Next Service on a 997 GTS

The service schedule on a March 2011 GTS has been performed as below with the next service due in Jan 19. Could anyone please tell me which service it will be and likely cost? The car is at 29,000 so is there anything pricey looming around that time and mileage? I would guess the mileage will increase by 6k by then. Thanks in advance.
 
08/03/2013 at 6136 miles - Minor service with brake fluid change
10/03/2015 at 18811 miles - Major service with brake fluid change
13/01/2017 at 25517 miles - Major service with brake fluid change.
Next service due 13/01/2019 or at 45517 miles which ever comes first.

    Sounds like a car that has been very well cared for and in fact over serviced. The next service due in  Jan 19 will be a minor and brake fluid change. The PDK fluid change will have been done at 6 years (assuming it is a PDK car)  so there is nothing much else that is likely have any significant cost implications.
     
    The cost with a Porsche main dealer for a minor service with brake fluid will be £500 but you should get some PCGB discount to reduce that down to around £450.

    Odd, that it had two "majors" in a row?  8 year is normally a major too.  Spark plugs due in that but not a big deal in non turbo!  Did it have the aux belt changed last service?

    Do you have TPMS?  If so the batteries might be low in which case the transmitters have to be replaced - not cheap...  Around 40k miles you might be looking at brake discs (assuming iron not pccb)  Do you have extended warranty, btw?

    Hi 
    had my minor at 48000 on 2011 GTS could dig out receipts but approx cost at OPC 
     
    minor service £500
    additional items recommended at that mileage £500 ( bit naughty that as they should flag in advance as these were common items to all cars at that mileage and they did not mention until I arrived on day ) 
    2 years warranty £1800( 111 point inspection FOC after some negotiation) 
    new front discs and pads plus sensors etc ( discounted after negotiating against quote from my local independent )£1000
    left dealer £4 k poorer but very happy with service overall - they also replaced a suspension arm and the petrol cap FOC under warranty after inspecting

    Tony,
     
    I remember the front disc changes on my old GTS, I got through 3 sets in one year (tracking heavy car with small brakes) at £854 a time. The amount is burnt into my memory as was the £250 included in that amount for replacing the centre lock drive pins on each disc change.
     
    Regards,

    Thanks. It's on new discs and pads, the aux rad Has been done, extended warranty until Jan next year and around 6mm on the tyres. Things like exhaust brackets and a couple of small seals have been done so it's hopefully as sorted as it can be! 
    Not sure about the TPMS but I will ask the question. 
    Really useful input many thanks guys. Will hopefully reveal and post pics after next Saturday.

    yes i remember when you changed the discs when we drove at Goodwood - you had just driven at Spa- it goes to show how comparisons between cars and servicing are so complex you had 3 sets of discs and I've changed the first set of pads and front discs at 48000 after half a dozen track days - saying that I'm sure your lap times are rather quicker than mine !!
    best Tony

    Or perhaps it was because you were carrying all the extra weight of a cabriolet over a coupe

    Well that did include 2 years warranty.
     
    Mine is in at present for an 8 year service (spark plugs on turbo an extra £600 labour!), extended warranty and Porsche Assist.  I have asked them to change the transmission oil too as I think 12 years is too long.  At least the 111 point check is foc. 
    Deep breaths (and pockets) required before I collect on Monday!

    Hey Alan. Look out for my Total 911 article next month in issue 164. I changed my PDk oil at 8 years and 37k miles and had it analysed. Let's just say 12 years is too long. As is 8 years. 😉

    The reason I'm having it changed is because I read your comments on the forum.....
