On the Macan they drop the entire front subframe with engine, transmission and front suspension all in one unit.

It's by design, and it's a good one. It makes reaching all the tricky fasteners easier and there are a lot of quick disconnects. Plus the dealers are well practiced.

When I had my boxster and had to take the engine out I started with the transmission and then removed the engine. When I was doing it I was sure you could drop the whole thing out as I described above

Was at the dealer buying a gasket. I saw a boxster on the lift and they were dropping the whole thing. With the right lift would be a quick job
No doubt. But someone above suggested labor to replace a transmission could be 20 hours and $5000 if not more. Seriously doubt that’s correct.

OP - I recently bought a CPO 15 Macan Turbo. Interested to see how things go with yours. Good luck and keep us posted!
