Exciting day! After trading my '17 GTS to purchasing a '23 S to trading less than a month on a '23 GTS... she was delivered Friday. I was so worried I might be disappointed, but it is beautiful!

Platinum GT wheels were my close second choice. I ended up preferring the CWM with red calipers and matte black GT wheels of the GTS package. Couldn鈥檛 resist it :)

She looks gorgeous. What was your decision in buying a new S, then quickly trading it in for a GTS? What are your driving and performance impressions between the two?

Tony, if you change your mind, you can always get them painted鈥 Get aboard the Satin Platinum train - LOL (now I have a ticket too and love how my Sport Classic replicas look).

Well, I made a stupid decision. I owned a GTS and was looking for a new Macan. I read that the S model received the GTS engine in the '23 model. Finding a GTS was nearly impossible and I thought Gentian Blue was nice. So, I drove four hours to pick up the S, and while driving home, I realized I made a mistake. Then when I pulled it in the garage next to my '23 BMW X3M in Tanzanite Blue, Gentian Blue looked purple. I am very unhappy with wasting all that money, but in the end I knew I wouldn't be happy. The S is very ice, but once you own a GTS, you won't be happy with another model IMO,

Hey. The heart wants what the heart wants. At least you knew your mistake and rectified it. I have a GTS and drove an S right after it. The S is very nice and I will probably never use the power on my GTS. But damnit. I like that it鈥檚 there. But surprised you don鈥檛 like Gentian Blue. That鈥檚 what I chose and I love it.

Glad to hear you are finally happy and hope all works out. You will, with a GTS, fit right in on this forum, as there appears to be no other noteworthy Macan model...GTS owners dominate, crow and/or BIMCO (b*tch, moan and complain) interminably. I am sure you will be different now.

I am such a huge fan of darker blue, that I am surprised Gentian Blue was not for me. It would have been if it wasn't for that BMW in Tanzanite Blue sitting right next to it. I will need to post a photo of the two side by side for the group to see. I have to say those wheels are what makes me love this vehicle. So glad I sprung for those.
