Default Rennfax near Akron, Oh needed

Cross post from the Cayenne forum...bouncing between Audi Avants, and the Cayenne. Specifically a 2009 GTS, with a 6 MT. Anyone in the greater Akron area available to take a look at this, prior to a PPI?

Naturally, compensation and eternal gratitude will follow.

PM for details
thanks

lousy cell phone pics from the salesman only so far...kinda meh. Just came out of the detail shop late this afternoon. Lights look characteristically yellow, I donít know if the lousy angle is adding to the effect. That is a known issue with these beasts. Christ itís tough inserting images on this crappy iPad sometimes. Not thrilled with the silver exterior, would have preferred something else maybe.

Short answer is No, never even ridden in ANY Cayenne before. Been beating the bushes for Audi RS Avantís, in most vintages, looked at a couple cool modded Volvo AWD stick wagons(love that in-line 5 turbo)looked again at 04 Golf Rís, .then looked into the GTS. Looking for any 8-10+YO vehicle is the classic needle in the haystack endeavor. Number of owners, maintenance history, mods...you know the dance.
This GTS is shown as a 2 owner, lease/lease...essentially one owner, serviced since delivery at the same Pcar dealer. Every single maintenance record since new, well known vehicle/ owner to the dealership. The service advisor has been extremely gracious with his time, essentially stated the owner took care of the car...did everything that was needed. The Ute does need a few small things, it was just serviced at the Pcar dealer on 12/8/18...the service dude was surprised that it was traded just a couple weeks later. Has a split in the intermediate pipe between the header, and cat...and bad tires. Apparently these things eat tires.

I hope to drive down/over this Saturday, ute is located near Cleveland. A fellow rennlister is looking at it for me on Thursday. I put a refundable deposit on it today...just as soon as they would let me. Understood, and agreed that I can walk at anytime...for any reason.

Ute has a few options that I had wanted, not loaded by any means.

More details to follow is this goes forward.

Cool. I ask because I've heard that the shifter is kind of weird. Friend of mine who had a now-dead Cayenne Turbo and has a current gen Cayenne Turbo said he wasn't overly fond of the feel. He owns something like six or seven manual cars, many of them Porsches, and loves to stir the gears.

Cats out of the bag here, dealer put pics/details on line.

Theoretically an honest used car dealer(smirking as I type) who openly stated that even if someone offers above asking...I still have first dibs. They gave me a pretty fair number for trading the rim bending, inconsistent boost, torque steering supposedly AWD Focus RS also.

Heading to Cleveland tomorrow night. Wish,me luck.
