Was wondering how a PDK gearbox service costs £1200!!
Surely the box is a sealed unit so it's only oil and filters that are done?


The minor service due at 6 years along with brake fluid, PDK clutch fluid, belts, AWD fluid and air filter is indeed in excess of £1300 from OPC

Just come back from looking at the Gen 2 front end had been painted as had n/s door not too well and that's put me off at the price.

The Gen 1 is a distance away from me but the ceramic brakes are a worry.

My max budget is around £65k and really wanted peace of mind with OPC warranty and worried about buying elsewhere.


Shame as a gen 2 with around 30k to 35k miles would be at least £80k at an OPC. Even buying privately you are not going to get a decent gen 2 with less than 40k miles for less than £75k

Even 3 years ago at the bottom of the depreciation curve you would have struggled to find a decent gen 2 for £65k

I think the price must reflect the poor paint on it as they were not interested in getting it sorted. Salesman said nearest Porsche Approved bodyshop was too far away and sales jobs I guess from this one get done by some Fred in a shed.

OP, if you are prepared to buy privately and move quickly you might get lucky.

This one for instance...www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201709309837699 was up privately a few months ago for mid 60s. Looked a good buy at that price point but sold within 48hrs.

Best of luck with your hunt.

Private sale market feeds the dealers high price offerings so don't be scared to go down this route with a PPI after getting a speedy [refundable] depoisit in the vendors account.

This looks a good buy if you fancy a cab, sounds like it’s advertised as a GEN 1.5 or it’s had the pcm updated.

I've had a look at 997T prices on the back of this thread and I was quite shocked - there is not a massive difference between 991 Turbo and 997 Turbo prices out there.

At the moment my hope of moving up from a 996T to a 997T is going nowhere! I can see me 'downsizing' to Boxter or Cayman....
