New to the Porsche family; 2017 Cayman S

Well I pulled the trigger on a CPO’ed 2017 Cayman S. I had no intention of doing this a few weeks ago but had been losing my patience with Lexus regarding what I considered a warranty issue and they did not. So Lexus lost a customer and Porsche gained one. Either way, I’m not looking back and can’t wait for the fun times ahead.

The Cayman is equipped with almost everything I was interested in. Sport Chrono, full leather, PASM sport suspension, sport exhaust, Bose, PDK, Carrera classic wheels, premium package plus, and a few other knick knacks. I have a thing for silver cars and this car scratched that itch as well. I have already made a few changes to the car as I went to the colored center caps and clear side markers. Sometime this weekend I’ll get around to getting a few more photos up with the changes.

Very nice-welcome. Sounds like a good list of options, many of which are how I typically option my Caymans. You will thoroughly enjoy the experience and will look for more and more excuses to just drive it.............

Thanks. Mileage was 14400ish. I am already enjoying the car immensely. It is very different than anything I have had in the past and my first time going German. The overall quality and attention to detail is amazing in my opinion.

The only thing it is missing that I do wish it had is apple car play. It does not appear there is an easy solution to this after the car is built. So, I’ll be going with the standard Bluetooth streaming to have Waze running. The app has saved me from several tickets to date.

Congrats! Beautiful car.


Apple Car Play can be fitted after the fact for around $1000 no problem. Just call a dealer service department, they should know or at least be able to find out.

Thanks.

On the Apple CarPlay topic... I have read quite a bit and got a little information here and there. What I havenít seen is anyone who has actually added it and posted. Most of what I have seen is just people talking about adding CarPlay. I do need to just call the dealership. What I got on my way out after purchase was it cost ďa lotĒ to add it.

Got around to snapping a couple pictures of the clear side makers and colored center caps installed. They just look right.

Also got around to getting a new family picture! Loving the new car.
