And since the Macan uses the 3.0 VW turbo diesel, I checked into general maintenance. Uses about 9 liters of VW spec 407 oil if I remember. Figuring this would be less at NAPA, I checked into it there. $60 for 4 liters!!! The NAPA guy also said the glow plugs need changing every 50k km, and the plugs were 3-4x the cost of platinum/iridium spark plugs that last 100k.

So factoring in that the S and Turbo have genuine Porsche design engines, performance, etc., I decided the S was the way to go since I only drive about 15k annually.

Hope this helps.
