2013 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet: Road Trip to L.A., Maintenance Required

April 25, 2013

2013 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet

This maintenance minder popped up somewhere in Colorado letting me know that our 2013 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet was due for its first service in 900 miles.

Sorry, buddy. We're just over 1,000 miles from home and I'm not stopping early for an oil change.

I put it on the list of things to do once I got back to L.A.

    So when driving the car how often do you get asked, "What's an oil change run?" I get that with our BMW now and then from friends. Interestingly enough our BMW dealership just came out with an $80 "Value Line" oil change for e90 and e46 3-series. Cheaper than the independent shops. No more $200 oil changes!

  • s197gt: Almost never. I'm not sure if it's because of the way LA operates, but this question has never come up. Lots of "Bet that'll be expensive when it breaks!" comments, but never just on the cost of an oil change. -mm
