Default Pics of my new Cayenne

2003 Cayenne Turbo, 64,000 miles.
These are the pics from the dealer... I haven't taken any nice pics of it myself yet... waiting for that special moment.
Hopefully I'll get to drive it in some snow a little later and take some Instagram worthy ones.

Thanks. I had a blast going to work today in the snow. Iíve dreamed of owning a 4x4 for the snow since I was a kid. Then when I got on the highway and got some speed, the air suspension automatically lowered and whatayaknow, I was driving a Porsche too! Very happy with my descision.

Thanks.
As far as the pipes, you mean the coolant pipes? I asked the Indy mechanic to try to take a look when he replaced some ignition coils earlier this week but I forgot to ask him if he did. Well, at least I have AAA if the original hoses are still there. Still waiting for the title so I can look up the service history.

Yes. Coolant pipes under the intake.

There's a sticky at the top about them.

It includes an easy way to check them.

If they are original (plastic), I would strongly suggest replacing them immediately.
If they let go, they can potentially destroy the starter and damage the torque converter seal.

You will regret a blown coolant pipe regardless of a AAA membership. As has been mentioned, can cause other serious problems.

Thanks JC.
Matt, I read somewhere that someone raised up the suspension and was able to see something from the wheel well area. Well I only got my pants and sweatshirt that I just washed very dirty (my fault entirely).
So I tried the more conventional top-side route, but the car was needlessly high. Then I couldn't lower it without getting in and closing the door, but my jeans were filthy, So now I'm just worried and annoyed and back in my pajamas.
Anyway, I'll let everyone know what I eventually find.
Oh, btw, if you look in that pic of my engine, if you look to the left, you'll see a short piece of 2x4 wedged by the motor support arm thing. Maybe someone else knows why the indy mech. decided to put that there and presumably forgot it.

*Jean Marc not JC.
I have a Guatemalan friend named Juan Carlos and I confuse his name with my friend, Jean Carlos from France. I also know a Jean Marc, so that's the mental connection between the two.

Default At least I popped open my glove box.

Need to order a new latch. I was very happy to discover all of the owners manuals inside though! Was hoping for more, maybe some contraband of some sort. Oh well. Now Iíll know for sure thereís no way to skip through presets from my steering wheel. Like I did on my BMW made in 1995.
