Macan S D - 2017

Post by J1220 » Tue Dec 03, 2019 12:06 pm

Is it possible to change the front bumper lower spoiler to the sport design style or does the complete bumper need to be changed?

Car with Air Suspension, can it be driven with the car in the low ride height?

TIA

Can't answer the first bit, but you certainly can drive in the low setting, I do all the time.

I like the stance of the GTS and cars fitted with Air Suspension on the low ride setting look very similar to the GTS stance.

Not having much luck with the GTS search I've now started looking at higher spec S (petrol and diesel).

You should be able to answer the question from the parts diagram.
Porsche Parts Catalogue from Porsche UK website:
https://www.porsche.com/uk/accessoriesandservice/porscheservice/serviceandorgininalparts/originalparts/
Select model then download.

Near the top you will see the option codes to see which is for sports design, then look on the front bumper diagrams to see which parts are particular to that option code.

Regards

Another question :

Alcantara (inserts) seats how well do they wear? is there additional maintenance over leather?

TIA

I've had no problem with Audi alcantara. It seems to wear well.

My Macan's Alcantara looks as good as new now 31 months on. :D Even with 5 grandchildren using the back seat regularly......not all at once though! :lol:
