If you go to settings (steering wheel button) when in the menu that shows various temps/pressures (Vehicle), you can get to the setting that changes what's displayed and where.
Turbo PSI, Oil Pressure, Coolant temp etc.
You can also adjust that bottom part as well, I have time and date there.
Yes, in fact I thought oil temperature is one of the "default" displays.

The Spinning Clock

A) Not universally known here: the analog clock positions its hands straight up, after a period of inactivity, and then spins to the correct time, upon new activity.

This has been discussed in at least these threads:

- The 2015 thread https://www.macanforum.com/threads/dash-clock-erratic.69801/ (@Convert, @santastico, @MrMarc, @reguy, et al.)

- The 2017 thread https://www.macanforum.com/threads/dashboard-clock-spinning-when-door-opens.140938/ (@Finner, et al.)

- The 2018 thread https://www.macanforum.com/threads/spinning-clock-on-the-dash.155930/ (@jddonahoe, @rosen39, @Dkayak, @Arnold_T, et al.)

B) Not stated anywhere that I could find, this "period of inactivity" has a definite time interval, and I recently determined this specific interval, as noted in my post from Sep. 20, 2019: https://www.macanforum.com/threads/revealed-interval-until-clock-strikes-noon.173308/

That's also about the time that other things such as in my case wireless phone charger stops outputting power.
Has a little green LED on it that I spent time on waiting to make sure it doesn't always pull power.
Felt like I was outside forever doing various things until it turned off.:)

The dash top clock (and I’m assuming the Sport Chrono pod), is very easy to take apart and clean.

The clock on our GTS was actually cloudy/dirty on the inside. I originally thought the glass was just very reflective, and therefore would look hazy in certain lighting, but it ended up really having a film of dust or dirt on the glass itself. (Not sure how that happened, btw, but it did.)

The clock comes right off of the dash panel. It’s held on by two (T25?) torx screws.

(The dash panel just pops up at the front, and unclips by pulling the whole loosened panel forward.)

The front of the clock just unscrews, and the glass is a separate loose piece. It’s nice that it’s real glass, and not plastic. Very easy to clean, and re-install.

Looks much, much better now. Glad I didn’t bring it to the dealer for this. Very easy to do a good job....

If the battery in your keyfob is getting low the tailgate will only open about an inch if you activate it from the fob. If it opens normally using the drivers door switch or the rear wiper switch replace the CR2032 battery in your keyfob and life will be good again.

Maybe this is an intentional early warning or maybe it’s just my keyfob. But with passive entry and drive you don’t want to run out of battery and not be able to get into your Macan.

Especially on a cold rainy night parked at the airport.....

Here is a nifty trick my wife told me. When driving my Macan she was amazed that the further she drove, the more fuel the car had. :oops:

Luckily she figured out her "blonde moment" on her own - the fuel gauge in her Cayenne is reversed from my Macan, so she just assumed full was on the left in my car too... :cool:

I'm not sure if this was mentioned, but I was collecting "lost" coins at the base of the front seats and noticed each front seat had a storage compartment! Never noticed this before.

Yep, it's been noted before, with some threads discussing the best use of the small areas. Here are a couple:

I just received my 2020 Mamba green Macan S and love the large screen. When purchasing consider getting the full camera option. When you go into reverse, you get the normal backup camera view but you can select back panorama view. This view gives you a much greater view to both sides of the area to your left and right when you start backing our of a parking place. I feel the most dangerous thing I do in a car is back out of a parking spot. If you back in, there is a front panorama view.
