oil change

i have just been quoted £350 for an oil & filter change on my year old 12500 mile 2.0 ltr petrol Macan. A message to do this came up on the dash.
Is this right, it seems a ridiculously high price for such a simple task and for a car with a 2 year service interval.

    and for a car with a 2 year service interval.

    I'd refer to a PC and ask them why does it need to be done now when the standard service interval is 2 years/20k miles.
    If you service the car per the manual the warranty will cover you. Some (like my 90 year old dad) like to change o&f annually no matter what the book says. In the past a Peugeot dealer tried to make me do this and I pointed to the manual and warranty and they backed off.
    PS. With your average mileage the service will be due at c. 21 months old (20k).

    Yes take it in and get them to check the service interval is set correctly it's probably just been set incorrectly at the factory/not changed at pdi to UK settings ie two year interval.

    My Macan 2.0 is only 7 months old and I have completed 7500 miles, yet last week I also had the "Oil Change Due" message pop up.
    I contacted my supplying OPC who told me that it was PDI'd in May last year as a showroom car even though I had actually bought and registered it in mid November. The Oil change is therefore out of sync with the actual time and they have agreed to re-program it for me to the correct dates.
    However, upon checking the Handbook I gather that Macan 2.0 models do need an annual Oil change in addition to the interim service, something that I hadn't been aware of until now.
    Just for info, they quoted me £300 for Oil & Filter change.
