@WHT TGR, just to clarify - the noise that bothered me so much (and I think @trusted as well) wasn't the regular tread noise caused by the tires rolling down the road - as you suggested that comes with the territory.
The drumming sound (for me anyway) was more like a panel that resonated intermittently over some surfaces. From a noise perspective it changed the interior of the Macan from a luxury SUV to an empty slab-sided van. That's an exaggeration of course, but it matches my perception of the sound quite well.
Yikes ! It sounds like ( pun intended) it will take a another visit to the service department and or body shop . Sorry guys; It's not fun when one wants to enjoy something like ones car and there's a caveat to it . I hope you both get it resolved quickly . Good juju going your way .
