Why Have A Proper Porshe Service
March 12, 2011
Owning a Porsche vehicle is a dream for most people. There are so many makes and models, colours and specifications. But one thing they all have is power, status and good design.
Whether you use your Porsche for work, play or both, it is important to maintain regular Porsche servicing to ensure your high performance car is at its optimum level of performance as well as safety. Because high performance cars are driven harder than the average family saloon car, sports cars need to be maintained fully and regularly. Most Porsche owners are devoted to their Porsche motors and look after them so that they remain in pristine condition.
All drivers of fast, high performance cars will drive differently to each other. Some drivers are heavy on the brakes, some may be heavy handed on steering and nearly all Porsche drivers will also like to put their foot down when driving their car. So having a regular Porsche service is really important to ensure tyres, brakes, clutches, drive shafts and suspension are all working and in good order to optimise the car's performance and speed.
People have the perception that Porsche cars are more costly to run and look after. However, this is not always so. A Porsche service can be implemented every 20,000 miles or every two years, whatever comes first. This service interval is for Porsche motors made after 2005. But if you have an older Porsche model that is pre-2005, then there will be different Porsche servicing intervals according to the make, model and age of your car. It is down to you to know when your Porsche car is due either a full or interim service so that it is maintained in top condition. If you are doing a lot of mileage, especially if you use your Porsche for business mileage, then you will need to have a Porsche service more regularly, and also consider having an interim service that will check overall brakes, spark plugs, water, oil, filters and fluids between your full service. This also will help to maintain your car's optimum level of performance and quality.
Ensure that only original parts are used in your Porsche service, so go to a solid, reputable garage that have Porsche trained technicians. It is best to do your research and find one that has solid experience and workmanship with Porsche vehicles. The last thing you will want to do is use a garage that uses inferior parts on your car and have technicians that aren't skilled in Porsche. This may lead to dangerous parts being fitted that are not legal, and will also invalidate your car warranty.
