Great review 👍

I was very close to putting down a deposit for a RRS and still fancy a RS4 so very relevant to me :D

In the past, I have fancied both a Range Rover Sport and an Audi RS4/RS6. However, I honestly can't see myself in anything other than a Porsche from now on... :)
We're hooked :D :D :D

Do you think they spike the food and drink at Silverstone :D :D :D

Or something that they inject into the air conditioning at OPCs! :lol:

Yes, good review, lots of considered thoughts.

Completely agree about the heated w/screen, said the same when I posted my 1500-mile review. Waiting for the fan heater to do its thing, or trying to scrape off frozen beaded raindrops covered with a layer of sleet and then frost on top, is like being beamed back to the 1970s.

Perhaps it's the air conditioning in the cars themselves. They are always keen to "service" (top up) the air conditioning system.

Porsche is best, Porsche is best, must always buy a Porsche :shock: :shock: :shock:

That's a good write up and it seems we have a lot of options in common and I concur with your thoughts. Heated steering wheel I went with and it's one of the nicest things in the car. Mine does have trim rattles which are annoyingly intermittent so difficult to diagnose. The OPC's MO is to send a fitter out with you (I've already had some sorted) and that will be the day it decides not to do it. My LED lights do seem to dazzle oncoming traffic so I need to get them sorted too. I wish it were easier to turn "adaptive" on and off.

Martin - I had an elusive rattle for a while and I was convinced it was coming from somewhere in the centre console. OPC tried but couldn't solve and I eventually traced it to the sunroof seals. Its and easy fix - from inside the car with the sunroof open, smear a very light coating of silicon grease all the way around the upper surface of the seal with one finger. So worth trying just to eliminate it from your enquiries as it were. Also worth doing the same for the door seals just in case one of them is the source (solved a persistent rattle in my wife's Golf this way).

From my experience, that’s a very wise choice. I will be keeping my eyes peeled for a yellow “T” in the coming months!

Honestly, I still miss me RRS a bit... Yes quality/price was not so good, brakes were crap, engine too tame, huge to park and cabin layout was not always very ergonomical... but that car had something different. It was sooo relaxing, and I felt like a king on his throne... I wanted more sport and better quality, and the Macan is superb. I have no regrets. But I’ll always have a warm place in my hart for the English giant...

Cheers! I'm hoping that there won't be many yellow Ts in this neck of the woods! ;)
