MrDemonThe 12 year is a big one. Why pay an OPC though I have no idea. The last one you had should have been a 10 year and that's the smallest one you can get. Only a oil swap at 10 years.
ScottishSpyderI live in Edinburgh and had the 12 year service on my 2010 987 gen2 done last summer by David Phillips for £850 inc vat. OPC quoted £1600 and came back to £1350. David did the full job inc gearbox oil change. The car was full OPC before then. Also he is pretty central so easy to get to. As my car is 12 years old I felt full OPC history was not essential and in reality David Phillips is probably more familiar with 987's than the OPC.
ScottishSpyderI think if I had a PDK i would stay OPC and renew the warranty . Try Perth. They seem to be trying- in the right way.
PorschednaI was of the opinion previously that I was prepared to pay the OPC price if I received a quality service, however as this seemed unlikely based on past experiences I now go to an independent and on my last major service to include belt and plugs paid £580.00 Inc VAT what I enjoyed about this was I was there when it was being done so learned a lot in the process At an OPC you don’t see anything apart from an invoice when they want paid which you have to take their word for In my opinion OPCs do not life up to the Porsche high level standards we would hope to expect from them, it’s all about the money!
Eric GOk, I've got my car back from having it's 12 year and if people are willing I'd like a grass roots opinion on the oil level guage and the segments. In my own experience I've always topped up trying to keep the oil in the top segment without going over the top guide line. I've recently read or heard that this is wrong, and about halfway should be the approach to take. What I'd really like to know though is what guys you would think about getting your car back with the oil below the bottom segment with the bottom segment flashing? And needing to add .5 litres to move it up to the bottom "safe" segment. Followed by another .3 litres approx to take it up another segment. Please let me know if I should put this question in a different thread. I'm new the the club and you guys are the first members I've communicated with. I'd be really grateful for your opinions.Many thanks.
