Annnnnd, it's great. Install was pretty easy, minus the horrible German > English translation. But, once you figure out where all of the sensors are for the ride height, it's a decent paced process.

My only gripe is that the app is pretty clunky and slow, but I spoke with someone from CETE who says that they're in the process of a more streamlined application.

The air tank in the car is suuuuuper skinny. Not used to that, coming from big, fat 5 gallon tanks.

Also...got to reduce a little weight. This is after taking off only the front and rear underbody cladding. Gross.

@Raek , I'm quite curious to know your perspective on Porsche's factory-supplied suspension settings. Do you feel they are incorrect for the vehicle and how you drive it? or is the CETE system primarily for aesthetics?

Me? I'm never happy with anything as-is. However, I've made sure that the "lowered" and "low" settings are only a few mm lower than OEM. Usually, production vehicles for the public are never anywhere near their actual ride heights for performance, anyway (unless we're counting the GT cars).

The pictures above are of the car in "show mode", which is at the lowest it can possibly go...I wouldn't drive it like this ;)

That amount of trapped road grit is astonishing, especially for such a new Taycan. I'm curious if some of the rattles that others are reporting are due to vibrating road grit. Now I'm going to ask the detailers to pull my Taycan's cladding and document what they find.

Right? It was great getting all of that gnarliness in my snout, haha. I can only imagine what's trapped in the rear bumper cladding!
