    Re: new Rennteam member - Macan Turbo

    Congrats.... sorry for late answer - didnt see that thread before yes

    Car looks great - looking forward what you are saying after having it some weeks?


    Re: new Rennteam member - Macan Turbo

    Congrats, looks stunning, a step-up compared to the cayenne in my opinion, which never really 'clicked' for me.

    We are considering to swap an X6 for a Macan soon, are you in a position to draw a small comparison between those two?

    And since you seem to be driving it as one should be, what is the fuel consumption like IRL? The X6 we have is a 35i and it drinks like the person in my avatar when driven hard. Think 20l/100km plus.

    Re: new Rennteam member - Macan Turbo

    Short Update: The car was 1 week at the dealer because oil leakage from the engine. The cylinder head had a small defect which got fixed. Very annoying on a new car. 

    I got a Macan S as a loaner with air suspension. Imho the air suspension isn’t worth it except the ride height adjustment. In normal mode its more fussy so i drove it all the time in sport mode and then its not as comfortable as the standard suspension in normal mode. The car had standard seats (Turbo has sport seats) and i didn’t liked them at all. The sport seats are way better (back and side support) maybe the best seats i ever sat in. But i liked the engine. The engine and power delivery is more consistent over the rev range.

    That’s one of my main complaints about the Macan Turbo. The engine feels a little bit airless above 4k rpm. Maybe it is detuned - i test drove a C63 AMG in the past (the detuned 457 HP version) and it had the same behavior. From the hump low down you expect more in the upper rev range and when i accelerate hard i often short shift with the paddles to overcome it. But you pick up speed fast with it for shure. The fuel consumption is also very high (no wonder with 2000 kg weight and 400HP) when driven hard 20l/100km plus. Overall with lots of city driving around 16-17l/100km. The sound is an other down side. It sounds like an vacuum cleaner.

    This car is an SUV. No one should compare it to a proper sports car. I mean i love this car its so comfortable yet you can carry really high speeds through corners - braking is good an consistent - you feel the rear biased setup which helps a lot on twisty roads, very neutral in corners and you can drive at a high pace with lot of fun - but it is an SUV. There is the weight and the distribution of it.

    Overall I’m really really happy with it. For me its the perfect DD. The only thing i wish for is a more consistent engine with 450HP or funnily even go with a Macan S.

    The part in bold, is it about the Macan Turbo or about the C63 AMG?  Sorry, but that's not so clear to me which car you're talking about.  I assume C63?  Thanks.

    No I talk about the Macan Turbo.


    Re: new Rennteam member - Macan Turbo

    With max torque already close to 1300rpm there is not much punch to be expected in the turbo version above the 4k range. The power in the S is indeed a little bit more 'distributed'.
