Re: Folding Mirrors

Our Macan is a Gen 1 so it doesn't have folding-in mirrors unless the key fob has a long press, however the 718 does have them.

It will fold the mirrors in when locking, but on unlocking, it only unfolds them when the ignition is operated.

Re: Porsche Taycan OPC Launch Event

No Belfast invite for me as yet, which is surprising as my SE told me it was happening and that he would issue an invite. He knows I'm very interested in a BEV Macan. Just to get a feel for the drivetrain.

Re: Turbo mpg?

Gen 1 Turbo in the US - I get low 20s around town and on short trips and on longer trips, using the coasting feature on the downhill sections, I get mid-20s, sometimes as high as 26. It's a 3.6 in a 4400 lb. vehicle, so fuel economy is not necessarily its strong suit. As always, YMMV... ;) Your gal...

Switch to a pump, action bottle. For example the:
Spear & Jackson 2LPAPS
It is a pump action one.

Hoselock pressure bottle

I use Bilt Hamber neutral PH wheel cleaner. Great stuff, turns purple when active and smells of orange. I used to buy it a litre at a time in the trigger pump gun. Problem is, it leaks on your hands as you use the trigger repeatedly and you pretty much smell of it for a few days. So I bought a 5-lit...

Re: New GTS planned

Brave choice. I'd add the spare wheel and I really like the surround view cameras that we have on our car.

Re: Touchless Wheel cleaning

Since I final rinse with filtered water I no longer dry and see zero water spots even when washed in bright sun. New to this so please forgive, Is filtered water readily available? There's a good (long) thread on car cleaning - the filtration options are well discussed on there. Thankfully I live i...
