Re: what affects prices most?

You have quoted figures for the Macan GTS, not the S. So it's 'only' 4.8 and 161mph then...... Performance isn't everything though, apparently, and I have a pal who has owned umpteen Porsches - quite literally a double figure number of different models, ranging from the Macan GTS to a GT3 - who has...

Re: what affects prices most?

Yep. I recall testing a BMW and every "Porsche extra" I asked the salesman about was standard on the BMW. Like Rolex, it's simply brand marketing (and the Macan IS quite good) so if you want one you have to pay for the badge and that means wringing every penny they can out of you. If you ...

Re: New car collected last Monday

Why not keep the S then? The T is going to feel like a wet blanket after having owned the S :?:

Re: Battery location / type

Actually is this enough? Do the basic chargers come with the clamps? https://amzn.eu/d/9lSgwNr That exact charger make and model is connected up to my laid up Macan now. Mine came with a standard 12v plug plus a socket adaptor with leads to a pair of battery terminal clamps. Great, thanks. Will get...

Re: Battery location / type

Thanks for the explanation. Think it’s time for a new charger then 🙂

Re: Battery location / type

I have a really old Halfords battery charger which I don't think can charge at a rate higher than 12V which may be the key, but I have charged numerous Stop/Start batteries with it with no issue. What benefit would I get purchasing a CTEK and which is the most versatile model. The CTEK5 seems like t...

Re: Porsche Experience Day - weather
