Thanks for all the feedback, I do appreciate it. I’m tall (6’4”) but certainly not slim :oops: :lol:
I'm the same, 6'4" and a little more lumber than I used to have. I've had nearly 5 years with the 18 way seats, by far the best and comfiest seats I've ever had in a car.

Thanks, difficult to know what's best without trying myself. I've had quite bolstered seats before though in the M3 so I'd be surprised if it's an issue.

The difference is that the height of the Macan means your stepping up to enter as opposed to the M3 where your falling down 😊 although at 6.4 you won’t notice it as an issue, see topic below for some further views.

I've got an X5 at the mo so it'll probably feel like I'm falling into a Macan ;)

Thanks for the link

The seats are far superior compared to X5 seats.

TBH I find the X5 seats very comfortable :) But what I meant is the Macan is quite a bit lower than the X5

Even with my 6'4" I find I slide across into the Macan, it's spot on for that. Dropping down into my last Beamer used to cause me a bad back.

I previously owned a BMW 535 GT with 16 way comfort seats, I thought they were the best seats in the business until I got the Macan with 18 way seats. Trust me, after 12 BMW’s, Porsche do it much better.
2017 Macan SD in Volcano with 21” 911 wheels, full black leather. Air, PASM, PDLS+, sports exhaust, pano roof, Sports Chrono, 18 way seats, BOSE, ventilated front seats, heated seats front and rear, speed limit display, active cruise, PS plus and more
