Re: Running in, please pass?

17 days after collecting the Macan, I'm happy to report that we're safely back on the South coast from our trip to Cumbria. Managed almost 300 miles before hitching up the 'van and heading north, and the odometer now read 1360 miles covered, 750 of which were towing. Suffice to say, what a tow car!...
