Meant to say thanks for the link Mark , fascinating stuff. one wonders how much police activity there is in such a location. ;) ;) ;)

I assume the red GTS is the German vehicle that has since been spotted at Reading

Great review from a proper mag!

https://www.evo.co.uk/porsche/macan-gts ... glio-rival
but is is a pity they cannot get their facts right:- "A small pair of paddles positioned behind the wheel allows you to shift up and down, but you can’t select a manual mode, so it will always default back to auto after a relatively short period of time if you haven’t selected a higher or lower gear. It feels very un-Porsche like."

Clearly, they have not moved the "stick" to the left
Think I read elsewhere you can no longer move the shifter to left to engage manual. I think there may now be a button on the steering wheel
Yes on the steering wheel - saw it in one of the US reviews ...

Makes me happy at least for upgrading to the S from the base model!

Car magazine October edition have a brief review on the new Macan but are highlighting the base model as the one to get. As I previously feared they also mention the harsh ride on the new GTS with the sports air suspension and criticise the need for Torque Vectoring ( unless you intend tracking your GTS). Probably the best option is to go for the no-cost standard air suspension, I have always found that dropping the suspension into sport or sport plus via PASM, controls the occasional bounce on rough country roads without affecting comfort or making the ride too hard.
