Hi all-
i picked up my new to me Cayenne this past Thursday. I love it! I came from a BMW X5 xDrive50i, but was getting bored and wanted to come back to a Porsche. This one has all the options I was looking for, some of the main ticket items: PASM w/ Air, Entry and Drive, Crested Headrests, Premium Plus package. Below are so pics!

Thats the message displayed when the air suspension reaches maximum height. In one of your pics it looks as though the rear suspension is raised to max height, while the front is normal. Maybe a height sensor issue at that wheel.

That seems REALLY high - especially the rear. I can crawl under mine when it's fully raised - but I can't recall that much fender gap at the rear. I think you need a diagnostics tool to suss out what's up with it, or find someone with a Porsche specific tool.

Agree...in that last pic, that height is NOT normal. In fact I don’t think mine went that high even in the extreme off road ride height setting. And in any case, the vehicle should at least be level all the way around. This looks like an old Camaro running Highjacker air shocks in the rear.

Definitely get it checked out.

Also looking at your window sticker, wow, the Premium Package Plus is really expensive on the S model!
