Thanks for the quick response.Hey Stig, great user name.
There is lots of discussion in the forum about pricing. The general consensus is that in Canada, you will pay sticker price regardless of MY17 or MY18 or location. Having said that, you might get the all weather mats thrown in and a small discount (total <$1000). In Canada, the MY18 is likely a better deal because you get the Nav system included in the base price. Also, the pricing seems to be a bit better in Canada than the US, but that is likely due to slightly different content.
BTW, wife and I were originally born in Calgary, but now live in SW Ontario (3 h from YYZ)
The base price was also increased 3k which is more than the 1.9k NAV option on the MY17.In Canada, the MY18 is likely a better deal because you get the Nav system included in the base price.
Yes Costco does have auto services here in Canada. The only ones I have seen are for Ford and Lincoln.Does Costco have auto services in Canada? They do in the US, and they have Porsche dealers in the program. I kid you not. Price through that was about 4% off MSRP, iirc.
My thoughts were the same. I was thinking 35k would be a fair value. Yes it has M Sports pack, Premium, Park Assist and Connected . It also has 3M protection, brand new summer tires went in about a week ago.your dealer is low balling you on the trade. I say $34,000 trade in would be fair (assuming it has M package, Prem & Exec)
As for the discount, in the Toronto area, people are now getting around 2-2.5% off on the Macan (custom ordered)
Unless the recent opening of Porsche North Toronto has flooded the market with allocations, you will get the car sooner for less buying out west vs Toronto. Thats what I did to get my GTS.My thoughts were the same. I was thinking 35k would be a fair value. Yes it has M Sports pack, Premium, Park Assist and Connected .

I will try to sell the car privately at this point in time.
I am going to contact some Toronto Dealers to see whether they are willing to sell a Macan to me. They may have to ship to me because otherwise I will be paying PST.
Welcome to my world Stig. Re your trade in, we all pay the price when trading one brand for another. Re your discount in Canada, good luck. I was very fortunate with Porsche Centre Oakville but I was an exception to the rule and very grateful but my Macan was heavily optioned which helped during my negotiations. Good luck finding the "right" GTS, you'll no doubt end up ordering as most here have done but the wait is quite a PITA as my 9 months will attest lol. On a happy note, mine's finally here and will be picked up in a week or so. Best of luck!!I thought I will post an update , test drove a Macan S over the weekend and it is amazing.
Both dealers in Alberta have made it clear that they are not willing to move on the price of the GTS unless I am going to pick one from the lot. I know that will not be the case because I want it to be configured the way I want. Based on the allocation that is available to the dealers it looks like if I place an order now I will get my vehicle around October.
All the good news ends there
When I initially discussed the options with the dealer in town I was told that my trade in (2014 BMW 335 GT M Sport fully loaded with 66K) will be around 30k to 35k. I thought that was little bit on the lower side but I was optimistic that I will be able to get a slightly better trade in than what they quoted. Yesterday I was told that the trade in value for my car from the dealer will be 30k. - I think they are really trying to low ball me.
What you guys think?
You can still get your 13% back on your private sale by passing it through the dealer. Invisible to the buyer as well. I've done that every single time I sold a car.In Ontario they typically low ball by 13%. Because that is what you save in HST by trading rather than selling on your own and bringing cash to the table. So remember that when you are comparing what you can get on the open market, versus a trade.

Yeah the fee is usually 500$. My Porsche dealer did it for free this time.I did that last time as well. Sold my Lexus through the Porsche dealer. I just had to bring the buyer, and pay the fee to the Porsche dealership to do the transaction that way. Saves thousands in taxes that way.
