Check also the same comparo made by Chris Harris. Always witty and straight-up:

"Oh dear, and so another tire dies."

The pipes are black. Sounds like Roland is running the akra exhaust.

I see chrome tip pipes in the walk-around (4:53)
Is that a different car?

Sounds like akra, but you're right that the chrome tips are there at the walk around.

If back seats, decent storage room and the opportunity to enjoy the ride with the significant other + children together, are part of the equation, the Cayman R ain't no competition despite its qualities.

+2. Mahlzeit, we have the same configuration, wife, one 4 year old, another 2 year old, baby seats and trollers. Check this from a recent vineyard visit:

Edit: I was happily surprised when I first changed my tires with PSS and all stock four easily fit in the car. Then, 10 days ago I was really surprised when I managed to carry stock mufffler and mid pipe back home with my 1M after the install of Evolve and N55 mids

I barely got one and feel lucky for it but great point. It did stink that they made so few in that respect.

A friend of mine with a Caymen S, not R, wants an 'upgrade'. Asked me if he should upgrade to an R or a 1M.
I said 1M if he can find one.

I'm going to send him this link.

I was never this happy with a car purchase before!
