delboystoyFinally bowed down the diesel dissing morons who are causing the prices of diesel cars to drop like a stone and traded in my beloved Macan S D for an even nicer Night Blue GTS. Although I am loving the GTS and everything about it what I can't get me head round is the MPG and why the diesel cars are getting such bad press. My SD would easily get 35-40 mpg where as in the GTS I am lucky if a I get 25 mpg and this is only obtained if you never stick your right foot down to the floor, which lets face facts is only going to happen if I am stuck in a traffic jam !! Apart from missing the MPG on the SD I have to say that the GTS is not a lot different to drive (My SD was quite highly spec'd) apart from one crucial aspect that all Porsche's should have and that is the exhaust note, I did not realize how much I missed it and it only gets better when you turn on the PSE and push the 'Sport Plus' button not only does the car become even more of a beast but the exhaust noises changing up and down are amazing. The alcantara sports seats are nice and a bit more figure hugging as well as providing more support but not as comfortable as the 14 way adjustable seats in the SD. No panoramic sunroof in the new one either but I can live without that in the hope that this car will make me smile everyday which so far it is !!
