I still remember like it was yesterday…. You were conceived (ordered) on June 2014, and were born on 10/23/2014. You decided to stay in your mother’s womb (body shop) for an additional month. Yes, you were born a month late and I can still remember my desperation through that time.

244449


Because of that, you were born with a body color spoiler… and I picked you up shortly after on Nov 25.

244450


You were only 26 miles old…. So young, so eager to be driven.

244451


I still remember when I changed your shoes for the first time, in preparation for the Winter.

244452


During your first snow….

244453


… you couldn’t wait to get out and play…

244454


We took you to special places…

244455


During your teenage years, you wanted to look slicker, and we bought you wheel spacers and lowered your stance…. You looked great…

244456


You grew a beard (front spoiler)… you looked more mature and like a true gentleman.

244457


I took care of you when you got a cold…

244458


continues….

Then again through other illnesses…

244459


Through it all, you were resilient and always good…

Your voice changed…. As you got older… got more classy and pleasant to the ear.

244460


244461


I changed your vocal chords too…

244462


Today, you had your 100,000 mile birthday. An important milestone.

244463


And today, at 100,000 miles, you look as young as the first day I picked you up…

244473

Through it all, you had been fantastic.

Yes, you are getting older, but much better with time. Like a good bottle of wine.

You had given me one of the thrills of my lifetime. And I only hope we can continue to make memories together….

On to 200,000 miles… ;)

Freakin’ awesome… just awesome. Congrats on the 100K and many more enjoyable miles to come!
….And 100% truth be told, if the first 33K miles had been put on the car by ME, I would still be driving the GTS…

Nice write up and a nice personal touch. Congrats.

What wheels do you have on in photo # 7, from that angle they don't look like spiders but they do look sharp.

That’s my winter setup…. 20” OZ Racing Superturismo Dakar (Metal Gun).

2 - 20x8.5
2 - 20x10

They may be discontinued already. Bought them in 2014.

I use the same rims for my winters. FYI the original porsche center caps fit in them
Yes I know… I tested them, but fit was somewhat lose, I feared losing them.

Great write-up @Santirx. That's quite a journey...congrats.

What's the story behind the body coloured spoiler? I'm asking because I ended-up with one as well on my GTS. Mine is jet black metallic so I didn't even notice till I washed it for the first time.

They are really nice, love the colour. I'm looking for a winter setup for my Night Blue Metallic GTS on order, and I think they would look awesome on it. Thanks for sharing the photos

Hey @TripleL, great to hear from you. Many have come and gone since 2014, but you had been one of the originals in the forum with consistent presence.

BTW…you need to drive that Macan more. If you can’t, lend it to me for a couple of months… I’ll bring it up to speed…:D
