    it's a beautiful 904, isn't it? My brain thought it was already the weekend, and I'd already had an Irish coffee.

    Warning. This post contains Porsche SUV content. And itís dirty. Viewer discretion is advised.

    The manual says 20,000 km for the first oil change but no way I was going to let it go that far. The Macan ticked over 12,500 last week and my OCD kicked in. Itís too cold to comfortably wrench in the driveway now and my garage is unheated and too small to work in. So I tried a DIY garage. For $30/hour I get a heated bay, a two post lift and oil disposal. Thereís tools too and a mechanic if I run into trouble. An added bonus was that the kids came along for some father-daughter time.

    I have to say that working under a lift is amazing. Itís like flying business after a lifetime in coach. Itís luxurious to stroll under the car; shit doesnít fall in your face, tools roll with you and you get space for leverage. Iím not sure I can go back to being a driveway mechanic anymore.

    I have a bone to pick to the Porsche engineers though. They made an oil change overly complicated. To get to the oil pan I had to remove 15 x T20 screws AND two panel pins. The panel pins were a real irritant and would have been a PIA if Iíd been doing this on ramps and a creeper. Why screws and panel pins? I shouldnít need two tools to remover the engine under-cover. And it means I need to have a spare set of pins around because those things are going to break at some point. And who puts the oil filter housing at the bottom of an engine? It must be a 911 thing. On the plus side though, the filter was absolutely clean. Very impressive for a first oil change. Porsche must run and flush the engines before shipping them out.

    30 minutes in total for an oil change. It took about 15 minutes to fill out the liability waivers for the garage but I wonít have to do that again. The dealership wanted $450 for an oil change and even the local Indy wanted $350. Jeez. Genuine Porsche parts were only $50 plus $50 for oil. And yes I bought a new pan bolt and (genuine) crush washer because thatís what the service manual says I should do. Iím stupid that way.

    New Year. New oil. All the best for 2019!

    Good for you. DIY is the way to go. HAHA btw the reason there are all those torx screws and that panel is because the car is aerodynamic and made to thrash at high speeds. There is a price to pay for the fun factor ;)
