Re: Fourteen way seats

Well spotted. But it doesn't explain why the seat backs are different, and different in a different way to the 14 way seats. If there's a logic to the passenger seat back being inward curving with 14 way seats, whilst the driver's seat is outward curving, why are the standard seats the opposite way ...

Fourteen way seats

A bit of trivia really, but puzzling. At the weekend our eagle-eyed daughter spotted that the plastic shells on the back of the front seats are different shapes. The passenger seat curves inward about halfway down, but the driver's seat back curves out. Curious, she then searched Macan reviews, and ...

Re: Nav girl pronunciation

My favourite is Way-eece - for Wales - when joining the M4 westbound from Bath. To be fair, Wales is mis-spelt in the system as Waies.

Re: Insurance 30% hike...

Premiums can be surprisingly sensitive to small reductions in estimated annual mileage. I've previously tended to err a bit on the high side with my estimate, but this year was able to reduce the renewal premium with NFU by 5% after shaving off a couple of thousand miles. The policy T&Cs state that ...

Re: Huge Cost for Wheel Alignment

:shock: :shock: Just had the GTS into the OPC for a wheel alignment. There has been some confusion as their system had it in for a check up just to look at the wheels :x So they can't do it today and I over on a long drive fro a couple of days. More wear on the front outside shoulders. :( Anyway, t...

Re: All wheel drive indicator

This happened when I was driving at PEC a couple of years ago. We pulled off the track and the instructor radioed base for advice after switching off and restarting didn't work. I think the advice was switch off, remove key, then restart. That worked. I got the impression from the conversation with ...

Re: Cabin Ventilation Fan Noise

The AC in our Macans is cr4p, there is no other way of describing it. They must have a far better system that they install for Macans going to hot climates because there is no way ours could cope with a 30+ degree C outside temperature. Mine is struggling today despite the outside air temp showing ...

Bonnet safety catch just sliding across without releasing bonnet. I can’t see any way to get in with a screwdriver etc, looks like a visit to the dealers.
2018 Macan S any body else had this problem ?
Have you tried lifting the bonnet slightly whilst sliding the catch?

Re: Fuel consumption

Our S will be 2 years old on 1 Sept and has now done just over 15,000 miles. We do quite frequent trips between the Scottish Borders and home in Dorset, a distance of about 400 miles, and always achieve at least 34mpg on that journey, even laden and with some fairly spirited driving on the usually v...

Re: Petrol S - resonance on acceleration

I picked up my new petrol S today and noticed it within 5 minutes of driving from the dealers. Last time I had a noise like this was on a 1998 BMW 520i. After a year or revisiting the dealer 6 or 7 times the fault was identified as air con pipes oscillating at certain engine speeds. The fix was to ...
