I agree with @grim . This was difficult. I wanted to answer the poll but I cannot. I presumed that MF cost me 3-4K but I tried to calculate the net expense by adding up the options I chose because of MF and subtract the options I originally chose and then declined and see what that figure is. As it turns out,
-MF cost me at least $5425
-MF saved me at least $7830

I know that after reading MF, I
-removed the colored wheel centers, the front skid plate, entry and drive, insulating privacy glass, LKA/LCA, sun blinds, infotainment package, and the painted key remote cover
-but added PTV, 14 ways with partial garnet, and comfort lighting.

I presumed it cost me 2-3 K but when I did the math, the net amount is a $2405 savings!.

Perhaps I read into something with this poll that is not there. When I read the poll question again, the question is whether MF influenced my build and it did. It did, but it saved me money and when I first read the poll I presumed this poll was designed to see how much my reading MF cost me.

So, I guess I can answer it after all!

Net, net (additions minus subtractions as a result of member comments), MF "cost" me a bit under $2K.

The piece of mind MF provided on some of the options I really had no idea about (since dealer had nothing to look at), priceless.

I'd say the MF influenced to my decision with the interior. I was set with black/saddle brown and had never really considered "espresso" but after seeing pics and hearing some others talk about the fact that it may be to dark, I immediately took more serious interest. As a result I upgraded to espresso to complement the dark blue metallic exterior of my Turbo and I'm pleased to have done so. The cost was an additional 3K. I love it!!!

May 15 delivery. Dark Blue Macan Turbo, 911 wheels, espresso interior, glossy black window trim, Premium Plus including pano roof, 18 way bucket seats, Air Suspension and more ......

Well hotice can repeat his post but "this forum makes people spend more money on their cars(We really do) but I want statistics!" That is not net, that is how much more did you spend because of the forum.

I had my build locked in before I found this forum, I still have no regrets how I optioned my Macan and do not feel I would have changed anything either way. This is the 4th porsche I have ordered so I did have a good idea of what I could expect.

I started with 60-63k build before I came to this forum and once I got involved with this forum, my build rocketed to 70k+.. Heck I even seriously thought about a Turbo at 85k...

My build was submitted 4 months prior to launch, and there was little/no information out there at that point, so I was on my own. Wouldn't have changed anything even with the information I have today.

Costs - no - I stuck to my guns on my options ( though I optioned nearly everything anyway hehe ).

What it did convince me of is that its *better* to go with what *YOU* want and not what others want for you. I wanted a blacked-out, screaming stealth beast and my husband and son wanted a repeat of the same color scheme as my current white body/black roof Evoque coupe. I ordered white due to their insistence and then came here. After reading all the threads on getting what you want if you're going to spend the money I changed my color and never looked back. Happier than ever and I don't even have her yet!
