Mine goes in for service this week and been quoted £626.01 for the service and £138.62 for brake fluid. Sounds toppy to me?

It depends, is that the 4yr service? It's £630 for that for my GTS and £495 for a minor. I'd expect a GT4 to cost more, but maybe not that much more.

Not a GT4 I know, but my GTS was done earlier this year under fixed price servicing at my supplying OPC and brake fluid was £95. As a comparison, it's going to cost £35 at Mountune for my wife's Focus RS next month as an addition to her second service.

I'm guessing you've been quoted for a minor so it seems a little steep for both the service and the brake fluid.

Seem to remember it being around £580 + brake fluid when mine went in late October.
Thought it was a bit much… but seeing it as relationship reaffirming with my local OPC for whatever that is worth.
So I just checked - mine was £580 + VAT for service and Brake Fluid.

Mine was £650 incl VAT for first service at 2 years and the brake fluid change. Is the service bit on yours the 2 year or 3 year one? Presumably a slightly late 2 year one?

Note that the fixed price servicing varies if the dealership are part of Porsche UK vs.The Porsche Retail group (Reading, Guildford etc)

no fixed price is fixed, no discounts
I must have been lucky; got 10% off fixed price for PCGB Membership, was a Spyder not a GT4

From what i understood, all 981 models are same service price, fixed (as per that menu image someone posted)

Had our 981 Boxster done, Major service £1000 (with discount) (so 4 years - its usually 20K miles or 2 years whichever soonest)

This comprised of:

Basic Major service as per menu: £630
Spark Plugs - needs rear wheels off to change them - so they add more labour frown
Drive Belt check/change
Chassis Mount checks
Brake Fluid £95

From memory it came to around £1198 and i haggled the £198 as discount, worth asking whats to lose?

Should be no added costs just because the car is a GT4 - unless it uses different spark plugs, maybe that could add further costs, but the fixed element to the service should be exactly the same.

I Used Porsche Centre Sheffield (think its part of JCT group)

I don't think the GT4 falls under the fixed price servicing deal. GT cars are likely to have increased costs, regardless of logic smile

Well i would challenge that with OPC, i' might ask them next time i'm in there our of curiosity. Its not like its a V10 screamer is it, its a 3.8 911 engine when all said and done.

Seems most of these dealers do, my M3 goes to stratstone, and they now use bmw branded oil (shell) i supply my own Castrol Edge 10w60, they wanted £26 per L, and i paid £68 for 8L!

Didn't do that with the Boxster as it was under warranty and is until Feb 2019 so we stuck to the plan and OPC supplied parts, that said next service its going to RPM in harrogate who are 50% cheaper than OPC.

Servicing is same fixed price as 981S/GTS , you don't have to be a PCGB member to get 10% off just ask ! Can't remember exact figure but I paid circa £550 for first service and brake fluid change.
When you think a car like a New Ford Fiesta is going to be £189 year 1 and £249 year 2 at a ford stealers it's not that bad a cost!

Porsche Retail Group do not partake in the fixed price agreement for some reason, my RS was 5 to 600 less at a centre that does partake, Retail Group = RIP OFF Group, be warned

Here's the official response !

The website listed below is from the Porsche UK website, as a Porsche Centre and part of the Porsche Retail Group, we have created our own Fixed Priced Servicing programme. This programme provides the same level of pricing across the whole Porsche model range. We believe this programme demonstrates a fair and competitive proposition for our customers and across the Retail Group.

We firmly believe this proposition provides a balanced service pricing structure and is not a reflection upon any specific Porsche models, but the level of service and skill we deliver to our customers.

All my local dealerships are part of the PRG
