Hi to All

Post by SimonH146 » Tue Dec 03, 2019 10:10 am

Hi all, been reading bits and pieces on this forum for a few months now while trying to make my mind up! New Macan S on order now for delivery end March 2020. Thanks to all those posting advice and experience which swayed my decision. :D Too long to wait, but give time to tweak and finalise my spec. Drove car on air with 21 inch wheels for test drive, but going back soon to try out steel with PASM as not sure I really need the air, any comments? Looking forward to the Porsche experience at Silverstone to keep me going though the long winter wait. Upside is car should arrive in time for dry roads and sunshine, also then give me time to save up for winter wheel and tyre set ;) .

I'm on 20" with air and the ride is fantastic for long trips. you can then push the button to firm it up as required.

Would go well with your Bose and quiet glass.

I haven't felt the need for winter wheels through two winters; it grips quite well and the 4wd system seems to do the job well enough off road.

I've got a Suzuki for serious mud though.

Welcome to the Macan Forums.

I test drove Air, PASM and standard and settled on PASM. No regrets 2.5 years on as the ride quality comfort is excellent

What is your OPC saying about price and any post Brexit impact on pricing come March / April? with the probable / possible import duty change.

I test drove a new S on 21" with air suspension for a weekend and it was great. But after testing one with 21" and pasm on steel springs I didnt feel much difference.. so I now have a macan s with 21" pasm on steel springs and love it. I never use comfort mode 90% sport 10% sport plus when pushing on..
