    Oil Change

     

    Hi,

    I have a 2006 997 and its due for an oil change. The last time I got one I made the mistake of going to the dealer and it cost me $300.00. What should I expect to pay from a local guy? I don't want to take it just anywhere but $300.00 is nuts.


    Re: Oil Change

     Is local guy an indy P-car mechanic? If yes, OK.

    The $300 dealer oil change is steep, but a high priced dealer oil change buys you goodwill should something be wrong w/ your car even past warranty.

    Thanks. I have a local porsche specilist that wants $200.00 I may just go for that.


    Re: Oil Change

    Local Porsche specialist - sounds like an indy. An indy should charge less, as it does not fulfill the goodwill bank I referred to. Many genuine Porsche dealers are charging less than $200 for oil changes these days. Goodwill is banked working with the same dealer on a routine basis (assuming of course that the dealer is good and cares for its loyal customers).

    I just went to one. He is getting back to me but he specializes in these type of cars and he said it should be around $100.00 If that is the case he may be my guy.
