I just had my first service at Palm Beach MC. Set me back about $287.00. I thought that was a lot. Anybody pay that for the 1000 mile service?

what do they do besides change the oil and get an ecu dump for lotus' benefit?
They are supposed to go over everything and check the bolts for tightness. At least they should...

nxm150,
I think that the charge at Rothrock is $230, including the 5W40 (NOT 5W30) synthetic oil. You can save about $30 by providing your own oil (the specified Havoline may be hard to find around here -- I used Valvoline with no protests). I think the labor was about $180, but I don't have my receipt here. By the way, had my 1000 mile service done there on 11/19, and was pretty much satisfied with the service dept. Their sales force is a different topic.

Mine was $300 at the same place- I posted the breakdown of everything about a week ago.

edited to show breakdown

$40 for oil, $25.90 for the filter, $204 labor, $1.48 oil drain plug gasket, $12.24 waste disposal fee(It says they charge 6% of the labor rate for this) and $17.01 tax.


Wonder why mine was $13 more:confused:

Jim, thanks for the reply, I am equal distance between Rothrock and Criswell. I know Criswell is 300+.

More labor or more oil, they used 2 quarts more than OFL 1st car and 1 more than her 2nd car. I guess the better they drain it the more oil they'll use ;)

funny how yours used 6 quarts but mine only used 4 quarts and 5 quarts respectively.
They did charge me $6.75 a quart.
