Well hope to collect my X4 next week but wondered if I made right decision over the Macan, spent some time on the Macan Forum and this was interesting

I miss nothing. Check out my thread about how much disliked my Macan i had for 3 weeks.

I love my X4 100X more..

The Macan has more issues than I can name.. Dozens and Dozens of horrid porsche nonsense issues that can't be fixed.

Loving my X4

Hope my fears dissipate when I get the car. Never ordered anything without test driving, the Macan was a cracker and whenever I see the Porsche dealership I wonder. Just a few more days.

Brotha, Trust me in person the X4 is way better looking than the Macan and everything about the X4 is nicer and more refined!

What color did you get ?

I would think you'd miss:
  1. Nicer looking exterior (X4 has a face and behind only a mother could love)
  2. More refined interior
  3. Higher performance
  4. The crazy expensive option list.

Anyone see any reviews that put the X4 on top?

I actually think in xline mode X4 looks better, msport is another matter. all reviews the gap in difference of the two is small not like people want you to believe, for me it was a tough choice, never bought a Porsche but stuck to what I know. I think reading all these press reviews and having not test driven car when I ordered are what is making me question my choice, will compare better when I take delivery. But those Macan seats are just sublime!

Side profile Macan vs X4

This Macan cannot be more beautiful in my eyes as attached even in msport side view.

Like what this Macan owner said below after his 30 day ownership, nobody will look twice at a Macan for they think it's a Cayenne which I thought so when I saw it next to a bunch of Cayennes which are boring to look at so the Macan is equally boring visually.

Thats awesome and truly shows how much better the styling is in the BMW.. And just get inside and drive the BMW and you quickly find out how Porsche is 10 years behind the times.

The Back of the Macan is HOOOORID !! Its side profile shows what a dumpy back looks like.. Reminds me of an Eggplant actually !!!

Wow Great pic I love it !!!

I saw my first Macan up close today (4 of them actually in different colors).... I am so glad i made the correct decision and bought an X4. I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder but I find the Macan boring and outdated looking already. I would certainly buy an SQ5 over the Macan on looks.... Sorry Macan Lovers but X4 rules!

Chopper - You are spot on man..

Finally people are seeing them and in the right colors with the right rims , its unreal !!!

I am really loving mine so much !!

The SQ5 as you said is 100% so much better looking than the Macan as well.

The Q5 body is great and I hope next year they can better it when they redesign it..

For now the X4 is new and unique , gorgeous and fast and fun !!
