At 2 years, but only 4k miles, I had oil/filter, brake fluid flush, and all checks done at my local Porsche Dealer in NE PA last month. This was described as 2 year service. Cost was around $450.

3 year is just an oil change like the 1 year. 2x oil changes at ~300 each and your 2 year (minor) service is $1800.

The 4 year service is the only one that should be any different on .2s because the spark plugs are harder to get to with the turbos in the way.

not many of those hanging around Manhattan parking garages. And don’t get me started on how much those cost me.

I really feel sympathy for people that don't wrench either because of time constraints or knowledge.

If you really want to see a NY tax, look at the price that they are charging for cars in Porsche of Southampton, NY. I cringe just to look - they are so far over the top its ridiculous.
or in my case time constraints AND knowledge. The Southampton service department is the same deal too.

i'll be sure to get the breakdown today. there is a slight caveat in that i do have an indy who wouldn't look at this persistent rattle issue in my left door. i guess i could have just made two trips. but we'll see if they can fix it at porsche of manhattan. plus it's fun to go see the lambos and bentlleys in the show room. not 1550 dollars worth of fun though

It's just not the hourly rate. It's the whole book time vs actual time game that's played.

like many places in NYC, you are paying for the view at MMC. Although, you should try and negotiate the hourly rate next time. If you tell/show them a local dealer charges XYZ they may match it. I had a few things under warranty done there.

There are so many really competent Porsche indy shops very close in the area. No affiliation whatsoever, but Apex Autowerks, Aspen Autosports, Stable Energies, Powertech to name just a few. No need to get hosed by the NYC dealers for a glorified oil change.
Yes but on the other hand if you're in the middle of manhattan, travelling to Jersey or long island for small services can be a glorious pain in the backside.

I see my post was confusing. I understand what I need for an oil change. I was also asking how much the OP would expect to pay for his 20k service at a reputable indy vs the dealer.
