Re: New Macan S Engine or Drive Train manufacture defect with 3 litre petrol engine??

Hi Can any owners of the new Macan S help me with this questions..... I have an annoying vibration between 1500 and 4000 RPM, which is even more prominent when the car is under load, ie going up a hill.. coming from the engine or drive train. Just did a 600 mile round trip and the vibration was ver...

Re: M135i

No, but the two things I think are horrendous on these beemers are the huge ugly grilles and the iPad stuck on the dash. Oh, there’s a third thing, the depreciation. Hope I haven’t offended anyone here......... Depreciation is always bad. I got a quote from Carwow for the X3M Competition and one de...

Re: Connect services

" I couldn't access the Navigation or News service through the website until I had bought a data package. I did buy one for £29 which is no doubt a rip off but I wanted to test it out and will get another data SIM at some point. " I don't think they let you use your own data connection for your own...

Re: 2016 GTS - carplay not working

Thanks Nick. I don’t think it does. Signing on to the Porsche connect website gives me the message ‘car does not have connect so no apps available’ (or similar)! There is no slot for a sim under the pcm flap, just 2 SD cards, which probably doesn’t help. Bit of a nightmare really. Does CarPlay not ...

Re: 2016 GTS - carplay not working

I think Connect Plus became standard across the Macan range from March '17, together with the inevitable price rise! maxf - do you want to post that image I suggested? I will do - but didn't get a chance last night. Is there any way I can tell if I have connect plus? I have nav with traffic updates...

Re: 2016 GTS - carplay not working

My 2016 ‘66 GTS does not have carplay, despite having the “new” PCM 4. Connect / connect plus and carplay were all optional for a short time during May / June / July builds before coming standard in late ‘16 (you can almost certainly upgrade to carplay as a dealer option for some ££s) I think Conne...

Re: 2016 GTS - carplay not working

Hi max and welcome to our forum.

Can you post an image of the Home screen on your PCM, ignition on, so we can see the phone connection icon etc at the bottom of the screen?

Re: Semerka's Macan tractor is here!

Sorry about the breakdown Semerka. Yes, sounds like turbo seals, especially if there were no accompanying major mechanical noises. If that's the case I guess they'll whack in a couple of fresh turbos and she'll be like new.

Re: 718-6

^^^ Apparently customers haven’t generally taken well to the 4 pot engine, particularly its sound, and world wide sales haven’t been great. The release of the Taycan spreads the corporate emissions figures so allows Porsche to produce a new 718 that maybe isn’t quite as green as the current model.
