    I'm confused. What is this guy talking about??

    Transforming a PDK transmission into a stick shift transmission? Is that even possible? What would be the Porsche warranty?

    At Pfaff, do you deal with Joe? I find Joe makes a real effort to help out. . Joe offered to look at my car to try to find the cause of the Owl hooting ide noise and leave the car for a couple of days. Not sure if I will do that since no other dealer has fixed it yet and I'm scared these guys make make the car worse off. I see a blue Macan on street adjacent to Bayvieiw mall with Valuemart and Harveys. That Yours?

    Hi - I saw your comment on the wheel painting service in Toronto. Can you suggest a few decent shops that offer these services? I live in Toronto as well. Thanks.

    Hi.
    I bought my plain simple 2016 Macan from Pffat in August this year. I think I'm live close by to you near Bayview /Finch. Anyway, did you ever decide to get the extended warranty and have what snow tire package did you buy if any? Thanks. Wayne.

    Yes. ceramic film. Not your ordinary dyed film which will indeed be darker and does not adjust the the lighting condition.

    15% front and 40% rear (all windows); factory rear tint already at about 35%.

    Previously, I had 35% ceramic tint on my other car but I found them way too light to reject much heat in the summer time. I guess it comes down to the driver's preference. For me, my last 2 cars had been 15% ceramic tint all around and no issue in winter time and night time visibility.

    The darkest is 5% but that's limo type of tint. I am sure the police will probably stop you regardless.

    Here is one pic I took this summer. It is taken from the driver side, which is 15%

    My Silver/Espresso Macan arrive next month and I am wondering about windows tint. You put 40% on the rear and 15% on the front, did I understand correctly? I am very concerned about decreased visibility. So is 4/15 the darkest you can go without affecting visibility in your opinion?


    Thanks

    Hey Bud,

    You interested in doing a GTA Macan owners club thing with me? How about @Bull_Market?

    I'm not sure what it all means - my interpretation of this would be like when you see those guys in the parking lot of some starbucks hanging around in the same type of car... but presumably there's something more to it.

    Haven't been active on the forum - I've been dealing with some personal issues lately.

    My reason for thinking about doing this would be to meet some GTA ppl.

    Let me know if you're interested - would be team thing - i wouldn't want everyone relying on me for 100%

    Tim

    Hey

    I am a new member and just read your post with the winter setup on your macan!! Looks really nice!

    I am located in Toronto as well. Did you get them from Simply tire? I was looking at the same set up for mine. Do you mind me asking how much it was with taxes etc? Which tires did you go with?

    Did you get the TPMS? Did you get the staggered setup? How was the drive the other day with the first snow fall?

    Sorry for all the questions. Trying to catch up on all the pages regarding Macan and winter tires....too many pages!..lol
