  1. i think after the last vomit inducing ride ... my wife is enjoying a slower pace of life .. and with the baby, well, gotta train him to love cars and the sudden acceleration ... then we can talk about changing cars haha ... but seriously .. over my dead body will i ever buy another porsche or any car from trans euro kars ... and judging by the PMs i got, I'm not the only one!! according to porsche their can exhibits absolutely zero faults le ... and their solution is just wind down the window and wipe lah .. this forum have table wiper ... now also have side view mirror wiper it seems
  2. the funny part is more than 120 pictures + videos sent to them, still insist its the phone lah, depth of vision lah, everything except the car which is faultless haha... ok lah, hopefully after this round, no more problems. damn leceh to keep taking out baby seat and moving it around also. else need @radx to perform exorcism on the car liao
  3. original was 5 years and extended by 2 for a total of 7 now. parts i think i read for major part replacement they do give warranty, i think a year iirc from the paperwork
  4. didnt even get a pinky promise
  5. collected the car today and the scope of work done as per the job sheet; 1. troubleshooting of rear power windows (maybe they are worried its a matter of time for the rear windows?) 2. front motor for window replaced 3. a/c heating/fresh air unit removed & reinstalled 4. changing of aircon distributor unit and replacement of battery since its almost kaput (surprising, since its 2.5 years old but its at their cost anyway, or could be a precautionary measure) so far driving home, seems all ok. dont see any issues. ill have to say a few prayers and hope for the best lol.
  6. unbiased review (forgetting that i ever owned a macan from SA for a few minutes) -ride is smooth, they gave me a v6 diesel -acceleration is pretty good after 2nd gear, given the torque-iness of a diesel i assume. if you floor it at first gear, there's a slight but noticeable jerk. -seats were comfortable, sitting position, steering etc very good. responsive. -mileage also v good (because its a diesel) -car came with retractable spoiler, which was pretty nice (but im sure is an expensive option) -car even had additional a/c vents behind on the A pillar for the rear passenger, and im sure baby appreciated -handling is far superior to the macan, i assume because the CG is also much lower -the bt was rubbish, dont even have audio streaming, phone wise not very good as the screen was resistive and not capacitive. need to press hard on the screen, but i guess this car must be at least 6-7 years old, so expected. -paddle shifters were rubbish, as they were the +/- on both sides, and the shifting is a very loud click. (not the traditional kind of shifter). hated it for sure. if i didnt have a kid, might be a good choice(or if the kids were a lot older). 3.5* out of 5.

  8. wife : this car is quite comfo... me: dont even finish your sentence ... currently not practical for my use, had to make double trip the other day, cos coulnt ferry wife / baby / MIL & FIL at one go. (but jokes aside, their current pana loaner is quite well maintained) easy for them to pawn off i suppose, but still, difficult at this current point to change car and oh yes, current work done: power window motor replaced (i assume thats basically the whole winding up/down mechanism) ac distributor housing has been changed (i assume thats where they found the mould) car is ready tmr afternoon finally ...
  9. my wife laugh like hell .. she said, did u just get rewarded for complaining?!
  10. ok i have to admit, those are pretty good haiz, i have a feeling they will simply waste time and keep insisting to repair. later next owner say i sold them lemon more problems nevermind, with enough practise in the rain, and winding down the windows to safely wipe the side view mirrors, i can use my arms as signal stalk and save $10k
  11. its called hotboxing even if they did find they wont tell me lah. already told them twice how to do their job, both times never listen. you think they will start now haha
  12. LOL. anyway, looks like replacing the entire distributor unit again it seems. (which is the exact same thing they did last time). will be ready by mid next week hopefully. claims there's mould inside (again). not sure how come mould can keep getting inside, when i dont even dare eat in the car.
  13. yup, this is my 5th or 6th car, never encountered this side view mirror issue before in my life. even when driving -30 degrees in boston for many years, never had my side view mirrors fog up (hell, i drove a ford throughout iceland for 2 weeks and never had such a thing happen). but of course, i still think should be some electronics issue somewhere .. i mean, how can the ecu also go crazy. side view mirror is produced by 1000s in batches. the only thing i can think of is the heating element. of course, this issue was fixed when their staff sent me the whatsapp ... thats when they finally back down after he said actually they dont know how to fix ... (so i guess the fastest way is just replace wholesale, which worked, and was all that i originally asked for) in terms of safety now, the car is fine, its the constant other issues thats causing downtime. since they've updated me on the repaired window on tuesday, there's been zero updates on the aircon. (half of me is shitting my pants they might have possibly found a major issue, thats why so quiet for 3 days ... either that, or plenty of testing to finally find the source of the issue)
  14. easier to follow porsche asia's instructions and wind down the window and wipe (when its safe, of course ... safety is paramount to porsche)
