The servicing on a macan is, i believe, every 2 years or 20,000 miles. I don’t believe its based on your driving style as it is with something like a BMW.

From other posts here it seems a minor service is around £500-700 and a major is around £1500-2000
Porsche engined ones were like this

The Audi engines ones are condition based

Ah, poop. Didn’t think about that. Bit more expenditure I hadn’t counted on. Mind you we won’t be able to drive them anyway. Now Boris has said people don’t need to panic buy petrol people are, not unsurprisingly, panic buying petrol. Glad I filled-up yesterday before all this kicked-off

Pretty close, a minor service plus brake fluid change last week at Swindon OPC was £711 (MY17 but an SD)

^^^ Oil change intervals are determined by mileage and nature of use. Mine came up after 15,500 miles and 17 months (£413) but others have been shocked to see it required after two locked down years and only 2,500 miles. When my two year service was due Hull OPC refused to do it without changing the oil (again) and, if I remember correctly Sheffield quoted £650 in oil change, which I didn't have done.

Couple of quick questions folks, why do most people upgrade to the 75litre tank, is the standard one to small and restricts range?
Secondly, I assume folding wing mirrors are an extra, where do I find this option and how much are they? Thanks in advance.

folding mirrors are standard ( I know, amazing right ?! )

75l tank is only about £85 so arguably worth having as it means slightly fewer trips to the petrol station, but requires a slightly bigger mortgage to fill up. If you don’t do many miles/longer journeys its probably not worth it, although anything that avoids trips to a petrol station is a good idea just at the moment.

Because we are all physic and foresee how useful the extra range is in a fuel crisis :lol: :lol: ;) ;)
Folding mirrors are standard, dipping mirrors are an option.

Surely that can’t be right,something useful that’s standard! 😲 wow.
Thanks for the info on this and the tank,think I’ll stick with a normal tank as won’t be doing that many miles and few longer journeys now that I’m retiring. :D
I’m back at my local OPC next Wednesday for a test drive and will more than likely put an order in for a new S. Just got to decide on spec now. :x
