Just booked a service (minor) at the Porsche Centre Nottingham and they talked me into having the air con serviced at the same time...they quoted me £650....i told them that i thought that was steep and they came back with a quote of £550. i also asked if i would be supplied with a car for the day...and they have said yes....i think this is a result...what do you think?
 
Surely they don't just mean a pollen filter and regas for £550? That's nuts!
 
I automatically assumed that what Huntert meant was a minor service plus the air con works for £550-00.
Is this not the case?

My indie charges £230-00 for the minor service but I don't know how much for the regas and pollen filter etc.
 
iirc a minor service at an OPC for a 987 is £480 so £550 for a minor + aircon regas is a good deal.

The £170 they attempted to add originally was a typical OPC price and frankly was taking the pi$$.
 
Notts Porsche centre....great job

Well had the work done today, Minor service,Drive belt Replacement, air con service, £640 in total...free health check...now my car is a 55 reg with 70k on it..its had 8 services.....the health check revealed the following issues....Non OEM battery, Tyres down to 4.5 mm, One wiper blade leaves a bit of a smear and a piece of one of one of my wheel arch liner is missing....So i declined the offer of new tyres, battery and wiper blade to be fitted and asked them to order the wheel arch liner part i require. So all in all I'm a very happy Boy, car is in Fabulous condition (even to Porsche standards) and i got to use a brand new Cayman S all day....what a machine they are!!!! Much faster and a sound that is intoxicating...........
Another point that i liked was the service that the sales rep (laura) gave me...was chatty cheerful and kept me informed via phone all day

oh and when i got back to my car...A litre of Mobil One and a gearbox oil top up sitting on my passenger seat for me....

I had my aircon regassed last week.£45.
 
That 640 don't sound too bad for all that was done.
Theres always a cheaper deal to be had whatever you are buying but a car for the day and the peace of mind that youve been given with the health check makes me feel you didnt do too badly at all.
I never begrudge paying if I feel that I've been well looked after

Check your invoice. I'd be surprised if they haven't charged you for them.
