    Pounds99 annual check up??

    Just got a letter from my service department reminding me that my car is nearly a year old and asking me to bring it in for its annual check.

    At the very reasonable cost of Pounds99.

    Now the 987 requires servicing every two years or 20K miles, and so does not require and annual service.

    Is this dealer bullsh1t, or is it worth it? WHat do they actually do for Pounds99? Have any of you had this done??

    Cheers for the info,

    JZ

    They got it wrong with you too then - i had a reminder card from Reading, saying my car was due a service - after 11 months!

    Soem OPCs send these out on the off chance you might be nearing 20k miles and the first service.

    You could always follow it up, but sounds like the low mileage annula service offered on the 986 models, where they did nothing bar look at the car - not even and oil change

    Sounds like a con to me - didn't get this when my 987 was one year old.

    Re: Pounds99 annual check up??

    When my 987 was nearly 12 months old with only 6K miles, I asked my OPC if a service/oil change was necessary. They gave a categorical no! As we were due to go on a tour in France I asked them to carry out any 'recalls' and check everything out. They provided a written 'health check' for FREE!

    I did exactly the same - they wouldn't even give me a price for an oil change . So i did it myself
