Hi all

First post, be gentle etc. Great forum btw.

I’ve recently acquired a 997.2 c2s with 46k on the clock and fPsh. It’s due it’s 10 year service in the summer so was wondering what this actually entails if I need to ring around a few OPCs.

I appreciate the Indy vs OPC arguments but would like to keep the OPC history up if I can afford it!?!

Thanks in advance

Oly

Welcome to 911uk

If your car has a full history it should only be due for a minor service but will also need a brake fluid change.

If you're in the PCGB you'll get discount at an OPC. If not you may also get something off just for asking. £400 all in including vat should be about it.

All OPCs have menu pricing so would give you a firm price up front but these prices do vary. It's worth ringing your nearest two.

Good Luck Thumb

Wecome to the forum Oly
I am sure other more knowledgeable members with correct me if l have missed something.
I have just had my 997.2 C2S serviced by OPC Mid Sussex. My car is an late October 58 plate with 75K on the clock. It has a full OPC history which l also wanted to continue. They told me that my car was not due for it's next service yet as they recommend every 20K miles between services. Ignoring that l asked them to do a major service any way. It cost £505. They list what is done on their web site so l would check that. Incidentally just checking my service book and my drive belt was changed at 47K also the spark plugs were changed at 53K and 67K. That seems a bit odd so l will check with my OPC to see why.

Congrats. I'm also in the same boat as having one of the first Gen 2 cars. I can not believe that my car will be 10 years old Surprised
Get the pics up! Thumb

Picked up the fixed price servicing booklet at OPC at the weekend.
I’m out of sync with my servicing at 9 years and 57k miles.

Isn't there an airbag check after a decade?

They do a visual check three times (4, 8 and 10 years) up to 10 years but I thought there was a system check after a decade. Unsure how a visual check tells them anything, they don't remove the panels, seats or steering wheel to check?

They do a system check before that. £60 seems a fair bit to pull a fuse though.

The last one was a year 8 major, but they were certainly mentioning it over three years ago.

Guys

Thank you for welcomes and taking the time to reply. It looks like I've dropped on with only a minor and brake fluid.

Sorry but I don't have a clue how to post pictures, I can't even figure out service intervals.......

If it helps, the car is basalt black, manual and brilliant!!!

Cheers

Oly

Airbag check is pull a fuse and check the light / message then check the fault code and clear it .

Different models do have different checks with Cayenne being a visual check .

Not going to argue about time , we do it as part of a major service .. so FOC basically .


Personnely i dont have a problem with OPC and i think everyone should use what ever garage they are comfortable with .. 10 years with OPC and i hope i was pretty fair and honest .

But .. my attitudes to garages have changed since being on here and i now realise there are good and bad garages .. im afraid i only know a few in my area that are either one that i can advise on so not of a great help there im sorry to say .
