Got my first service today. It was the 5 year service and it was $1,800. I don't know how that compares to service costs on other comparable cars but given it's only required once a year wasn't too bad. No replacement parts required other than a new tyre bottle and the expected consumables.

Can you detail what they did off your invoice?  Given that it didn't require any parts that is expensive IMHO.  Porsche charge $180 per hour.

$1100 labour. Page long list of checked this, checked that, topped up this, lubricated that. I'd have no idea if that long list is 6-7 hours work.

Good for you. I wasn't trying to claim that this was cheap (or expensive); just thought the OP might be interested. It all feels cheap to me compared to the bills for a race car...

Job cost is mostly cheaper on race car, of course it's km interval that's the killer....
