Re: New M5 versus my Macan GTS

I just drove the f pace SVR so I would recommend you check that out. Tech and interior quality is just okay but the engine is something else. With OPF most cars are sounding uninspiring now and for me that’s a big part of the enjoyment and the SVR is insane. Will definitely make you giggle and mpg i...

Re: New M5 versus my Macan GTS

Your M3 looks smart - more aggressive and sporty than M5. Size wise it’s probably near as dammit as practical as M5. They are seriously good value too. Checked my GTS and after 14k miles ive averaged 18.1 mpg so the M3 isn’t that bad!

Re: New M5 versus my Macan GTS

I may well be wrong about the run flats and perhaps connected the wrong dots as ride in my previous beemer which had them was v.annoying. Glad some of you enjoyed the write up. Also re the sound i forgot to say i think its crazy they need to pump artificial noise through speakers when its a 4.0 V8. ...

INTERIOR - Decent plastics and very little feels low rent. I would not be put off moving from the Porker (I have GTS leather option in my ca...

Re: Macan GTS to new Cayenne S?

re the RRS SVR I love the soundtrack but it’s such a thirsty car I think that would put me off. Averaging 19 mpg in the Macan GTS and id probably be looking at not far off half that given my wife does a lot of town driving. Think after the initial love affair it would start to grate on me. Interesti...

Re: Macan GTS to new Cayenne S?

Sure, will post some pics and thoughts of the M5.

Ray - yes that’s defo an option to wait for cayenne GTS. Just getting itchy finger but sticking with Macan for another year or so is best option.
