I just signed up for my Macan Forum account w00t! Was deciding on a new Audi or Porsche and just
signed up for the Audi Club of NA. I was holding out to hit the six months membership minimum
to get my Audi Club of NA discount on a new Audi. Alas decided to go with a Macan which is my first Porsche
double w00t (and there goes my $39 membership to Audi Club NA)...

Outgoing:
2018 Audi S4 Prestige [April 2017]. Replaced my 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT. Missed the SUV
but not Jeep. When I was shopping for my SRT Jeep, I had the Macan Turbo on the shortlist but
was too much scrilla. I should have just gotten the Macan would have lost less money than the Jeep and
prob would have still had the Macan. Oh well, I get my 2020!

Incoming:
2020 Macan Turbo in Sapphire Blue

Trimmings:
  • 21" 911 Turbo Wheels.
  • Full Black Leather
  • 14 Way Seats
  • Premium Package Plus
    • All that stuff that goes in there...
  • Window Trim in High Gloss Black
  • Trailer Hitch
  • Air Suspension with PASM
  • LED Matrix Headlights
  • Thermally & Noise Insulated Glass
  • Park Assist
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Seat Heating Front + Rear
  • Sunblind for Rear Side Windows
  • Carbon Fiber Interior Trim
  • Aluminum Gear Selector
  • Illuminated Aluminum Door-Sill Guards
  • Burmester YES!
Super excited! I forgoed the Sport Chrono Package, Torque Vectoring Differential, and PEC (I even live in ATL ha!). I have that sport diffs on my
Audi and I never drive my car anywhere close to the limit. I am usually stuck in traffic blasting music to/from the airport so this is perfect.

Sales Things:
Approximately April 2020 delivery date. Since mine was over 100k, the dealership wanted a 10% deposit which I paid.
MSRP for now.

Cheers!

Congrats, you won't regret getting Burmester and smart combination with the insulated glass. The downside of it is that you don't want to get out of your car when you arrive at your destination... Other options look really good as well, the new carbon fiber trim looks so good.

Love it, great build, now I want one too. I sold my Macan GTS after three years to shake things up, got an Audi S4 that is excellent, but aching to get a Macan again. Just have not decided yet if I should get a used Turbo PP or hold out for the new Turbo. Thoughts anyone?

Not too late to get that PEC delivery- it’s so worth it! It’s a fabulous day with a tour of the museum...I saw the remodel shop, amazing! Lunch an laps on the track. Call your salesperson, you won’t regret it!

Sweet from S4 to Macan, we are like twins!

I'll let you know for sure. Might be a minute until mine comes in [EPA pending and all that jazz].

This is my second S4, before my SRT had a 2013 S4 Prestige. My pair of S4s are my favorite cars.

If I decided to keep a car, I would have gotten an RS5 Sportback. TBH, the interiors are so similar they are the same design platform as my S4 is current still. Liked the engine in the RS5, now most of the engine ended up in the Macan Turbo.

I am a big dude, 6'5 and 290lbs, I bump my head in the Sportback getting in and out. My partner she has a 2018 Macan Base and I slide right in and out and super comfy. I got my 2018 S4 with the warm weather package [non-sport seats] and also easy to slide in and out.

Cheers!

All right, please keep me posted, that delay on the new Turbos is painful...:)

Very nice and thumbs up on the Burmester/insulated glass combo. I have it and it's like a concert hall, I've been listening to Says by Nils Frahm yesterday quite loud, it's concert quality :)

At least here where I live the Turbo comes automatically with 18-way seats. Did you particularly want the 14-way?

Congrats! Our builds are almost the same except I have a GTS w/ sport chrono and black spyders. What did you decide on the side blades? I have CF blades. I’m so jealous of the new PCM. I had a new base loaner and my ‘17 PCM feels like an Atari - LOL

Went with the 14-way ones they are less aggressive on the bolstering; I am a pretty big dude ha! My Audi S4 has the non-sport [warm weather] seats and love them. They are pretty similar to the Porsche 14-ways.

Sweet! I think by the default on the 2020 Turbos the side blades are body color. Kept with body color.

I would never buy a Turbo without Sport Chrono but otherwise great spec!
