Dealer quoted $470 for oil change & other stuff, $230 for brake fluid flush. Sound reasonable?
I just took my 2006 Boxster S in for its four-year maintenance. But before taking it in, I did several of the required maintenance items myself, namely, (i) I purchased an activated charcoal pollen filter for $20.50 and installed it myself using an article posted on this forum, (ii) I replaced the stock air filter with the EVOMS V-flow last summer, again with the help of an article on the forum, and (iii) I purchased eight quarts of Mobil-1 0W-40 ($40), an OEM oil filter ($10.44), and six OEM plugs ($40.38).Actually this is what he wrote:
I guess your are due for the four year maintenance. I would recommend the 20,000 mile service, which includes and oil, oil filter and pollen filter with a major safety check and fault data check. (est. $475.00)
I would also recommend a brake fluid flush est cost $225.00.
I've done some search on the site and looks like the lowest cost quoted by a Porsche mechanic was around $250 for the oil, oil/pollen filter change.
Was this Momentum in Houston? I work near West Houston Porsche and was thinking of taking mine there.Momentum just did our 2yr. maintenance and it was 195 for the oil and 90 for the brake flush. I used my PCA for a 10% dicount on both my CS and my wifes Boxster. Sounds like you are getting hosed dude. We have 1 more yr fact. warranty but even on the exstended I commited to them since we can extend the warranties up to 8yrs. total.
Some I do myself but you gotta throw them a bone every once in a while. Go on line and see if they are running any specials and print out the coupon helps a little. You might even try another dealership they are differant you want to think the best but reality strikes. Oil/Brake fluid on both got out the door for under 300 I don't know what pricing book they are looking at and Porsche has one. Good luck!
Picked up my 06 CS today. Had the "major" 60K service (actually have 55K) and tech inspection. Included: oil change, air filter, cabin filter, plugs, serp. belt, power steering fluid, gear oil, coolant change, brake bleed, wiper blades and washer fluid. Cost was $1,095. I also had him install the Mantis underdrive pulley and replace the water pump.Dealer quoted $470 for oil change & other stuff, $230 for brake fluid flush. Sound reasonable?
