not going to happen.
Between regulations . . . trying to get folks (who have never done such stuff) in the shop to do it . . . doing the work out of production order, the ancillary stuff that would have to be removed, reinstalled and placed forever at risk of coming loose or having been reinstalled incorrectly by (see "who has never " above) I wouldn't take their steering column if they offered it. For $500 you can buy a couple shirts and a thermal coffee mug or make a 8% down payment on a headlight replacement.

I was disappointed to collect my Macan without the electronic steering wheel but I expected Porsche AG or Porsche Canada to let me know it happened, perhaps even apologize and make it right somehow. The fact more than a month later, I still didn’t get an answer or even acknowledgement to my emails is inexcusable. This is not a way to earn brand loyalty.

Totally agree. I think the dealership model just let the brand (Porsche) and dealership play the blame game and leave the consumers in the dust. When I was dealing with the voucher, PCNA told me to ask the dealer and the dealer told me that it's a corporate thing (in fact the dealer told me the voucher can't be applied to the car because the voucher isn't effective till I buy the car)

Now I'm dealing with the amplifier delay and it's been over a month since my car has been delivered to the dealership but can't pick it up. After contacting both sides again it's back to dealer saying Porsche corporate allocate parts and Porsche corporate saying only the dealer knows about the parts...

Anyone have new updates to their delivery dates - delayed, early, or on time?
Got confirmation from my SA my build locked on 4/21…finally. Only 1.5 months later than first expected.

No changes to the expected dates that he last gave me (expected V260 is 5/20, V300 is 6/3, delivery expected early-mid July).

Does anybody know if we can install the electric steering column in my 2022 Macan S with premium package plus With the adaptive sport seats +18 way with comfort memory ?
Does it have the proper wiring harness that would accommodate the electric steering column ?

Porsche has said that they will not be retrofitting the electric steering column on cars built without it. Your best bet would be to ask the parts department what would be required to install it yourself...

Better plan on investing at least $3500 to retrofit !

I feel you are missing the point. It is not about having a manual or electric steering but rather about Porsche selling a premium product for a lot of $$$, deciding to remove some features and never bothering to inform customers. To make it worse, they don't respond to customer and dealer questions. I now question whether PAS components are also missing from my build, and of course, no answer on that either.

Just got an update from my SA that my 22 GTS was due to be built in the second week of April, and because of supply chain issues it's now scheduled to be built next week (second week of May).

Looks like there's about a four week delay at the moment (at least for GTS builds).
