Small update-

Life has gotten in the way of progress on the car a lot lately, but this past week I was finally able to get some things rolling!

I discovered a new appreciation for wrap installers. I got about 3/4 of the way finished before running out of material, which is now out of stock everywhere.

The wrap has come back off (for now). The red does look great, though!

In order to remove my failed wrap attempt, I had to tear the front end back apart. I took this time to tidy up some previous work, and take note of what needs to be done in the future.

I did find a steering rack bolt that was slightly loosened, and my Vacuum pump appears to be leaking oil for the 4th or 5th time now.

I also went ahead and did front brake pads. Still loving the Macan BBK.

I managed to finally get the axle heatshield installed, and fender liners went in. Although it's 4+ colors at the moment, the car is staring to come back together!

Just got the car back from wrap. I think it turned out great, and am mostly just excited for it to all be one color again!

I still need to re-pin and install the diff module, and clean up the small oil leak/odds and ends on the car. Getting close 🤟

That looks sweet. Yes. Almost looks like a Midori Green.

Fitment is tight
Unless the springs are silly high rates with no compression. Im sure it rubs with that fitment on aggressive driving. 265s or 255s it’s looks and you can see the driver front fender been worked by the wheel or a roller.

Looks really good though
