    Miles—I thought I would do more but as the first season with the car closes, only did less than 1000 miles. Am the third owner. First owner in CA did 10,000, second owner 7000.

    From my experience, you should really use a dye for leather seats and trim. Black is an easy color to match.

    Hemmings Aricle

    There is a Z8 article in the new issue of Hemmings. It doesn’t have anything I hadn’t read before but presents a nice perspective. And it quotes Andrew on values.

    Also have a Cayenne GTS, a 2010 that has been a workhorse that I don’t want to part with. Have to say however that I have never had a vehicle that could chew through 4 tires as fast as a Cayenne.
