8-way seats are very comfortable. 4+yrs use in two Macans.

So yes try all three options on an extended test drive, if possible.

Has anyone on here ordered their new Macan in Carrara white? I’m quite liking the white with the black bits,roof rails and the black gloss GT wheels. Any pics knocking about? 👍

Hi Iv got this S on order
Didn’t go for the wheels as an extra as wanted to
Spend the budget on other things
It’s a personal choice
I’m excited by the car Iv put together
Hope you like it might give you some insight

Great spec, just lacking the bigger wheels for me. :D

Just an alternative opinion. A very decent spec but I would definitely add the extended leather, it’s a world of difference to the standard interior and makes it feel far more luxurious. Also, for me a bit over-egged the black on the sides, you could drop the black handles or body colour the side blades? I would drop to 20” Macan S wheels in gloss black, as the silver diamond cut would soften the black and complements the exhaust colour. A big plus is a truly much better ride, I’ve had both 20 and 21 and if I get another GTS I will probably be one of the few buyers that actually tries to down size. Although config says No! 🙄 👍

I probably agree with the too much black on the sides,and would drop the door handles in black to compensate for that, I might yet get rid of the colour coded aprons and sills.
I’m not concerned about the extended leather as I’m not keen on leather anyway and if I could have the 14 way in alcantara type stuff I would, my wife hates leather.
Personally I think the new gen 3 needs the larger 21’ wheels and with PASM and air there is no longer any requirement to go to 20’s for ride quality.
Thanks for the input,it’s good to have differing views and opinions.👍
