Re: Horrendously excessive internal condensation

I like sunroofs, it’s the glass in the roof that does it for me. And the fact you can open the glass to get fresh air. I like convertibles too - better exposure to fresh air than sunroofs but generally don’t have the glass bit. I like mine too, though i have admitted in a post on here to not knowin...

Re: Horrendously excessive internal condensation

If you look at the roof, the rear section has rubber seals each side which are soft to allow the supports for the front section to slide back. So even if you don’t open the roof it is easy for debris to get in there. I had a quick look with a borescope today and don’t see any debris in mine but wil...

Re: Horrendously excessive internal condensation

The front drains on the pano roof are easily visible in the corners and drain near the bottom from the front wing. The rear drains cannot be seen, they are at the corners of the rear panel and drain just behind the rear wheel arch liners. To clean them out you need to remove the rear wheel arch lin...

Re: Horrendously excessive internal condensation

Perhaps a regular wipe of the sunroof rubber seals and a poke in the drains eliminates any offending debris entering the system? I seem to have solved my car's water ingress that way. But it was the front driver's rubber mat that was holding a puddle plus the wind deflector sat in water. So a much ...

My Macan has only had the roof open a couple of times and theres no overha...

Re: 911 Turbo S

Totally agree about it being overkill as are most cars these days. However, the GTS (along with most cars made by Porsche and some others) provides a sense of occasion when driving it and I really like that it can be so docile and so fierce depending on your mood . I really would struggle to think ...

Re: Horrendously excessive internal condensation

Doesn’t your Macan have Auto Temp Control? I set it to 22 Celsius and the A/C keeps it dry and the heater keeps it warm. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk It does, i set it to 21 which im happy with. So far the last couple of days have been water free and light interior condensation. I’m ‘assuming’ ...
