DIY on 991 GT3?
 
Have any new owners done any investigation of their GT3s to see what is entailed in oil/filter changes, trans oil changes, etc?
Please don't tell me make an app't...
TIA

I haven't yet, but I will be doing all my own simple maintenance items like these. I don't expect anything odd, other than new locations on the new motor.

One of the first things I'll do when I get it home is get it up on my lift and really check it out.

The oil filter has been moved to the oil pan from it's top mounted location on other 9A1 engines. The engine undertray/diffuser will have to be removed but from the pics I've seen that looks very straightforward. I suspect the oil pan and oil tank will have a separate drain plugs. I can't see an oil change being difficult and as always I'll do my own.

thx guys, sounds very doable! I will await your reports.
and congrats on your cars!

I remember seeing a crazy picture where the dealer was removing the rear bumper for an air filter change on a 991?.. Is that correct?

That's correct for the 991. Doubt it's been changed for the GT3 although they did change the oil filter location. I've heard it's not as bad as it looks but still obviously a hassle. Good news is that filters are a 40K mile item so you probably won't need to change them too frequently.....

after 3000 miles, you buy 991RS, there is no need to ever change oil in GT3. i thought we discussed that at length last email :D

Welcome to the world of Ferrari. At least you don't remove the engine.

You do not have to take the bumper off of the 991 GT3 to change the airfilter. This was confirmed by my Tech who took my airfilter box out to show me parts of the engine when I requested a half day of visual inspection of the systems in the car. Proof attached.

Also I believe he told me the oil filter is now much easier to change than before.

Lastly here is the only DIY I will do on my GT3 (I hope). Approx 400ml of oil in first 3000km. Its less than the manual suggested so Im happy....

It would be cool if someone shot an in depth video of the easy way to do the oil change and post it here or on youtube for fellow enthusiasts. Any takers?

I did one (with still pics) for the 958 Cayenne V8 a while back. Would be glad to do it again when I perform the post break-in change on the GT3. It will be a while, though, since I don't have the car yet (January) and someone will probably beat me to the punch. ;)
