Re: My Macan after 100.000 km

How is the bonnet looking, stone chip wise? This worries me although I’m only at 21k miles. Unfortunately plenty of chips on the bonnet. I already asked the Porsche center for the price of painting the bonnet. It is €1800. Maybe next year I will do that. Also asked a small local shop, they wpuld ta...

My Macan after 100.000 km

This weekend I reached the 100.000 km with my Macan S Diesel. I took me almost 4 years to reach that. This is how my baby looks like after going 2 1/2 times around the world. Except problems with the service quality of my Porsche center there was only one issue: one of the axle boots had to be repla...

Re: Hello and diesel or petrol dilemma

If you like to press on, you will feel the extra weight of the diesel vs petrol Macan S is 2105 kg, Macan S Diesel is 2120 kg. I doubt you feel the difference of 15 kg. GTS by the way is 2135 kg, so 15 kg heavier compared to the diesel. The GTS has more optional extras fitted as standard = more wei...

Re: Used Macan petrol or diesel?

I would make it dependent on if you prefer sporty driving or comfort rides. I think diesel is better in comfort mode you are then riding between 1000 und 2000 rpm, when needing more power maybe up to 3000. On the highway (beyond 75 miles /hour) the petrol is significantly faster and more powerful wh...

Re: Help! Vibration noise to escalated to Porsche Germany

Hi Dubeva, I do have a very similar sound which occurs e.g. when stopping the car at a traffic light. Until now I believed the sound is comming from the clutches or from transfer case. Now hearing your sound and Porsches explanation I am wondering if this could be the belt. I do have now 45000 miles...

Re: Sport Plus Retrofit MY2017

Looked at the Tequipment site a few weeks ago and it had the Sports Plus option (£570 ish) available for my SD on it. Called Porsche Reading to get it done last week, but they said it’s now no longer available. Checked the Tequipment site again, and it’s gone :( Anyone else had it done on an SD rec...
