Just an update, East London want £325 for a brake fluid change, even when done with a minor service! Fully booked until April so I can only presume sufficient people out there paying these prices. Either that or the majority of their work is warranty work, which I suspect is the case.

I'm confused, are we talking about the same company. Kwik Fit have over 500 locations across the UK and four within 10 miles of where I live?
Bennachie's post saying KwikFit were long gone in Edinburgh was obviously wrong. KwikFit are still definitely in business nationwide.
🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

Reading and Guildford OPCs are both owned by Porsche Retail Group and will generally quote the same high prices and decline to discount. Try an independently-owned OPC.
Thanks for the advice. I gave Swindon Porsche (part of the Dick Lovett group) a call and their brake fluid change cost was £145. Taken together with their lower cost for my 4yr service, I'm saving approximately £400 altogether compared to the aforementioned OPCs!
Good old Swindon! 😎
Super info… Noted Swindon Porsche !!

Brake fluid change is usually recommended every two years or so, but it can vary based on mileage. Since you're hitting 20K miles at the 18-month mark and your service is in March, waiting until September sounds like a reasonable plan.

I use OPC Swindon. Care to share the 4yr service £ charge there. If you have a pano roof, have they given you a separate quote for clearing the drains?
All prices inc vat :
4yr service : £581
PDK Fluid change : £616
Brake fluid change : £145
Check drain tubes : £63

If the car is 6yr old or has done 40k miles there is an additional charge for changing the spark plugs. I didn't get a quote for that as I'm about 1 year away from 40k miles.
