Re: Speed Limits

Totally the wrong presumption to link lower speed limits to an ageing population of drivers. It is the 17 - 24 year old drivers that have the highest rate if accidents. Nick is totally correct, it is driver education and I would add a stiffer set of tests and even more punative punnishments for thos...

Re: My GTS still for sale...

A GTS is more than a cosmetic add on to an S. Internally the engine and gearbox have upgraded components and if I remember correctly a GTS has larger brakes. You can achieve the lower ride height by including Air suspension and setting it on the Low position. Many of us with Air suspension do just t...

Re: relatively new member with New Macan S order

Thanks for the info Col.. Sounds like I should have already received an invite to Silverstone but nothing has been mentioned to me at all. My deposit put in March, spec locked down in Dec. Guess I should bring up with the dealer.. I assume this is definitely included via all dealers? Thx John Ring ...

Re: relatively new member with New Macan S order

Also do read up on prior posts on Silverstone PEC where you will get an invite to attend a freebie day there driving an S around the circuits and on the skid pan and ice hill, two meals included. Speak nicely to your Instructor and if available you could also get to drive a rather nice sports model....

Re: Hot Macan?

Seats do get a bit to hot.

Three lights gives third degree burns to my butt, (sorry for inflicting that thought on you).

Re: relatively new member with New Macan S order

Good grief that will be one highly specced Macan. Except...... the hint Nick gave re heated steering wheel is certainly a box to tick, I use mine far, far more than my heated seats. LEDs are superb. SurCam I find very handly for parallel parking. My Air and 20” gives a great ride. I also have partia...

Re: Parking 'home and away'

Welcome Paulmac btw. As Paul has indicated Surround Cam is very useful to include. Rear quarter vision is very poor anyway so a RevCam is a great extra but SurCam is by far better, means you can get it very close to the kerb withour risk of rim damage. As many car parks are very tight then SurCam do...

Re: Car park

Probably owned it for a while & can buy it again 100 times over, so not as stressed as some of us would be with our Macans :) Yep. Spot on with your assumptions. Me, I would get a limo to take us to the airport and collect us on our return then at least we could take more than carry on. Nothing wor...

Re: Parking 'home and away'

It's a car, not a baby and it's insured. Macan never got a second look from anyone, 911 barely gets a look and take it to the supermarket and everywhere else. I find the whole concept of being precious about a car a bit odd. My 911 is used as a daily driver and lives on my drive and not in the gara...

Re: Parking 'home and away'

Always garaged at home. Away from home it gets parked in a location that I can get out of the car easily and with a bit of luck when I return some dick has not parked up close. If said dick parks up close I have one hellovajob getting back into the car. I also avoid parking where it is likely to get...
