I have an 08 CS and just got my first service light at 15000 mi--I did an oil change at 7500 after break in but what is entailed in this service?? Cost, etc thanks for the reply
**** I don't know where you live but $450 seems to be "over the top" for a first servce. $150 for the oil change may be about right but the balance is a "rip" since it's just ckecks.not sure what is involved (whole lot of checks besides oil change) but it costs $450. I think the oil change is $150 and the rest of the cost is the checks. I have 7,500 miles but I did ask what to expect. Seems steep. Not sure what prices everyone else was quoted
Think of it as you funding the expedition to find things wrong with your car. Personally, if the car is under warranty, then I think it is money well spent since you want any issues to be found and repaired under warranty.
I also have an '08 CS. I changed my own oil/filter at 2K & 6K. The owners manual tells you what's involved in a 12K initial service. Your dealer will tell you what they will charge for this. My dealer told me $700, so I changed my own oil/filter & particle filter, then took it to a well-recommended local independent Porsche-specialty shop to have the checks done for $150. The dealer vs independent vs self maintenance decision ultimately boils down to cost and risk-tolerance.
