Thanks for the kind comments. Incidentally, my Auto Start/Stop Unavailable warning was back yesterday. I've set the 4th line of the MFD to show Voltage. What should the normal reading be?

I deleted the Macan S badge on mine too, for several reasons. Can’t speak for the OP of course but I mainly thought it makes the rear look cleaner. Plus I generally don’t like model variant letters - maybe a hangover from my childhood when there were all those Ford Cortina and Granada variants that were so important to company car drivers in informing the world of their incremental career progress. I even feel awkward saying I’ve got a Macan S, since I assume nobody cares beyond it being a Macan. And it can date the car a bit when Porsche change the models, like if you see a Macan Turbo badge now you know it’s an older car.

Anyway, moving past my own foibles, congrats to the OP on the new car! It’s lovely and I like the choice of black trim with the blue.
I've clearly not been paying attention. I thought they only deleted the "S", I've only just noticed that "Macan" has gone as well!! :lol:

I know what you mean but probably a bit 1990’s. Badges these days can be misleading (think Audi) and many high end cars have nothing at all bar the manufacturers name.
I park mine in the car park at work and despite having the full model badge on the back, most people just know it’s a Porsche 911 but have absolutely no idea that there is more than one variant. When I had my Macan, most just saw it as a red SUV and didn’t even know it was a Porsche… 😂

911 on the back is more than enough. The badge on an Aston or Ferrari is enough. I don't quite understand the deletion of a model variant unless owners think a thief is less likely to want to steal a base model. I wonder how many GTS owners have debadged their cars ?
MB & BMW owners are always keen to add an AMG or M Sport badge to their cars.

There's the answer ~stick an AMG badge on the back
