Ive just sent my 996 GT3 mk2 in for a major service and a serpentine belt change. It cost me just over $2k OUCH!!! In NSW btw

Has anyone done a service with Porsche and think their stamp is worth more then someone who is a porsche specialist Ie PR Technology?

compared to a Ferrari, that is cheap, especially when they have no idea on how to fix most things
Meeting women on the Internet? Remember, the more similarities u “magically” have, & the more she agrees with u, the fucking crazier she is.

I wouldn't say it's worth it for 996 GT3. I'd take it to the local Porsche specialist and pocket the cash.

If you supply your own parts it will probably cost you about $600.  That's what my 997 cost when I did it that way.  I saved myself a fortune.  Buy the Mobil oil from http://www.ebay.com.au/usr/gllubricantsptyltd and the parts from www.sonnenporscheoemparts.com

It is the cheapest way to own a car and you still get dealer stamps.

Let me tell you the problem with supplying your own parts.....if there's a problem with the parts, who wears it? The mechanic will charge for EVERYTHING, and rightly so....but if he supplies the part, he only charges once.
