Re: 2019 Macan S puddle lights

the "puddle lights" have a dual function, when either of the doors are open at night, the bottom half of the light emits a white light to the road, the remainder of the lens is red which emits a red light to warn passing motorists that your door is open, I see that as a safety feature worth having!...

Re: 2019 Macan S puddle lights

My macan was a Porsche factory specification vehicle, afraid I had no choice to add more extras such as the extended lighting package, which I would have if I had factory/dealer specified my car. I would like to have these additional lights operating, the light fittings themselves can be purchased f...

Re: 2019 Macan S puddle lights

why are these are crucial "safety item"? its not brakes or ABS, might stop you stepping in a deep puddle I guess :) with Porsche you do need to interrogate the options list and what it does/doesn't include but Audi option prices are just as silly (ex RS4 owner) the "puddle lights" have a dual funct...

Re: 2019 Macan S puddle lights

Confirmed, no lights installed under the clear/red lenses upon all four doors, cannot believe Porsche would omit these safety items to save a bit of money, they really have opened my eyes when it comes to vehicle specifications, these should be standard fitted items across their range. I own two Por...

Re: 2019 Macan S puddle lights

I don't have the comfort light package which appears to include the door lights, but have the memory package, Porsche have some very strange ideas when it comes to specifications. these under door lights are standard on most family cars, Porsche want you to pay extra for them, these items are surely...

2019 Macan S puddle lights

my macan S appears to have puddle lights installed but they do not switch on/off when the doors are opened closed, they either have no lights/bulbs installed or do they need a software update to operate?

is that the real colour?
My guess is it’s crayon & the indoor lights & camera have tinted it.
Too old to be original factory crayon, this is a pre-718 model.

Re: PPF - Does the Macan Need this?

100% the Macan needs PPF, not only to the very delicate clamshell bonnet, no wings on the macan, they are all incorporated into this huge bonnet which is prone to stone chips and costs at least £500 or more to paint, depending on the paint type. The rear doors are also prone to stone damage from the...

Re: Whining Noise at low speed

But the Macan is not a 100% all wheel / 4-wheel drive. It is predominantly rear wheel drive and all wheel drive comes into action only if called for in certain conditions. You can watch the split between rear and front wheels in the Multi Function Display. ;) Both Porsche and Audi utilise the same ...

Re: Whining Noise at low speed

I have noticed this "whining" noise at low speeds especially with no throttle input and slowing down for say a turn without use of the brakes, this is on a 2019 Macan S model. Coming from an Audi SQ5 I find the Porsche all wheel drive system somewhat primitive compared to the Audi quattro system wh...
