2021 Macan GTS (scheduled to arrive the 2nd week of December)
Wow, it's not even mine and I'm excited to see these new beauties. Anxiously awaiting the pics.
Wondering what would have changed between the time when you first found the 14-ways to be comfortable when comparing to when you experienced discomfort after buying?I adjusted the seat (14 way leather) but was unable to find the comfortable position I easily found when comparing seats in in-stock vehicles prior to ordering the car.
Again, it goes back to when you were testing and comparing the seat options. They are what they are, each offering varying degrees of adjustability and support that individuals can decide what works best for them. In your case, it appears that something changed from when you tested the three options and decided on which one would be the best for your particular situation.With a cranky back, I need the seat bottom quite flat so my lower back is straight and not arched. The seat adjustments in the new car did not allow this, like i've been able to find in every other Porsche I have driven, including my Cayman S.
Right. I think what you are telling the OP is run the seat controls all the way to each end of the spectrum and then it should be reset. Go from there to start your adjustments over again and see if this works.Try lifting the seat up fully before then lowering it to level with either the front xor the back (yes, xor, exclusive or)...do the same with the backrest, start at fully forward and then come back...same with the seat depth adjustment. It's entirely possible you've gotten the seat to a position where it can't be leveled out further because it's hit the limits of travel with the position of another adjustment.
I mean, maybe there's a reset if you get to the limits of travel in each way (similar to how windows recalibrate auto open/close by holding at extent). But what I've seen is some vehicles seats don't allow certain combinations of adjustment...e.g. maybe the seat can't go as low in the front with the seat bottom extended full forward. So worth trying running through the range of motion to see if he's getting limited in some way, I really doubt that the adjustments have changed much between the dealer vehicles and his order.Right.

I am loving our 2017 GTS, and I’ll miss it when the new one comes in a few weeks. Even though the new one is pretty much the same with just a few tweaks, I bonded with the current GTS on our 9,000 km round trip to LA and back a couple of years ago.Are you loving your new GTS?
Driving on crappy roads can be kinda fun, depending on who else is around. I had a 2006 530xi when I lived in Iowa, with dedicated snow tires. I took that baby out in the first good snow and checked the uphill, downhill, how fast can I stop, can I start back up after stopping midway up a steep hill stuff. Pretty **** fun, but definitely not as fun as performance tires on an empty cloverleaf.Well that's exciting! My car sat in the lot in Halifax for 10 days or so waiting for clearance. Hope yours doesn't. Having owned well over 100 cars, this is the first new car I've bought in the winter, it is definitely a different experience than buying it in summer. With the performance tires, it was a very careful trip from the dealership to the paint protection film shop in a different end of the city. Snow and especially slick roads on the short trip from the paint protection film shop to the tire shop. When I picked it up with the winter tires/wheels the roads had deteriorated quite a bit, so my timing was good for the drive home. Not much joy in driving in this weather. Takes the shine off the apple a bit.
