    Re: OPC servicing costs

    Why is 996 so much cheaper to service than 997?

    That price doesn't include brake fluid change (every service) or spark plugs that are part of the four year service. Total cost on our 997/2 was £1,195 - and that was £300 cheaper than the most expensive quote I received!

    £1200, that's for a Major service obviously.. It's such a rip off and with current selling units down it will not get any cheaper. I wonder what Porsche dealer will be first to offer discount incentives, its has to come one day.

    Re: OPC servicing costs

    Actually throt I don't think the servicing costs are too excessive bearing in mind the basic service is only every two years or 20k miles (around £600) and the major one is every four years or 40k miles.  My humble Clockwork Rat maintenance costs around £900 over 40k miles.....(minor service every 10k miles and major every 20k miles and the major + service at 40k miles).

    I have never paid list prices for servicing


    Re: OPC servicing costs

    Me neither? On the last invoice it stated 15% "staff" discount!

    it's not unusual for OPCs to match or beat indie service pricing

    DC - even adding in brake fluid, the above quote for a 4 year service, including VAT, comes to £760.

    What else did you have done, apart from changing spark plugs, to justify the extra £435 you paid..?  Smiley

    Drain and re gas aircon, Check airbag, change brake fluid, replace tyre sealant. Actual invoice was £1,063.26 - the figure above was from memory at work!

    it's a bit sneaky to say the least of Porsche to exclude items such as the spark plug change from their menu pricing when it is a required part of the four year service.

    As I mentioned earlier I got quotes from three dealerships, Swindon where we purchased the car wanted £1,450, Mid Sussex £1,350 and Bournemouth £1,063. Mid Sussex phoned me the next day and when I told them I'd gone elsewhere they offered to match Bournemouth's price - even though they assured me at the time they quoted me the original figure that that was their best price!

    Re: OPC servicing costs

    You seem surprised smiley My experience is that some OPC seem to believe they live in a monopoly market where they can freely set prices. I had similar experiences here with unexplained price differences.

    What is the hourly rate for labour in the UK or in CH? Parts are more or less the same price everywhere, I think.

    The hourly rate at my Porsche Service Center in eastern Switzerland is Fr.172.- (about €142.-) 


    Re: OPC servicing costs

    I heard BMW are running at around £95 an hour.

    Little wonder private specialist workshops thrive once warranties expire.
