New Cayenne S

Hello All,
 
New to the forum and just hoping for some advise please? Have recently ordered a new Cayenne S, and with it being my first Porsche I was hoping for a bit of advice on spec choices which are certainly extensive
 
My order is due to lockdown any day now with a build date towards the end of September and delivery in early October.
 
So far I have selected;
 

Moonlight Blue Metallic
Privacy glass 
Roof rails painted in black (high-gloss) 
Exterior package in Black (high-gloss) 
Adaptive air suspension with levelling system and height adjustment incl. Porsche Active Suspension Management
Sport Chrono Package including mode switch
Power steering Plus 
21-inch RS Spyder design wheels incl. wheel arch extension in exterior colour
Lighting and vision 8IS LED headlights incl. Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS)
Automatically dimming exterior and interior mirrors
ParkAssist (front and rear) including Surround View
Porsche InnoDrive including adaptive cruise control
Lane Change Assist
Heated windscreen 
Comfort seats front (14-way, electric) with memory package
Seat heating (front and rear) 
Heated steering wheel 
Four-zone automatic climate control 
Porsche Crest embossed on headrests (front and outer rear)
9VL BOSE® Surround Sound System 
 
Have I missed any important options or selected anything that’s not really that necessary. It quite easy to get carried away and I still have a slight nagging doubt about  not having selected the panoramic roof.
 
Thanks
 
Michael

    I've had my Turbo Cayenne since 2011 & its an amazing car.
    I personally can't live without a sunroof, so yes, I think the Panoramic sunroof is essential. 
    I had torque vectoring as an extra, but don't if that's now standard or available on your engine size.
    If you're planning to keep the car for a while, have exactly the options you want.

    It is your car .. so spec it the way you want
     
    My current car was a Dealer Principle car so I did not spec it (but I did find it after searching for a list of must have things) and has things I would never have considered but would now "not live without" ie it has the Pano roof, which I love so will have that my next one, it also has red seat belts and Privacy glass  which I would never have considered, but would also be on my list to order now.  I also have comfort access, which has made me loose numerous finger nails as I don't have it on the Boxster GTS and forget when trying to open the doors on that car .. While nice its probably something I would skip next time
     
    Most folk consider the "must haves" on a Cayenne as
    Adaptive air suspension (PASM)
    Power steering Plus
    LED headlights incl. Porsche Dynamic Light System
    Automatically dimming exterior and interior mirrors
    One of the ParkAssist systems as they are big beast to park without - the rear camera one does its job
    BOSE® Surround Sound System
    Heated windscreen
    Not the Standard 8 way seats
    Heated steering wheel
     
    As I never have folk in my back seats I personally would not consider rear seat heating or 4 Zone AC, however you may have back seat users so may have different needs
     
    Had a Loaner with InnoDrive and while fun for a bit I soon got bored with it, but nowadays I don't do lots on Motorway Miles.  While a techy at heart the only driver assist I would consider is Adaptive Cruise
     
    HTH .. enjoy your car

    I'd agree with G Davison .. PASM is brilliant, and ventilated seats are worthwhile.

    Hi Monty
    I specced my Cayenne which was delivered in April. Great Car. I would concur with above and have the panoramic roof, an essential on my previous Macan as well. Adaptive cruise is a must in my opinion but would drop the INO. Not convinced by heated steering in British climate. Also speed limit advisor very useful when driving on unfamiliar roads. Rear view camera ?
    Tough choices... enjoy

    Thank you for all your feedback, much appreciated. Coming from an SQ7 that is fully loaded, its tough to make do without some options that you become used.
    But think i will add the panoramic roof and hope that the order locks soon before i can do anything else to increase the costs

    It does smart a little when you realise that pretty much any Porsche needs about 1/3rd of its base price in Optional extras adding

    It was certainly a shock to the system to see some of the things listed as optional extras on a car of that value. But thankfully I had been forewarned by a friend.

    Bizarrely Porsche Reading rang me out of the blue this week and they had manufacturing slot availability if I took delivery before end of year, so just spec'd up and ordered a new Hybrid and did not include Adaptive cruise as decided the front radar dome made the grill look a tad ugly for me

    My car has a build date of next Tues 17th, any idea how long it usually takes from build to delivery at the OPC?
