Hi Everyone,
Just about to lock down my order for a mamba green CT 4S. I have owned a no Bi-Turbo A7 completion models, all with Adaptive cruise control and all the safety features, Bose audios and full leather interior. My last car was a 2019 CLS AMG53 with all the above features and a burmester sound system which was fantastic. I have nearly made all my choices but am conflicted re burmester in taycan because of cost issues. If I pick this option then selecting leather pushes it a bit over my budget and if i select leather then will have to pick a Bose audio which is fine but is not as good as the burmester in the Merced… Also in either case what would the forum suggest the best combination of interior with mamba green, standard or leather (not olea). Thanks for Your help

In my opinion, the Burmester while excellent, is severely overpriced when compared to the Bose. If the Burmester cost say, $2000 over the Bose I probably would have bought it. But nearly $6K!?!?, forget it.

I know there will be those on the forum who disagree, but the $5700 premium of the Burmester doesn’t buy you that much over the Bose, which sounds terrific on its own and punches well over its weight class.

The Bose is excellent, which makes that with the full leather the smarter choice.

Nothing against the Burmester, it’s no doubt it’s amazing, but you’re paying a lot for diminishing returns.

Vote for the leather too, and I didn’t even get the leather. The Bose system is extremely well tuned and the burm system is not as good as the comparable 3D burm system in Mercedes.

even funnier note the mid tier burm system in Mercedes is actually just a tuned HK system.

I'm a big advocate for Burmester and had it in previous P-cars. In the case of the Taycan, get the full leather and BOSE. In my 22+ years in the OE and aftermarket automotive building and enthusiast arenas, this is the best BOSE installed in a Porsche.

While I adore my burmeister system, the full leather would be more important to me to spec…in a car at this level, it is a must for me. I haven’t compared the Bose to Burmeister, so don’t know how it is, but have to imagine it’s more than acceptable. I’m not gonna lie though, the Burmeister makes my musical life much more rich!

Thanks a lot for the helpful suggestions. If money was no object would have ticked both leather and burmester but will go with Bose and leather

I struggled with this decision too. I felt like black goes good w green, but not a fan of black interiors in this california heat. I saw some with the watermelon theme, mamba on red interior, which also looked good, but didn’t seem cohesive. Then after a few weeks, the idea of truffle brown popped in my head.Now I can’t think of any other combo that would compare.Green and brown is a very classic color combo, and every review of the truffle that I’ve read has been great. Mamba/truffle all the way! BUT, one downside, is the truffle comes standard with neodyme, which I think looks great, but might not look as great without the burmester. Burmester gets the neodyme treatment, and the Bose mesh just looks like something is missing there. Just my 2 cents!

I think that's a well-balanced spec- it would be odd to have an extravagant audio system but only the base leather.

I have the Burmester and really like it. I had a loaner Taycan with the Bose which I did 5000 km roadtrip in and was very impressed by it.

The Bose system in the Taycan is much better than the Bose I had in my S7. No regrets going with it in my opinion.
