I have been waiting for a 911 for decades. Ready to buy one for two years. Check prices at least twice weekly. And I am in the PCA. You think I might be surprised by prices ??He might be backing off replacing those vehicles once he sees "real world" pricing. Many of us are on the sidelines waiting.....
Hope you understand that I am looking for a used car that may have had 10k service intervals. For a car i own it gets 2 changes a year.Do what feels good to you. Me well 7500 miles is my limit. But frankly 7154 is the closest I ever got with my October/April OCI!
Well...you haven't pulled the trigger. Why? There hasn't been a decent example in all your browsing?I have been waiting for a 911 for decades. Ready to buy one for two years. Check prices at least twice weekly. And I am in the PCA. You think I might be surprised by prices ??
Well i had 20 grand ready when I got a serious career ending brain injury a couple years ago. Then was ready for a 99 or 2000 996 for 18 k when covid hit. Now have 30 k to spend on a car and the 99 porsche is now 32 k. So twice the price in 20 months. For 30 k hoping for a first year 997 with manual.. a coupe.Well...you haven't pulled the trigger. Why?

My all time record is 5,500, nowadays it's 4000 or less. If I had an engine that held 2+ gallons of oil I might be okay going 10k, but not much over that.I'm not going to 10,000. I gotten closer to that mark than I thought I would at times.
On my cul de sac this point of view is valid. There are neighbors with a porsche and its daily driven. Another daily drives their Maserati. The two garage queens are the neighbors with Corvettes.I think you'll find that among cars of similar caliber, more Porsches are still used every day and owner maintained than any other.
the 5.0 engine sucks big time. frequent oil changes are a waste of your money and not your problem unless you’re actually trying to keep it out of warrantyMy 2021 Jaguar F Type R has a recommended 16,000 mile or 1 year OCI. The sump holds 7 quarts. I sure don't feel comfortable with a 16,000 OCI.
The warranty covers scheduled maintenance for free but I think I am going to do my own oil changes at around 7500 miles and let the dealer perform another one when it hits the recommended mark.
The oil for the car is a specially blended Castrol 0W-20 synthetic that is only available at Jaguar/Land Rover dealers. It takes a cannister filter as well, so the materials will run in the neighborhood of $130 for a change. But considering that it isn't a $25,000 econobox that doesn't seem excessive and the peace of mind from exceeding the manufacturer's intervals is worth it to me.
