Coming up for my 2nd service soon, and the steel brakes are lasting far longer than on any of my Porsches,but no costs yet,as for belts everthing is direct drive so no maintanence there!! There are no major costs if you keep the service up,first 10k miles was £1200,then 20k is more because of the fluid change in the hydralics,then back to a minor service at 30k.Hello all,
Doing some due diligence on the car with a view to picking one up after a bit of depreciation has done its work.
Was also looking at the new Gen5 Viper..
The 12C looks eminently more sensible if running costs are sensible.
Can anyone shed light on the cost of pads and rotors for the steel brakes?
Also any comments on other consumables (other than tyres). Filters, Belts, Hoses etc?
I realise the marque is still under warranty, but I intend to be a long term owner who racks up considerable miles. Circa 15,000 miles PA.
Service costs seem ok as do the insurance costs.
Though I must admit to some fright at the price of the Ceramic Brakes noted in a recent post.
Any help and guidance appreciated.
Most parts have just had a price rise,but it would be easy for you just to ring the parts dept for a price.For my thoughts for a supercar if you factor in the sevice and an extended warrenty it will not be an expensive car to do high milage in as many of your miles will not put any stress on this quality of workmanship .
