two year maintenance work

Hi all
My 06 boxster needs its 2 year maintenance work. Carlsen wants $450 for the job. Seems pricey to me. Any suggestions?

Actualy, that price doesn't sound too bad but it all depends on what it actually includes. I know you said it's the 2-year maintenance, but how many miles does it cover?

There's no actual Maintenance schedule by time, other than you should replace the oil once per year and the brake fluid once every two years.
There is a schedule by mileage. This is what you may need.


Major maintenance of 30 000, 60 000, 90 000, 120 000 miles etc.
❏Change engine oil and oil filter
❏Replace spark plugs: Only On 911 (996) and Boxster up to 2000 and 911 Turbo 2001 (For 2001 911 (996) and Boxster, see 60 000 mile schedule)
❏Air filter: Replace filter element
❏Diagnosis system: Read out fault memory
❏Polyrib belt: Check condition
❏Underside of vehicle & engine compartment: Visual inspection for leaks (oils & fluids) & chafing (wires, lines & hoses)
Check that the underbody paneling is securely fastened replace any damaged and/or missing panels
❏Coolant hoses: Check condition. Radiators and air inlets: Visual inspection for external debris and blockage
❏Coolant: Check level and antifreeze
❏Pollen filter: Replace filter element
❏Fuel system: Visual inspection for damage, correct routing and firm seating of the line connections
❏Power-assisted steering: Check fluid level
❏Parking brake: Check free play of the parking brake lever
❏Brake system: Visual inspection of the brake pads and brake discs for signs of wear
❏Brake hoses and lines: Visual inspection for damage, correct routing and corrosion
❏Brake fluid: Check level
❏Clutch: Check play or final position of pedal
❏Throttle actuation: Check smoothness of operation, full-throttle position with the tester
❏Steering gear: Visual inspection of the bellows for signs of damage
❏Tie rod ends: Check play and dust boots
❏Axle joints: Check play, visual inspection of the dust boots for signs of damage
❏Check tightness on the front and rear suspension adjustment points
❏Drive shafts: Visual inspection of the boots for leaks and signs of damage
❏Exhaust system: Visual inspection for leaks and signs of damage, check mounts
❏Tires and spare wheel: Check condition and tire pressure
❏Check firewall and cabrio section body drains for debris
❏Door locks, lid locks & safety hook of the front lid: Check to ensure that they are adjusted and function properly
❏Seat belts: Check operation and condition
❏Vehicle lights: Check operation. All headlights: Check alignment
❏Horn: Check operation
❏Windshield washer, headlight washer: Check fluid level & nozzle settings, make sure to check the antifreeze during winter months
❏All other electrical equipment as well as indicator and warning lights: Check operation


Happy Boxstering,
Pedro

Sorry, the list above is wrong. That is for 986 and 996.
All of the MY05-07 Porsche cars have much extended maintenance schedules.
The 2 year maintenance for a MY06 Boxster is minimal.
PM me if you want a list of the full factory maintenance (that the dealer uses) for your MY06 Boxster.

For an 06 987 the first maintenance is to be done after 2 years or 20k miles.
