I am in my second + year with my 2007 boxster. I was told by the dealer originally to change the oil after a year or 20k miles - this seems consistent with all the reading I have done. I have only driven 7k miles each year. Dealer advised a one year service including oil change for $435. However there is no "one year service" listed anywhere. Then they told me I do not yet need the 2 year service since I have only 14k miles and do not track it even though the car is 27 mos old. Drives me crazy trying to figure out what should be done when.

What do you people pay for oil changes from a dealer?

My local Porsche-Audi dealer charges $195. and I'm not sure

what they actually do, if anything, beyond oil/filter. My wife's Lexus

dealer checks brakes, tire wear and all fluid levels for less

than half the price of Porsche. They both wash the cars.

I doMy own. The eight plus quarts runs

you over $50.00 for oil. I buy the filter

from sunset for $15 plus or minus. I wash my

car for $4.00.

With labor at $100 per hour, there does not

look like there is much profit. I would say

that $200 at the dealer is a good price.
