Re: Macan S Diesel - Brake & Disc Costs??

When my brake warning light came up I found wear sensor wire had broken. The other side had already been shorted together by the previous owner or the garage I bought it from. I'd been keeping an eye on my pads just by looking through the wheel and seeing how the back of the pad stood off from the d...

Re: Battery Compartment Flooded

I found my battery compartment full of water this time last year. The battery shorted and the airbag lit. Porsche wouldn't reset it until they found the source so I got another garage to do that. I duct taped the roof up for the rest of the winter and then and come spring and during lockdown I sorte...

Re: Macan S Diesel - Brake & Disc Costs??

Re: Rear Rotor Specification?

They're the same as the diesal S starting life at 34mm at the front and 22mm at the back then the min thickness becomes 32 and 20 according to the macan manual.
Apparently this only really matters if you permanently drive it hard and can go less.

Re: Front fog lights

Yep noticed same this morning on my S D, Porsche "good to know" app says indicator comes on at both positions for front and rear but in reality only comes on at second click for rear. Glad to know, from this forum, that this is how Macans work before I start pouring over electrical schematics to wor...

Re: Macan SD

To appease my better half I had to say good bye to my BMW 640D Gran Coupe because my father in law couldn't get into it nor into her 1 series without a considerable kerfuffle. Having now had my S D for a week I've gone from feeling a bit miserable about the whole thing to OMG I should have done this...
