Thanks - I’m really pleased with the wheels, one of my better choices on the confuserator!

One of the best wheel designs ever offered on the Macan! :)

Sounds like I paid £899 too much!

I did get a nice case with half a dozen products in, together with a few microfibre cloths. I haven’t used all of the products yet, but what I have used seem excellent.

The car shampoo needs less than half a cap to produce about 12” of foam on top of the bucket, so I think will last ages. The wheel cleaner is also good but will not last so long.

I bought two of the GTechniq buckets, expensive but about twice the size of a regular bucket and really high quality, they also include ‘grit grids’. Plus bought a couple of the large drying towels and a couple of their own microfibre mits.

I’m going to get a couple of extra towels as they only just about stay dry enough to clean two cars. I can dry the Boxster with one towel but not the Macan.

As said previously, just really pleased with the results considering that it didn’t take very long.
I have the large “waffle” towels, I think they are called Guzzler?
Macan was always two towels to do a proper job, annoyingly 911 is one and a little bit of a second! 😳😂

That's good to know. What about a guarantee/certificate?

I recall there is a guarantee but I can’t find anything in my paperwork. I’ll have to follow up when I go in for my Masterclass.

Seem to remember OPC saying they put some sort of sticker code on the back of rear view mirror but might have misunderstood as part of mixed conversation. We'll see...

If you want to make life even easier, and minimise damage to the paintwork at the same time, consider investing in a resin filter for the rinsing water. You can just wash the car, then final rinse with filtered water, then walk away. The car will dry naturally with no water marks, even in bright sunshine. I've been using this method for over 5 years, with great results.

I originally ordered a White Macan but ended up with Gentian Blue, cleans up really good. I usually finish mine off with Dodo Juice Blue Velvet , easy on and essy off.

Mines white and it’s effortless to clean too whether it be the PPF bits or native paint. Had my black gloss side blades PPFd recently too, so they’re now easy too 🙂
