05' Porsche Cayenne 3.6 V6

So just purchased a tidy late 05' Cayenne with a '6 speed manual box' and spring suspension at a good price. 66k miles, full dealer history and has had the prop shaft done which I am told is a common but big expense beyond automatic box replacements and turbo inlets etc.

Does anyone have experience of the cayenne V6 and would you have the manual/spring suspension over the auto/air suspension?

I am planning to paint the callipers 918 style acid green and retrofit LED tail lamps to give a fresher look.

Love these old tanks. I had a similar age 3.2 v6 a few years back, felt indestructable and was a great family car. That is a very unusual manual box car. Will make it easier to give the engine a better work out (which it does need to get a shift on). They sound great too!

Ref the suspension, they do ride quite hard but it honestly never bothered me. I certainly slept a little easier knowing i was not at risk of a dead compressor or air struts....££££
