Another new SD owner

Post by RyanK » Thu Nov 07, 2019 4:03 pm

Bit of an impulse purchase however after a test drive at the local OPC I put a deposit down on this Macan and picked it up from Teesside a couple of weeks ago. It's a 16 plate 2 owner car with 24k on the clock and seems to have been taken very good care of.

First impressions are great and I am really enjoying it. The comfort with the pasm is fantastic! Coming from a vast array of M cars the power is obviously down but to be honest it's plenty quick enough for what I need. Will probably pick up the TDI tuning box once I workout whether the car is proving reliable or not.

Spec is as follows;
14 Way Seats / Bose / Pan Roof / Power Steering Plus / PDLS / Heated S Wheel / PASM / Privacy Glass / Heated Seats / PCM / Lane Assist / 75l Tank / Illuminated Sills / Sport Design Mirrors / Garnet Red Dials & Seatbelts / Aluminum PDK selector

Definitely not the best spec but at the time it fit the bill price wise etc. Now I have it I realise that because its a 16 plate it has the PCM3 as opposed to PCM4 and also I now wish it had the Full Sport Design package. Can't have it all though but those are my only gripes! Also LED headlights but I'm guessing they can be retrofitted at an alarming cost so perhaps will just lookout for the black design headlights on eBay.

Welcome to the forum.

You say your car is not a great spec but you seem to have most of the essentials covered. As you have PDLS, I'm assuming the headlights are Bi-Xenon: IMHO it's probably not worth spending a great deal of money upgrading to LED.

On Order: GTS
Going- 2015 Sapphire Blue Diesel
