Porsche's Cayenne is nothing like a Ferrari SUV would be. The Cayenne can actually go offroad and is very good at it too. I respect the Cayenne highly for it's abilities. It may not be the prettiest of them all, but I don't think it looks horrible like most. Check it out on topgear if you want to see it in action offroad.

Are you upgrading your entire set of wheels (tires and rims)? How big? What are the ratings on them? I may have to buy brand new ones soon for my car. I drive way too much. The sucky part to all this is, I can't rotate my tires!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ford does need a new symbol, it just doesn't flow with their cars. De-badging FTW!

I was using just plain ass dial on my car.

I ran out so now I have this new Simple Green car wash that is biodegradable and such. I'm hoping for less water spots so I dont use as much quick detail, and I hope it will be easier on my wax.

Yeah, I saw that episode. A old Range Rover could clear those two hills when the Cayenne couldn't. It may have some form of offroad capability, but if I really wanted something for offroading, I'd rather get a Range Rover. Theres some actual offroading roots there.
