Dropped our Macan S petrol at the OPC for fix to the instrument cluster last thursday, however they were unable to offer the fix they anticipated so we arranged for a collection of our car today from Mrs J5kol workplace.

I received a text earlier from the better half asking how she will fit her weekly shop she had planned to do in the vehicle (shown below) they had provided us with. Not too shabby though alll the same, just a shame i am not around until later on tonight to check it drives okay :lol:

The front boot is of a decent size...!

I had one too as a courtesy car. You'd be surprised how much you can fit in, across the two boots.

Shame about the engine but it is surprisingly practical

The 718 - pretty much the best Cayman in all respects apart from the noise made by the engine and perhaps the 4-pot being a bit less smooth, refined and 'special' than the previous 6-pot engines.

It sounds positively agricultural compared to the 981 and they should have kept a 6 pot albeit in a detuned turbo form. Agree that the performance metrics are very good indeed, however.

Got my 24 month service in a couple of weeks. I have dropped hints so fingers crossed.

I read today that the Cayman 718 GTS has the same Nurburgring lap time as the GT4 and the 997.2 GT3! :shock:
