Big thumbs up for 911 SBD if anyone is North London based and need their pride and joy tended to

It's the first service I've put my 996T through since ownership last September - has previously been looked after by 9E but that's too far for me to travel to. I went for the major service for peace of mind - also had the brake fluid change

I managed to get a booking the following day after calling and they turned it around in 2.5 hours. They provided a full report of items that need sorting out, the main one being the rear main seal

2.5 hours for a major seems rather quick. Did they do plugs and a full inspection?

Full inspection: yes
Plugs: no

Out of curiosity, how long "should" it take?

I don't know I was just curious. To carry out the major service work and the checks, it seems quick but then Im not a mechanic. As long as you're happy with the work that's all that matters. Thumb

What did the 'full report' say Dont know

If it took 10 mins or 10 days then it's not really relevant as long as it is a 'full' report....or is that me being cynical Confused

I guess sarfend was thinking of your best interests too and not questioning their integrity Dont know

If you are happy then that's all that matters Thumb

It took my indie a day to do all the fluids (except PAS), filters and plugs on my C4. He also did a full report right down to the fuel filler not locking.
