So I made the decision last year that I was going to buy a Cayman in the spring. I have been keeping an eye on 987.2's and 981's to watch prices and see what is available. As mentioned before I was going to wait until the spring because I live in snowy Michigan, but a car came up in my search that was both in my price range and had the 2 options I really wanted (SC and PASM). I had to move on it and ended up putting a deposit down on the phone.
So I took a couple days off work, booked a flight from Michigan to South Carolina and bought the car.
Details of the car:
2014 Cayman S
Black with black interior
20" Carrera wheels
Bi-Xenon with PDLS
Sport Design steering wheel
Premium Package with 14-way Power Sports Seats
Infotainment Package with BOSE surround sound
I drove 14 hours spread out over 2 days. 6 hours the first day and 8 hours the next. I snapped a pic every time I stopped to stretch my legs. Photos can be found here: http://imgur.com/a/HD2cT
The drive was very entertaining and I learned a lot about the car during our 14 hours together. My only complaints are that the door armrest is too stiff and the PCM froze when selecting satellite radio stations. There are some things I didn't figure out and had a few questions.
Is there a trick to getting the car in reverse? The other gear shifts are so satisfying and it feels like I have to force the car into reverse. Am I doing something wrong?
Can I get the car to resume my bluetooth audio when getting into the car? It seems to always revert back to the tuner.
I was trying to choose satellite radio stations from the station list but the station list kept freezing and getting stuck. It would take a little while for the system to catch back up. Can this be fixed with an update or something?
Can I just permanently leave my wipers in the automatic mode or should I move the stalk to "off" when the rain stops?
It appears that my windows have a slight tint to them. Is this from the factory or did the previous owner do this?
Where do you put your sunglasses? Am I going to have to buy one of those sunglass clips that go on the visor?
Can I put a square winter wheel/tire setup without messing up the stability control? I want smaller & thinner wheels with thinner tires without changing the outer diameter of the rear tires. Thinner tires work better in snow.
Can I change the background of the nav screen like I can on my Mustang?
The wing seems to go up around 75-76mph. It also seems to lower mpg's a bit. The problem is that I live in Michigan and our speed limits are being raised to 75mph. Will my wing always be up on the highway? Can this be changed?
Sorry for all the questions!
I had a blast the last couple days! Thanks for looking!
