Re: Engine knocking at idle

Hey Roy

Absolutely pigeon noise! OPC Leeds are washing their hands of it and saying it’s not a fault. I’m now in conversations with Porsche UK

Re: Engine knocking at idle

Advise needed.. So the engine noise saga goes on. Yesterday I got my car back from Porsche after it’s 2nd visit for the weird engine noise/sound at Rickover/idle. Long story short is. First visit they acknowledged it was making a odd noise, so it went in for 5 days, which on collecting they said ‘we...

Re: Orbital Polisher

I have a polisher as well. I’ve had it for a few years and up to now I’ve not used it on the Macan. The previous BMW, it was used regularly to get swirls and scratches out. I use website www.cleanyourcar.co.uk for compounds and pads. Also there are demos of using a polisher for those who are using t...

Re: Engine knocking at idle

So ive come away with my nicely valeted car but w...

Re: Engine knocking at idle

Morning Literally I’m going out of the door now to OPC Leeds to drop my petrol S off for 3 days for a very similar noise issue from the engine bay at idle. My sound is more like a ‘wallowing‘ or like the sound made if you got a sheet of hardboard and moved it backwards and forwards to make a sound. ...

Re: Just had a call from Vodafone

Interesting.. on the topic of what seems a little bit of hatred for the Vodafone telematics service. On purchasing my Macan I did (maybe foolishly) take out the whole 9 yards of tracker, car connect and some other option/service. Well this week for the first time, I left my house keys with the attac...
