@vvvarunv :

1) Congrats.

2) Now that you have one in the flesh, what do you think of the Mamba? Over the top? Just right for extroverts? Changes color well with ambient light changes? Over the top, but what the heck?
Thanks. I think the photos don’t do justice to the color. It’s really this deep rich green and not so bright green as in the pics

Can confirm that this is very true! Mamba really is one of those colours that looks stunning in person - no camera will ever do it justice. Congrats again, enjoy in great health! ?

Beautiful! Had you seen a mamba green Macan in person before you ordered or did you roll the dice like some of us?

The Mamba is one thing, but you folks with the light seats -- you must have guts, or no grandchildren to sit in them, or ...

But okay, yep, very nice car. Enjoy!

I have seen your interior in person. It is gorgeous! I just hope you don’t have kids or pets! ?

I changed my car's color several times before settling on Carmine Red. At that point, I hadn’t see mamba green, red, or Miami blue in person. I saw a Miami blue Macan a couple weeks ago and it was breathtaking to me and, like mamba green, impossible for capture in a photo.

Nice build. The only thing I regret about my build is not getting the 14 way seats. The 8 way has very little lumbar support but I am hoping my body will get used to it in a couple of weeks.

The GTS seems like a good value for money compared to S. It only came out after a few week after my order but no worries

No grandchildren yet. But I have a messy toddler son. Let’s see how the interior will hold up. Will enjoy till it last :)

I've gotta say though, your specification is absolutely stunning. Yes with the Carmine Red, it'll look incredible with the black wheels and highlights, and it's completely understandable that you'd go that way anyway (especially if you haven't seen Mamba Green in person). Admittedly, I was lucky enough to see the green prior to ordering, but it's certainly one of those tones that you'd wan't to sight before pulling the trigger.

Really nice. Congrats!

I had a really light (almost white) beige interior on my last Mercedes. It wasn't that bad to keep clean if you kept up with it. Biggest problem is the blue from my jeans rubbing off on the seats but that cleans off too.

Thanks. Yes, a Macan S can cost more than an identically equipped GTS. I chose the 14-ways over the 18-ways because some people felt the latter was less comfortable and 18 ways (2x9 controls) seems a tad excessive
