    Hey Ravi,
    Thanks for the reply...I placed an order yesterday with pmctire. They were great to deal with. Went with a staggered fitment on 18" Gunmetal Replika 5 spoke wheel. I only live 5 minutes from work so not like I needed to break the bank.
    Best,
    Andy

    Hey Macanuck...I'm looking for winter tires/rims for my Macan and saw in an old post you've bought from PMC Tire in Quebec. Would you still recommend them. Their quote is more reasonable than Simplytire in T.O. $32 for shipping and $200 for TPMS! Your thoughts? A

    Macanuk,
    Love the profile name. I have a 2017 GTS on order so I'll need to change mine. Hey I live in Ottawa and was checking out your lift in your garage. I'm contemplating two of these for a garage I have under construction at my cottage and will have approx 11' 10" I think. Does your lift go that high? What was their service like? Why did you choose them?

    Its a Direct Lift Pro Park 8s. About $4000 (canadian) delivered and installed with all taxes. There are thousands of posts on this and other lifts. Check out The Garage Journal web site to start.

    I have had it for 4 years. Love it. It is quiet in operation. I have 10 ft ceilings. Just fits my Spyder and Macan. 11 ft would have been better. Oh well. It works and that's what counts !

    Parking outside in winter sucks around here. So I think it was a huge improvement for me.

    Hello Macanuck. I noticed the stacking device in your garage. Do you mind sharing the basics? Cost, installation and minimum garage height needed?

    I'd liek to avoid parking my Macan outside; Are you relatively pleased with the stacker? Is it noisy?

    Thanks a lot

    You be got to be kidding! I have the exact same Spyder and am picking up a 2015 Agate Grety Macan S in 2 weeks. Crazy! Love it! I bought the Spyder last year and totally love it but it is not a winter car. I filled that gap for the last year with a 2010 Golf which I like for the city but it's really not the car I want to drive daily. Thus the Macan S for the DD.

    Just thought I'd say hello from Vancouver.

    There are a few pics of mine on the forum. Here's an example where they are fairly clean.

    It's a satin finish. Hides the brake dust perfectly !

    Hi Macanuck - replying to an old post, but wondering if you have pics of your Agate Macan with powdercoated SD rims? I have been toying with idea of them since seeing an Agate Cayman GTS in the showroom with graphite powdercoated rims (matte, not shiny). My Macan is also agate with gloss black trim.
