MotorheadProbably about right Ed. I think Porsche dealer labour charges are now approaching £200/hr. 😲 You could ask if they’ll allow you provide your own oil … if you can find a cheaper supply. I assume your Macan is under the factory warranty so although you’re within your rights to have the service performed by a non-franchise garage I wouldn’t want the hassle of trying to sort out a subsequent warranty claim. Your choice of course. Jeff
ChappelleNo par for the course I'm afraid. Porsche used to advertise service costs under the banner 'Total Transparency' but for whatever reason they withdrew it a few years back. I saw three variants. One attached
AndrewCSThat price for oil has to be incorrect at > £40 per litre ... have you queried it ? Labour up here is £160 + VAT per hour RPM Technik are Porsche approved service providers, JZM also pp a recent post on the Forum
CristoMost if not all OPC’s are an absolute rip off! They charge what they do because customers seem to pay it. As previously mentioned in a post, the available price for 5litres Mobil 1 0-40W is £39.99 from Arnold Clark .
CristoAs previously mentioned, Porsche are an absolute rip off!!! It certainly doesn’t take 3 hours to change an oil and filter.I have to continually ask myself why people put up with it? Maybe it’s a touch of the emperor’s clothes 🤔🤣
Geoff_FieldsMy local PC used to (over 4 years ago) accept self supplied oil provided it was in sealed original containers.
HelenGoffYou can used “porsche approved“ independent garages for servicing. Or repairs. They are usually a bit cheaper. But for me they are quite often a long drive away.
ed987sHelenGoffYou can used “porsche approved“ independent garages for servicing. Or repairs. They are usually a bit cheaper. But for me they are quite often a long drive away. Correct Helen, you can, and quite within your rights..However, were anything to arise under the warranty period, relating to an oil or engine issue, there is the potential it could void the warranty. It certainly wouldn’t be cut and dry..and no doubt have to jump through hoops to prove otherwise..!
