I think the PEC was the game changer. Being able to drive in a closed environment I was able to do things and see things a normal test drive would not show. I had a great instructor who kept on getting me to push the Macan further and further and if I am honest still nowhere near the limit.

You now know to try harder next time.

If the Instructor does not have white knuckles, drive faster.

Most PEC fun, skid pan, in a Boxster with the Traction control off.

So, 5 months on and I’m about to take delivery. £30 k over original car budget and £15 k over the Macan budget 😂.

I remember playing test drive on the Amiga and playing with the Porsche thinking one day I’ll have one and now I will.

I’ve actually quite enjoyed the buying experience, hopefully ownership and ongoing service is as good.

Driving experience, yes, definitely, service don't hold your breath, expect nothing and you might be pleasantly surprised. Overall, well I'm on my second with no plans to change, so I think the pulses win. 😁

I find no problem with the service I get from Dick Lovett Swindon. I too am on my second and can’t think of many cars I’d prefer.

How much was the "Cloaking" Device?? never saw that option on the configurator?

Anyway, hope the car is everything you wanted it to be and more!
Wish you many happy and safe miles driving the new car.
