buddies TT and I am hooked. I decided to pass on the 04 and started digging into a possible 05 or 6.

Will post my experience when its done. I was in the biz years ago and still have buds that let me know the auction pricing. Armed with this - I will prob find the right deal.

What I won't do is get in one at all costs - because that will be a let down for sure. Right now in my area there are about five 45K 04 TT's selling flat retail for $31K - i'm not jumping

at those so I know I am still in control of my faculties :)

Yes, V8 Cayenne S has plenty power for myself.

The only thing I like about Turbo is the front bumper :) I'm planning to do swap my front bumper someday *if and only if* I locate the same color turbo bumper (which doesn't need to get involved with the bodyshop painting.) :D

If I were you, I would keep S for now and move on to 2009 or 2010 GTS after few years.
