Well, I knew that with this title, the thread would get a lot of looks But I'm not interested in being flamed. This concerns repair costs. I was talking to the Porsche Service Manager today and he mentioned that they were starting to get a few Carerra GTs in for oil changes and scrapped front ends- that car is LOW. An oil change is easily over a grand. It turns out that to get to the oil pan you need to unscrew 128 screws of different sizes, so each one needs to be color coded by the Service Tech. To replace the front underside clip will cost an owner a cool 40K-when the part comes, which will be in about 18-24 months. Dont know if these stories are true but this is a major dealer whose Service Manager usually is a straight on guy. If so, I would say that Porsche has out-Ferrarid Ferrari when it comes to maintenance.
