Well there's a catch (depending on your self control) :D "Whilst this is taking place, you will have the opportunity to drive 'back to back' two of the current Porsche models from our demonstrator fleet*. One would be a sports car, the other one of our SUV or Panamera models. Whilst you are out on your drive we will also wash and vacuum your Porsche (including cleaning the windows)."

I hope my OPC are doing a similar offer. A nice way to spend a Saturday morning!

I have had to book mine in for an oil service after only 16 months and 11k miles at an eye watering £430

The car has flashed up that it needs this oil service and the dealer confirmed. Anyone else had this in advance of the 20k or 2 year service. Seems a bit daft as it will be 2 years old in October and will require a full service then as well

I’ve just had the same oil change on my 2017 Macan, also, 11k mileage, but total cost £310!
Upside they found leak in Ad Blue, so fixed and topped up, and also leak near gearbox, which they put a trace on and it’s due back in now to locate the leak. Never a cheap visit there though 🙄

Fwiw, I voluntarily had the oil changed after 10k miles, just before a long road trip. I believe, rightly or wrongly that it’s the only thing protecting your engine (and a considerate right foot when cold. I paid over £300 for the service. Had a lovely cuppa, a chat with the sales manager and a good look around. I’ll be doing another trip later this year just after the 2 year anniversary. Timing is everything....
