Servicing Costs

I have a major 4 year service coming up on the Macan SD and have been quoted the fixed price of £560 + £95 Brake fluid change + £416.80 PDK drain and fill  - and no PCGB discount. 
Does anyone else get discount on their fixed price servicing?
I'd be interested to hear from you.
Regards,
 
Clive

Mine goes in on 11th October, I'll let you know.
 
But, and this is poor timing I know, our Boxster 718S has just had its two year service + brake fluid change + air con service. I was told that it was all necessary to reserve the option to take out an extended warranty later.
 
Also; I was told that their fixed price servicing was cheaper than the standard tariff less PCGB 10%.

Might I politely suggest that you post this as a new post, this thread is not about steering racks.

My PC tell me that their fixed price servicing is lower than standard costings less PCGB 10%.
 
My 4 year service came out as follows (figures inc. vat);
 
Major service £560.00
PDK gearbox oil change £481.80
Spark plug change £315.80
Air filter change £171.92
Brake fluid change £114.00
Air con service £99.00
MOT £54.00
Total £1,796.52
 
I think I now need a strong beer or two.

At least I don't have the spark plug replacement, but guess you have to add in extended warranty renewal too.

David,
The maintenance schedule for my Macan GTS states that the PDK Oil Change is at 40,000 miles but no later than 6 years, same applies to the Spark Plugs so I assume your Macan has done 40,000 miles?
 
My first service (Minor) was in March this year, the car had done 15,515 miles and was exactly 2 years old, it cost £510 for an Oil Change, new Pollen Filter, Brake Fluid change, spare bottle of oil and top up the windscreen washer fluid with the remainder (about 80%)  in the bottle left for me.
 
My next service is due in March 2020 but I doubt the car will have done more than 30,000 miles so I will not be having a PDK oil change or spark plugs change.

Hi All
I cannot believe and get my head around the justification for these prices.
Major service £560.00 +Spark plug change £315.80+ Air filter change £171.92 = £1047.72
OEM plugs are £17 x 6 £102, Mobil1 0-40 oil about £80 for 9 ltrs, air filter 2 x £35 £70  so all about £250
A few sundries that's £800 in labour charges Wow
I can understand all of the above as stand alone prices, but not stand alone prices just lumped together, that's a total rip off.IMHO.
Just my 2p worth.

Andy,
 
No-one is disagreeing with you.
Position over a keg as regards warranty etc.

I have my car (Macan S Petrol registered October 2014) back now and my guarantee & maintenance booklet states that;
 
Major service (Maintenance at years 4, 8, 12 etc) due now
PDK oil and filter change is due at least once every four years (or after 36k miles if sooner) - first time now
Spark plug change is due at least once every four years (or after 12k miles if sooner) - first time now
Air filter change is due at least once every four years (or after 72k miles if sooner) - first time now
Brake fluid change due every two years - second time, this time
 
All the above looks to be per the book.
 
Air con is interesting. My service book has had a page inserted at the back titled; Air conditioning service history and an air con treatment and full drain and re-gas has been done at each service, 2 years and 4 years. I was told that I would not be able to extend the warranty (currently covered until 10/2019) if this had not been done now.

My Macan is due a service next month and have the following quoted for a minor service and 111 check:
Porsche reading £520.40 and 111 check for warranty extension £252.They wouldn't do any cheeper for a minor only half price with major at £680.00.
Porsche swindon £430.00  and will do the 111 check for £100 when done with minor  service.
 
I have asked reading to explain why this is such a big difference and have been told basically because they are the main dealer in uk they have bigger over heads and so charge a higher labour rate.
I brought the car from Reading but wouldn't again Swindon have been great even though I didint buy the car from them.

I get the 111 check free when combined with a service at my PC.

Hi, I have a 2007 Boxster S with 15000 miles, all OPC servicing up to now. I have a price from Porsche Solihull for major service of £909.00. This is for Oil and Filter change, inspection and test drive. Does anyone think this is a bit much? I would be prepared to pay 595.00 but 900? any comments welcome. Do Porsche no want to service these older cars?
