Hey fellow Macan lovers, wanted to see if you could provide me with some input, i searched the forum but nothing recent came up on this top, so i am due for the 15 k oil change, and i am hearing many mixed reviews, as in take it to Porsche and pay an inflated price, or go to a certified Porsche shop and get it much cheaper, any experience, any suggestions, would be greatly appreciated in advance :) :x

First I would check with your dealership if you have a free service or not.

From what I have previously read; call around to several Porsche dealerships in your area (if your lucky to have more than 1) for pricing. I would use various pricing differences if you schedule an appointment with your dealership. I am more inclined to have my first service done by the dealer than a 3rd party as they will check and perform any system updates needed, etc. I would also reach out to ether your SA or people in this forum for recommendations for a good independent in your area. I am over 1 hr away from my dealer and my SA has suggested 2 indie's to use that have excellent knowledge of Macans. I plan to use an indie shop for general work (brakes, etc). Note that indie shops will probably not provide a loaner car so either you have to plan ride or rental...

Not sure, but Pfaff to me always seemed a little more expensive for everything. I don't remember paying that much for my 911 when serviced at Downtown or Oakville Porsche. For my Macan, I got the 3 service package (ripoff), so don't know what the 'new' price will be.

Personally, I like bringing my cars back to Porsche for servicing so Porsche has full records in case someone cares when I sell. However, I've used Mantis for aftermarket 'stuff'.

i spoke to north york the other day and they said it was 495, as well as downtown and oakville are too far,

they booked me in for thurs

if i find a better option before then i will cancel if not then not,

im sure there has to be experienced techs who service Porsches for oil and filter changes for half the cost,

i agree when it comes to something specific its always best to go to the dealer, but for something as common and standard as this,,,

Mine is in for 15k service tomorrow DT, price is $489.

Also getting my winters put on since I'm already there, that's another $250.

Yeah I could be doing alot of other things for 850$, like buying Xmas presents....sorry kids!

edit: Price will vary base/S+GTS/Turbo according to how much oil is needed

If in Toronto area go to Sportscar Boutique (.com). Ilker runs a fantastic Porsche shop. He races Porsches on the official circuit and his wife also owns a Macan GTS which I'm sure his shop services themselves. So they are familiar with the vehicle. Save yourself a couple of hundred bucks + tax on an oil change.

If it’s not free (it is on 2018’s) then reputable and certified indie all the way. Unless you like spending $400+ on something someone else can do exactly as well for $200.

Only time I go to the dealer for servicing is when they provide aggressive coupons.

I'm with @K-A : find thyself a good indie. Ask around or come over this way (road trip!) & visit my guy. As an aside, it's going in to him this week to have lowering springs installed. Can't wait!
