Thanks for all the compliments guys.

It's Lemon Dakota Leather with Black interior, Burr Walnut trim and Anthracite Head Lining.

The guy at the dealership recommended this combo.

When we picked it up yesterday the dealer said it had generated the most interest in the showroom all day apart from an M6 Convertible!

Regards

Chris

Cheers

The dealer fitted the Blacklines and the spoiler before we picked it up!

The delay was waiting for it to get light this morning so I could get the camera out.

Cobalt blue would be my choice for the Cayman. Lovely car and colour!

Blows the old one into the weeds. Quality and refinement has gone way up, the 2.0TCDi is sooo much better than the old 1.8TDCi and doesn't disappear in a cloud of soot every time you floor it. Ride quality is improved and you've got comfort, normal and sport settings for the (electric) power steering.

But... the centre console is angled towards the passenger, the handbrake is right next to the passenger seat and the PDC beeps are so quiet you have to turn the stereo down to hear them. ... and the brakes are as wooden as ever

(my Dad got one in December)

Are you not worried those flags might crack under your car's weight.

Beautiful car. You must be on a high!!!
Those blacklines look fantastic.

I'm hopefully getting mine on the 16th, can't wait. Day and night it's all I can think about!!!

Out of interest why did you go for the SE model? Is it cos you are planning on modding it up different to the aero kit? Or do you prefer the SE model?

Thanks mate.

The only reason for SE spec it that it is a company car. I was restricted by my allowance . Beleive me if I could have got something better like Chris's M Sport then I wouldn't have hesitated. Saying that it is a beast despite the spec :rocks:
