Your plugs look good from the photos, a bit of carbon buildup on the electrode on a couple, but wear looks minimal.
pretty much same situation for me, garage kept, not driven in winter - wondering if necessary to change plugs with such low mileage

my car is almost 4 years old and have 10K miles; still planning on getting plugs done.

planning on keeping car for a very, very long time so it's in my best interest (paranoia)

Doing the belt change at 4 yrs/40K miles makes sense to me since the bumper cover has to be removed anyway.

Can old plugs cause any malfunction in other parts? Don't think so, but would like experts to say.


Other than that, I would only do them at 4 years and 30k miles IF THE CPO WERE AT RISK for not doing it. Is that a possibility?

Most cars have a 100k miles plugs interval ....

I would still do mine at 4/40k. There are only six (as opposed to 12 on my 993).

The oil change seems pretty reasonable. My 10k miles oil change on my Panamera 4 was ú300, although that did include the oil.

I'm also getting close to my 4yr/40k service and want to see what others are paying. I plan on getting quotes from a couple local dealers, but so far have been told $2400 (!) from the first dealer.

If anyone in the DC area has a recommendation for a dealer that will do the 40k service at a reasonable price around here, please PM me with the details.

Are they giving you a reach around for $2400?

Should be around $1500-1800.

If you have a garage and some tools you can do it for $350

It is indeed good to see a 911 cab owner, living in Chicago, driving their car 40k miles in 4 years. Too many garage queens in the Boston area.
Cost of ownership is what it is. The 40k service price is quite reasonable.

In October, had the 4 year service done (at 26K miles). I provided the plugs, engine air filters and serpentine belt (since rear bumper coming off anyway per LexVan's recommendation). Also had them do my second brake flush but no oil change. Did some negotiating and it cost $950. Thought it was reasonable
