Did annual service on my preowned Porsche 911: Tasks done, costs & more

Even though Porsche says the coolant is for life, I requested them to change the coolant for which they got back saying it's absolutely not required.

2022 ended on a very happy note!

Messi won the world cup (and I was there in Qatar having a blast!). Things are improving with Barca, no more tears week in week out!

Our bougainvillea plant has decided to come out of hibernation - decided to capture the mood before anything ruins it:

Started 2023 by taking the car to VST Porsche for annual servicing. This is my 3rd service visit and each time I visited a different dealer Porsche facility (Friends automobiles - Indira Nagar Bimal Maruti, EVM Porsche Kochi - Whitefield Raja Skoda, VST Porsche - central Bangalore). The final bill came up to 997xx.00 - talk about coincidences! I got some goodies (new year season) - threw the candy and kept the basket:

Service included change of front brake pads and wiper blades. Previous owner gave me a set of front brake pad parts which Porsche agreed to fit (they had to order wear sensors and few nuts, etc.). They actually skipped some service items that I approved after inspecting the car. Estimate included spark plug change which I approved but they felt the change was not necessary as the spark plugs looked fine. They also sent work-in-progress pictures on WhatsApp:

Even though Porsche says the coolant is for life, I requested them to change the coolant for which they got back saying it's absolutely not required. I might insist for a change of coolant in future but overall I was glad they were not eager to rack up the bill amount. Ordering parts takes time and need to plan in advance but overall service experience is very good.

Here is hoping for a great 2023 to all of us!!
