Re: Two bucket method ditched...

When a new car owner one gets a little (?) obsessive. Having got three bonnet chips in 1,000 miles I had the bonnet resprayed and then fully wrapped my GTS. Since then it barely needs a polish. I find a hose down followed by a bucket of soapy water and a further hose rinse and rub dry does the trick...

Re: Selling to the trade

I bought the car I wanted and a pile of options I wanted. I was well aware that in investment terms it was madness but I prefer driving the GTS to watching stock and bond prices riding the waves. Why buy the car, even the basic car, if you are concerned about depreciation? It’s a stupid large 4 whee...

Re: Macan Turbo re-sale figures

Agreed. The new rear lights have lost the Porsche look.

Re: Dozens of annoying things about...

Thanks WingCo. I feared that might be the answer. My neighbours are a little old to be woken at 05.30 by the sound of a ‘Spitfire’ warming up. Can they really be that old? When somewhat younger the sound of my Norton 650 used to give me a thrill. Sadly I have since grown older myself! No choice then...

Re: PPF application Staffordshire / Cheshire?

I had my Macan GTS full body wrapped at Porsche Reading. They also do ‘facials’. They were excellent.

Re: Macan Turbo re-sale figures

Buying a new car is always a bit bonkers... I added every bell and whistle to my GTS and then had a full body wrap... INSANE! BUT... I hate changing cars until they start falling apart so I will keep my over-specked 3/2018 until then.. The depreciation curve slowly flattens out and the last couple o...

Re: Dozens of annoying things about...

Totally agree about the absurd ‘look at me’ engine volume when starting the GTS. I DO NOT want my neighbours to be woken up when I try to sneak out early at 05.30.

Is there no way of stopping this absurdity?

Re: Vodafone anti-theft service...

I'd rather get a false alarm call than not know it had been nicked. Had two calls in 18 months, 1 due to dud fob battery.

Re: Newbie - advice please

I specced my GTS with air suspension(amazing), power steering plus (why is that an extra?), torque vectoring (ticked box, probably a waste for me) pan roof (like this a lot), dark windows, park assist ( can’t see sod all without it) , lane assist (silly) LED lights (great), adaptive cruise control (...
