Am sure this has been posted here before but I can't find it here or online. Can anyone direct me to Porsche GB's standard service charges. Have been quoted just over £1k for my GTS' 24 month service so just want to double check everything. Thanks everyone

I can't point to any specific posts but I have the strong recollection that fixed price menu servicing that once existed (before I bought the Macan) bit the dust years ago. That has been reinforced by the conversations I had with different dealers when I was due for a 24 month service in 2021.

Neil's right, fixed price servicing was withdrawn. Now, the OPCs charge whatever they think they can get away with. I always get quotes from 2 or 3 OPCs, then ask them to discount. One tip: OPCs owned by Porsche Retail Group refuse to discount.

Thanks everyone. My OPC is Porsche Retail Group and like many others they're fiercely booked up so can't imagine many people discounting but I can sort something better elsewhere I will.

Steve - do you have the list of what they carried out easy to hand? West London are quoting for the service plus c.£200 for a recommended brake fluid change which is making me think the latter isn't required, however I'm not an expert. No worries if you don't. Cheers

I have three versions of this. It was withdrawn as London garages charge much higher labour rates so complained

I have a membership card with my local dealer (I paid I think £60 of £80 for it) but it gives me cheap MOTs (£27) and 10% off quoted strive and labour costs. Lasts 4 years, can be extended for free for another 4 and covers multiple cars owned by me

@Maldevic - very interesting bit of info, albeit it does state prices valid only until 31.12.19.

I see the brake fluid change mentioned and to be changed ‘as appropriate’. The way I read the pricing, the brake fluid change is included in the service cost and charged at £120 only if brake fluid change is completed at another time.

Those prices actually look quite reasonable even adjusted for the high level of inflation in the past few years. But if official owned OPCs are quoting north of £1,000 for 2 years service, I’ll be checking a few other OPCs before booking a service.

Yes the brake fluid was changed and is required every 2 years.

Here's the invoice....

The quoted fixed price serving menu issue was raised at a PCGB Regional 17 Southern Q and A session with Portsmouth OPC Principal in Autumn 2022. He said the national fixed price list went as unsustainable as the mechanics at different OPC's were paid different hourly rates dependent on local labour markets with London being highest, followed by Southeast with elsewhere being lower
