The first service will (should) have been a minor, two years after that a major, alternating every two years.

You went for it then. Thumb

As a new owner I'd go for a major as a matter of course but otherwise I'd follow on from whatever the service book says it's had previously. Over time many get out of kilter from the prescribed minor/major/minor especially when annual mileage is low - as with your car.

They check some extra stuff....

Pretty sure spark plugs aren't automatic on a major - that is mileage dependent.
Minor is basically oils and filters (oil and air) plus some checks,
Major is more extensive checks...
Unless someone can correct me??

Congrats btw! thumbsup

They will probably flag this up but it's worth asking or finding out when the belts were last changed/checked.

Ring an OPC that offers fixed price servicing. Get it from the horses mouth. Brake fluid is priced separately, as is serpentine belt and for major service on a Turbo, spark plugs are priced separately.

should be in the handbook

minor after 2 years on 997 then major 2 years after that.

I am not comfortable with oil being in two years so drop mine every year regardless of what model it is.

I think spark plugs are every 60k miles or age dependant

coil packs would be 80k miles but it depends on age and if they go as they have a habit of just letting go with no warning.

Please, get the oil changed every year, not every 2!

Took mine in for a service....
Had the oil and filter done after 12 months of ownership..knew this one was a major but all the stars seem to have aligned with this one...





Tyres will be ordered soon.
Coil packs on next service.
Happy man 👍
