The valves become very loud when an adjustment is necessary.

Any experienced mechanic can hear it when one/more valves need adjustment(s).

Another way to tell is to compare it to another 911 in terms of valve noise (one that you know has been adjusted).

I very much doubt that your valves will need an adjustment... learn it next time, it's not very difficult (heck, next to the oil change it's one of the easiest things). That's my advice.

Tilt the car left and do the right valves and the other way around to avoid an oil change if that is still good. (I only read about this, never tried it and always change my oil at the same time).
