Cayenne better sprinkled on meat and eaten than driven - overpriced Touareg/Q7.

If you're antsy for a luxury SUV consider an MDX (they run forever), an older gen X3 with the 3.0 or the 09 X5 35d they have there instead.

Get a hold of Anthony at A&L in Palatine , 847-991-5620 He will take care of you, Intake and Cobb you should be able to do but downpipes his price is well worth not doing it yourself.

I hear the transmissions in the older ones don't hold up though, replacement seems pretty standard every 20k miles or so

I would personally only get a Cayenne if a bit newer, 09+. They have their fair share of issues, and being out of warranty would be a headache. I remember you mentioned interest in an E46 M3. Do that and keep for a few years. Then buy an '11+ Cayenne down the road!

not everyone is as full retard as you - I'd have kept regardless of the fact that I commend the financial responsibility in your decision to let it go.
