I'm pleasantly surprised by the maintenance figures, this is not far from what I had in my mind as well. Cheers and have a great 2023!
I think one can get routine service done for a much lower cost outside A.S.S. if a trustworthy garage is an option. Older Porsche cars are very well engineered for DIY maintenance with excellent online guides. The only trouble is if the car requires anything beyond regular maintenance, it can make a grown man cry. All said and done, this is one of those "red buttons" one gotta push when the opportunity presents itself. Worth the sacrifices in other departments.

I made an attempt to create a video. Even though basic, almost all the footage is contributed by my younger son. Mind the sound level :-)

I'm very jealous of the greenery that you seem to live in.

The action of the lady putting her hands on the dash as you accelerated was super cute. Reminds me of the times I do it when the wifey puts the pedal to the metal when we drive.

Not everyone is so lucky!
The moment I try to feel the Vroom, I get brutally 'broomed' by my better half

Quick update as the 997 has crossed the 997KM mark 26 times

Finally got to drive on the Bangalore-Mysore expressway and the PDK doesn't disappoint.

Fell for the Google maps trap and ended up passing through small hamlets completely lost. Amused but helpful villagers managed to save me from the narrow "bike only" kachha roads. In the bargain, I got to experience some lovely countryside.

Of course, not everyone is that helpful!

The heart always longs for what lies beyond the expressways:
