It looks like the kind of servicing you'd do on an LMP car. Easy enough, as long as you have a lift and don't mind taking the back half of your car off.

Is the 911 much better by basically requiring you to drop the engine

I mean, it only took me a few hours to drop the engine out of K’s 993TT.

Sure, but did you manage to get it put back together?

The VW shop that we use for the GTI had a base Cayman in for a clutch replacement. I was naturally curious. He said that the labor for the Cayman (~$1k) was easier than that for the GTI (~$1.5 - 2k).
