I’ve noticed these have corroded on our 2016 Macan Turbo, what’s the likelihood of a warranty replacement?

I’m passing an OPC later you see.

Alternatively, how much are they as the look pretty bad Sad

I'd hope that on a 2 year car they would be replaced under warranty although they may cite issues such as types of wheel cleaner you' may have used being a contributing factor.

A good-will contribution towards the hefty cost would be the least I'd expect.

Please let us know the outcome.

2007 Porsche 997 Turbo

PostPosted: Fri Nov 16, 2018 9:19 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

Recently had both the caps & exhaust tips replaced for the same reason. Same age of vehicle with less than 12k on the odometer.
I asked if they would be covered under an extended warranty, but unfortunately the answer was no.
This is a worry as I wouldn't want to be replacing them at my own expense very often.
The new parts now have multiple ceramic coatings followed by a couple of coats of wheel sealant in an effort to try and stop this happening in the future.

Time will tell I guess...
