Collection day tomorrow

Post by JurassicMacan » Tue Oct 27, 2020 6:47 pm

Exciting day tomorrow, the Carrara white Macan GTS has been fully prepped. OPC say the doors are perfect, paint finish and match exactly as the rest of the body.
I hope my OCD is as satisfied. I am taking my detailing light with me, bet they will have never seen a buyer go over a car as much as I will, before handing over the balance and hopefully driving away with a beautiful car๐Ÿคž๐Ÿคž๐Ÿคž

Good luck. Hope it meets your high standards and arrives in better condition than mine did yesterday.

Quick question and apologies if you've explained before, what was the reason for rejecting the red macan s?

Timing chain seal leak. A known problem on earlier cars but a 2018 car just serviced by Porsche Cardiff!
Wasn't prepared to take a car that would potentially be off the road for 3+ weeks and have the whole front end out.

Hope the collection goes well. A detailing light is for amateurs, paint depth meter is where itโ€™s at lol

Deal done on the Carmine red GTS.
This one has everything that the white one had, plus ACC, memory pack, PDSL plus, red stitching on the alcantara seats, dash and doors.
As it had already been prepped taking it today๐Ÿ‘

Oh MCDK, it's got the black wheels๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜
