Re: Potential new owner

Welcome. I have had my Turbo for 18 months and love it. Whilst I have the SC, the Turbo just does not need it for the fraction of a second it accelerates quicker. The Sports Exhaust in all Macans is an aural performance item only, it gives Zero increase in either Torque or Power. It does drone and c...

Re: Roof Cleaning

Does that apron do away with the need for a drying towel then?😉😉😂 The step is actually to help me launch on to the roof and allow me to slide across the roof and down the bonnet on my stomach. With better technique, I feel I can dry 70% of the car in a single movement. :lol: :lol: If thats how you ...

Re: Dealer advice

Not bought from Chester but a few test drives there and a cancelled order on my part resulted in great service. East of Chester is Wilmslow, if you want a bad Sales experience visit there to test drive then buy elsewhere. Given the service infrequency it does not matter really where you buy from. Bo...

I have used something similar to this for the last 20 years.

It is a few inches taller than the Screwfix step stool and in the case of our beloved Macans, size matters :oops:

Re: Sold within a day....

In January 2017 WBAC were offering more than my OPC so I cancelled my order. Sometimes WBAC are quite good if your car is lightly optioned. I think I paid about £51000 when I bought my last Macan in May 2015 and so was quite happy with £37500 p/x at 23000 miles and 34 months old. Would agree Mark r...

Re: New car ordered

The OP’s white wheels are only on the face and hence it should be not to difficult.

Totally agree about the Spyders, I foam mine and blast them, then rinse with the filtered water. Only rarely do I get the wheel woolies in to them since even a quick blast makes them look stunning.

Re: Sold within a day....

Thats a great result for you. Previously I have tried to sell a Pug 206GTI it was in stunning condition, zero responses from Autotrader and Pistonheads. Then tried my Audi Q3, and again zero response, well that is not quite right, I did get an independent offer me £5k less than Porsche offered as th...

Re: Stelvio qf vs macan turbo po

Now, I get in my Turbo, drive, fill up with fuel, drive, fill up with fuel, drive, fill up with fuel. A bit thirsty is it?! Nor really for a 400 bhp 2 tonne SUV. So far average 23 mpg but that is not important to me. My worries about an Alfa would be .... drive, fill up, drive, break down, have loa...

Re: Stelvio qf vs macan turbo po

In a word ...... no. Like the look of the Stelvio images I have but I have not seen one either on the road of at the dealer. Guilio QF does sound and look good. But They are Alfas with all that goes with them. For me there will always be that doubt, will it get me there and back? Will I loose 2 shed...
