Not sure if this is a normal thing with the Macan GTS but when the car decelerates and it begins to reach the ranges between 2600 - 2400 RPM there is always this rough vibration right under the center arm console under the car and then stops once RPM reaches 2200 or less. Very weird, I can live with it if it's normal or maybe there is a mod I can do to minimize this annoying vibrations.

I've got 2000 miles on my GTS and aside from that I LOVE THIS BEAST!!

I saw this mod on Flat 6 website and was wondering if this might fix the problem... Powerflex Transmission Mount Inserts (Macan)

Thank you in advance!

I might suggest鈥 Keep in mind if you install that and the dealership finds it, they鈥檒l probably void the warranty. Then whether it caused it or not, and we all know it鈥檚 vibrating now, they鈥檒l say the mount caused it any refuse to fix whatever the real problem is right now.

Take it in and get it on the record. In writing. If nothing is done it鈥檚 on the record should it get worse. IMO鈥

Always in the same gear? If only in one gear, it could be a driveshaft vibration. Just a thought...

UPDATE: I went to the dealer a few days ago and drove the 2022 GTS they had outside... Same sound at the same RPM. It's a PDK thing that people need to get used to... I was relived it wasn't something exclusive to my car. BUT I'm curious to know if there's any solutions to this... It's the ONLY thing that bugs me about this beast.
