Well, duh. Lol.

Middle aged guy in an SL550 is another word for "Cha Ching!" to those guys.

One thing about the Porsche that I don't like...if you get a tan interior, they use WAY TOO MUCH tan. It's not just the seats, but the carpet, the dash, and almost all the trim. It tans me out...

Sad indeed! I thought you had ordered a 550xi. Hopefully, you can find an eager Porsche buyer.

I have my doubts whether this guy is for real. He has posted here and another forum, trolling ones. http://f10.5post.com/forums/showthre...3#post10423723

Check out time sequence and his posts. He's probably laughing with the posts garnered in this thread.

ps He had also put in a deposit, so he said for the 550

BMW323 thinks everyone is a troll. He doesn't even know what the word means. Can't see how you are a troll for selling your Panamera. It's not like you are selling a BMW going to a different brand etc.
Do me a favour and just post a picture of the car your selling to shut him up.

Yes you are a troll this I've no doubt and since you're so brilliant, help him do the necessary with the photo of my Panamera 4s http://www.google.com.sg/imgres?imgu...QEwBQ&dur=2784

So you had doubt of brett being a troll or not but decided to call him a troll anyways?
Good move in dispelling BMW owners are cocks and welcoming another BMW owner to the brand.

Yes this is exactly what I felt when I tried it. I thought I'd rent one in Europe for a couple of weeks while on vacation, but my wife didn't feel comfortable at all.

Beautiful combo though, exactly how I'd want my Panny. I'm shocked that you're so apparently unhappy with it, as owners seem to mostly think the car is one of the bests that they've ever had it seems.

I'd take that baby off your hands if I was in the market it (i.e, would want to $$$$$pend and jus$$$$$tify that pri$$$$$$$$$$e).

I'll put a bid in at $65K. You never know!

Nice car and the best color on that car. Maybe you should list the options and put an asking price for the car.

Brett,

if you find the seats uncomfortable then I'd consider talking to your dealer about swapping them out for one of the optional seats or posting on Rennlist/6Speedonline to see if an owner with the alternative seats (and same interior color) is interested in a swap. The other alternative might be to talk to your dealer (and other dealers) to see who will get you into a different car with different seats at lowest cost. With you car being so new and with dealers wanting to meet targets I am sure someone will play ball. Check to see if there is any trunk money on Panamera's, there are some end of year specials on other models right now and it may be that you can take advantage of those to soften the blow. That said, I will say I've not heard any other complaints about the seats in the Panamera, quite the reverse they are known for being comfortable. Have you checked with the dealer to see if yours have some manufacturing issues? Either way, I'd think you could do better than taking a 14k bath - hope something works out for you.

Yeah, the seats seemed so comfortable to me. Never heard of them being uncomfortable on the Panny.

If I was in the market, I'd be all over that car though.

Feeling lonely in the list? You should buy the Pana off Brett since it's 14k off. I have to admit I don't know where you've stayed at and no idea how much you make I'll see how this develops Brett should know his stuff, as he says he has owned 2008 M3, 2010 MB E550, Infiniti M35 ...

LOL You can't even be a man when you made a mistake and called Brett a troll and apologize, but you instead deny it and then try to kiss Bretts butt after he posted the photo.
Then you go and try to deflect attention off of your ignorance and post a quote from another thread that I was in when I responded to an arrogant BMW driver who said he could stay in places I couldn't even though he had no clue where I could and could not afford to stay.

Really thanks again for reinforcing the BMW **** image atleast in your case.
