True (and long) story: I once gave a ride to two prostitutes and their Dog in my Cayman. I didn't know their profession until the very end of the ~5 mile drive. Made for an interesting night though.

spent an hour plus putting conditioner on all that interior leather. i can't belive how much surface they stitched over

if you ordered any Porsche with everything covered in leather and deviated stitching everywhere like these cars it would be in the $15k range - JUST for those options.

took the conditioner well but i think it will need another treatment tomorrow. sitting at the dealer this long has dried it out a lot.

there is some beautiful stitching and coverage and in the Venom Red it does look better than just good.

Since we're talking leather care, I want everyone to know that Meguiar's Gold leather care wipes suck. They leave shiny oily streaks on everything. I tried it on my Audi and my wife's Mazda and it's terrible. However, it seems to work better than Armorall wipes on hard plastic surfaces even though it's intended for leather LOL

C4, that leather is really showstopping. Did Bernard shield the scuffplate with clear plastic? It scratches like crazy if not, even with rubber soles. I have no idea how it happens, but it happens really fast!

yeah they starshielded it as the prep. i wack it everytime i get in but at least it doesn't scuff the leather. they should have left that piece on the 2014's instead of letting the accountants get their way.

Well I've had this before. It was intermittent like you described. The ECU threw the fault due to low resistance reading from the driver side seat belt pretensioner circuit. The fix was a replacement of the retractor unit.

Engine bay LED

I know this is a bit childish, but I couldn't resist. When I had the new sub installed, I asked them to run a red LED strip above the engine bay - comes on with the headlights and looks very 80's Miami coke scene - I love it!

Kinda have the "Knight Rider' effect in the top exhaust grills.

A little different, but I will allow it
