Thought I would make it official and attach a few pictures. I am still breaking it in but I really love this car! I am a former BMW 335i coupe owner that ran the JB3 tune but the Cayman S really has a much better "connected to the road" feel.

This is a great site and I am really glad to be here!

Welcome. May I suggest you really study the owner's manual as there are many nifty features to discover. I was discovering neat new stuff months after I got my Cayman S. Also suggest a mini-vacation to drive teh car. You will return smitten. I still am smitten. Drive safely. Ed

How does it compare to your 335? I will be coming from a 335 as well, but wanted to get your feedback on overall comparison.

Thank you all for the compliments! I have browsed the manual but as suggested I will take a closer look.

Really a totally different feel from my 335i. The handling of the Cayman S is much more precise, the ride is of course a little stiffer and tighter and I am pleasantly surprised by the engine's power. The only time I feel a slight loss of power is from a 40mph roll but then again I was running the JB3. The PDK is a real gem especially with the sport button activated.

I swear, the Cayman is anticipatory in the sense that once you decide where you want to go, the car's reflexes are so quick that it feels like it is steering itself - If that makes sense.

The exhaust note is very nice but I am strongly considering an aftermarket exhaust.

I think I remember your name from the E90 Forum.

Haha nice, yup E90post. I'm looking to get an 08 cs in white on blk or grey, man it's hard to find!

Hopefully, I can join P-Car club soon! :cheers:

Nice car, enjoy the many great rides. It always surprises me how porsche can keep coming up with original, but great looking wheels. I must admit I would struggle with the break in period, way to impatient. Have fun.
