Re: Black Calipers

I didn’t even know it was an option.

Stupid thing is that most people would pay to have red callipers.

Re: Playing media via USB port on Gen 3

I am getting increasingly concerned that most of the Gen 3’s are coming through with just USB-C’s in the front with no SIM or SD slot. Based on this post the really worrying bit is, are they just charging points now like the ones in the back? Have they removed all connectivity expecting people to us...

Picked mine up yesterday - very pleased!

Ps No SIM card, 2 USB-C
If it wasn’t for the roof rails I’d say you’d just collected my car 😊

Looks great, which is handy for me.

Re: New macan s connectivity

There is another post where someone has been unable to get media to play through their USB-C connections. You don’t think they’ve replaced the front connectors so they are just charging points as they are in the rear? That would mean the only media access is via wireless apple car play or Bluetooth....

Re: Porsche slow to BEV Macan

yep, Model 3 should definitely have been a hatch I think they probably did the saloon first because they were production limited. The Y is basically the hatch/crossover version and there is a Golf sized hatch coming next. The 3 is actually more practical than it looks. The boot is tall and deep and...

Re: Porsche slow to BEV Macan

generally speaking I think the Tesla’s, all of them, look pretty good. Not massively keen on the squashed frog look of the Model 3 from the front but I think it looks at least as good as any other saloon from the side and the back. I also think the build quality was pretty good and the handling was...

Re: Porsche slow to BEV Macan

Mind you, I remember thinking how utterly bizarre the Sierra looked when it first came out when all other cars were just square boxes. I think this is one of the main issues. Cars like Tesla are designed to give maximum interior space and optimum external aerodynamics, so they look "different&...

Re: Porsche slow to BEV Macan

Agreed that BEV designs so far are poor. There is always something/angle wrong. I-pace a case in point From a looks perspective I think the Audi Etron GT or Taycan are probably the best (basically the same car) then Tesla then Polestar ( at the moment ). The Q4 Etron looks pretty good too, just nas...
