A simple question here but one that I can't find the answer to despite many google searches.

I'm looking at buying an '04 Cayenne Turbo here in Dubai (it's acutally a US car though)

The seller only has one key (a flip out blade)

I'm assuming there should be more than this... how difficult is it to code a new key? can I buy a blank on ebay, have the blade cut and then code it to the car myself or is it a dealer only job... Should I have some kind of master key as well?

Lastly, how do I tell if the car has PSM / what other features should I be looking for on an '04?

I ended up walking away from the first car I was looking at and I've now bought another car.

2005 CTT

Gunmetal grey with black ruffled leather

134k KM

most history present, though no record of the coolant tubes being done.

It's had a fair amount of work done at ARM (assuming that's Alex Renner?) already so I think I might have them inspect it fully at the same time as the next service.

Thanks for the advice all.

Yep, that's Alex Renner. I sold my 05 CTT (195,000km) to a colleague and it's still on original coolant pipes, cardan shaft and transmission valve body, and I know of others on 150k+ km still on original coolant pipes. I was doing the Abu Dhabi commute so 5k km/month and a 20k km service 3 times a year; it always cost a bit at service time but never anything in between. I was always happy that the car was in the best possible shape.
