Reasons (apart from the Beluga Whale guff) for not liking the Pan-Am appreciated darling x
I would also be worried about Porsche parts prices having heard a few horror stories. I don't know how much truth there is in them. Having said that, Audi parts aren't exactly a bargain either. You're going to have to stump up a grand and a half for a Porkcom, too.

I just wish they were more attractive. It looks like they made no effort to design a good looking 4 door car. The exact opposite is the Aston Martin Rapide which pulls off the 4 door conversion perfectly. IMO. They're a bargain at the moment, too, but they are RWD. I thought you'd be all over RWD - they are a lot of fun to drive.

The new Panamehs are very good looking indeed. Pricey, though.

Porkcom? Durametric is £300 or so, I bought one for diagnostics before darling thought better of that, so I sold it! Prices aren't bad I found compared to Audi for the majority of bits and the Pan-Am would be going straight on to Porsche extended warranty.

Sadly for me, it is looking more and more like we will be going RS6, with the prmise from bint that I get a Gen2 Pan-Am or similar in a couple of years.

Pan Turbo S hybrid is something else entirely, the audi cannot come close on feel, steering or performance out of the box. However it is Phucking massive. I parked at a supermarket, about 2/3 squeezes in the space.

Well, I hate my wife and most of you lot too ;). Since she is knocked up with my spawn, I let her have some input in to the choice of car. She was fine with me going with the Pan-Am, but she absolutely loves our RS6, it is her daily driver.

Based on pretty well that alone, I bought her this, on the basis that I get dibs on a Gen2 Pan-Am in a couple of years - https://www.jct9.com/audi-rs6-avant-tfs ... ey-6369370

Picking her up on Saturday in theory. What the hell am I going to do with two of them now?

I think the fat backside on the Pan-Am looks ten times better that the awfully squared off backend on the C7 (I think the designer had enough and just drew a straight line across the back to finish quickly), yet here we are.

Yeah, the rear of the C7 is pretty goping.

Was watching a "How it's made" on the panamera yesterday, decent machine.
previous- 205 gti, 306 gti, 309 gtiGoodwood, S3, S4 V8 avant.
Now- C5 RS6 Misano red avant. Getting close to how I want it.

If you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there!

Yep, the interior build quality craps all over the C7 imo and the rear looks like crap, luckily for me I won't be able to see it and I will most likely be driving the C5 more but vee shall see. As said, only a couple of years to wait hopefully until I can get what I actually want ;).

I think when that time comes, Brutus might finally have to go to a new home.

Had any thoughts on mods at this early stage?
