If I remember rightly, will this be the UK’s first walnut trimmed Gen III?!
I don't know whether it will be the first (or indeed the only one ever) - but I am looking forward to it! :D

I was told 7-10 days before it gets to the OPC - but with Xmas - who knows??? :D
If your including all Macan’s, just to say, mine is walnut trimmed. But it’s an old bus, a late 2016 model that I specked myself. Dare to be different.
Yes absolutely :-)
Of course I'm of an age that wouldn't see walnut on a dash as "different" :-)
I'm not about to start wearing ripped jeans and I'm not about to cover my car in black plastic!
- but each to his own - I'd have accepted the brushed black aluminium dash otherwise - but it isn't available on the S.

Hopefully collecting mine on 31 December in Sydney, which could make it technically the 1 st in the UK;)
We're nine hours behind Sydney so if you pick it up first thing it could still be 30th here, Whatever time it is, enjoy your new car.

I know Porsches are fast but warp speed is surely beyond them :-)

I'm probably at a similar age too.
I think of Macans as executive cars, more so than sports cars. And walnut is associated with exec' cars.
I was at the Bentley factory in Crewe for the day, when the Bentayga was being built and launched (not to buy may I add). And to see the amount of different veneers, from all over the world they stock, is unbelievable. On the TV a few months ago, there was a programme about Bentleys, and they trimmed a whole dash and door cappings area, in veneer encrusted with a vast amount of diamonds, that mirrored the constellations in the sky. A sight to behold. If money was no object. :roll:

We are thinking of it if we order a new Macan along with Gentian Blue and Black leather.
I think it provides a bit of colour to the interior

I did.
The sales exec didn't seem too convinced until he actually took a sample from the drawer - and then checked it out on the configurator with the pebble leather. He was 100% for it once he had really looked at it. :-)

Had an email this morning to let me know that my car is at the "preparation centre" in Sheerness!
Should be at my dealer in 7-10 days :-). It was "on the boat on the 23rd - so maybe they've had it a couple of days already?

- but what happens at the "preparation centre" ????

I was supposed to be picking mine up this week, but it's been sitting in Germany now for over a month waiting for a headlight module to be fitted :-( I still having my fingers crossed for a January collection!

Repairing all the dings and scratches it’s picked up during transport! :lol:

But seriously, as far as I know it only has to clear Customs. That can sometimes cause a delay but I’d have thought 7 to 10 days should be at the pessimistic end of estimates.
