Are you sure that price is correct at the dealer? The fluids alone at dealer prices are nearly that.

18k service is :

Front and rear differential service
Transmission
Engine oil

Normally labor is 5 hours, but we do it at 4 hours - $396

We normally use Dodson trans fluid - $64.99 per takes about 9
For the diffs we use Redline - $12.95 per takes 3
Engine Oil - Redline 0-40 - $10.95 - takes 5.5
K&N Oil Filter - $10.85

Retail on the trans is $79.99 per. They may do 8-9-10 depending on how they do the math.

Retail on the diff is $59.99 Takes 3.

Mobil 1 is about $10 per at a dealer. Takes 5.5-6

Oil Filter is about $7

Ok, thanks. I may call another dealer nearby and get a quote from them and compare. Seems the nismo shop has a good deal on the tranny fluid. Can I use dodson and not worry bout the dealer saying anything?

10L of GTR specific trans fluid: $500 ($50 each)
3L Castrol diff fluid: $105 ($35 each)
6L Mobil 1 synthetic engine oil with filter: $50
Labor $100
-------------------------------------------------------------
Total: $755

(on a side note, the OPs estimate was for the fluids only. I confirmed by calling my local Nissan stealership)

Might want to ask them for a quote that is broken down...
That price seems a bit to low for fluids and labor...

I agree that price from a dealer is way low. My dealer in ny gave me an estimate of around $1800. that would include the trans fluid the diff fluid oil change and labor.

I forgot to mention that the price mentioned above is the the actual price given to me from my close friend who happens to be the GTR tech at my local Nissan dealer.

It does take about 4hrs to complete. It's not as easy to drain the trans when compared to the diff and engine. He had to take a manual type vacuum device to syphon the remaining fluid out of the trans then use the same tool to fill it up.
