How's it going everyone?

Currently shopping for a Cayman S. Been looking for one in the 80s with PTV/PASM/Sport Chrono/PDK/Sport Exhaust. Also not in a shade of grey or silver. Been a bit harder than I imagined.

Anyways, I'm looking forward to chatting with everyone, especially after I get my hands on a car. Mainly going to be using it as an "occasional daily/weekend/track" car. My "daily daily" is a Golf R.

Take it easy!

Welcome! If you have the patience, ordering exactly what you want is a pretty nice way to go. Waiting is the downside :)

If you don't mind me asking, what part of Texas are you in? There are quite a few of us in Dallas and Houston that are fairly active on the forum.

I'm in the Austin area. Lots of great driving roads here!

First off: welcome!

Second: You're likely going to be hard pressed to find a 718 S with that many performance options priced in the 80s. Dealers will stock either 'stripper' or loaded cars in colors that are easy sells -- not much else. My advice is threefold:
1). If you're dead set on keeping up the looking, I'd also target builds close to, but not exactly like, what you're looking for and try to negotiate the price down. You will likely be able to get 6-7 percent off MSRP from a dealer willing to 'play ball', but it will be a fight.
2). Look outside Texas, particularly to non-saturated markets (Oklahoma is a great example. So is Kansas City). Determine where you'd be willing to travel to to get a car, and look there, too.
3). Or: Order a car exactly to your specs. The 2.5-4-month wait is ****, but it's a fun **** because you KNOW that in the end you're getting exactly what you want.

Good luck!
