I traded my '08 Cayenne S for my X5. My Porsche dealer connected me with a BMW dealer (I've purchased 3 MBZ and 3 Porsches from him). Still have one Benz and one Pcar plus the X5. Porsche dealer bought the used Cayenne S from BMW dealer, certified it and now has it on his lot. So, he will make some $$ on the deal. Today I stopped by the Porsche dealer to drop off the rear seat center head rest from my Cayenne S. Was telling the sales manager about ordering the X 5 to my specs and taking delivery in 3 weeks. He could not believe it. He said Porsche's transport carrier in the US went bankrupt and they are having a helluva time getting cars transported from POE to dealers. Also said it's 3 months order to delivery for a new Cayenne and dealers are running out of Cayenne inventory. He has a backlog of orders. Like me, most people want a new car sooner rather than later. Opportunity knocks for BMW 'cause there aren't many choices for a performance SUV.
