Congratulations, Greg! Wow, that was faster than I thought. But hey, welcome back (you never left, anyway)!

Details, please... (presumably same as last time, loaded minus PCS - seems like they're still building the same configurations?)

I remember reading when you had your first lx570, i had a feeling you would be back haha. As much as i love the Cayenne, i have always liked liked the LX models more, maybe it suits my driving more.

There was nothing wrong with the Porshe, it was fast and agile and made you feel like you could jump tall buildings. Quality was 1st rate and I had few complaints. It was a very fun vehicle to drive. Only complaint was on those trips from Jacksonville to Atlanta or beyond, you were a little less "fresh" at the end of the day. The" I can jump tall buildings" feeling comes at the price of comfort. I also never felt as safe in the S.

I just miss the the size, the weight and the majestic feel of the LX570. I have driven nothing else that is so comfortable on those longer trips or just running to the store for a bottle of wine. It has "feel" that does it for me and I want it back!

Am meeting the dealer today to give him a check and see how fast he can get the concealed Passport radar/laser detector installed and ready for delivery. Pictures to follow!

Congratulations, having owned a 2012 Cayenne, I really understand. There is nothing like the LX!

Thanks, we have twin LX units!! I picked it up yesterday, around 3pm, and it was very nice to get back behind the wheel. Just the keyless feature was welcome. It will take me awhile to learn to not take my key out of my pocket before getting in. The ride is so smooth and I got half way home before I realized it was in sport mode!

I could not help myself and while she was clean, I waxed her from one end to the other. I consider it therapy and the black paint really likes the wax. Anyway glad to be back!
