maintenance schedule for a boxster

I am looking to buy a boxster in the near future and would like to know what their maintenance schedule is so I can keep this in consideration when buying. Does anyone have the schedule that I could use as a reference.

The basic factory recommended schedule calls for servicing every 15K miles. However quite a few owners do oil changes more frequently (about 7,500 miles) as a DIY task. Major servicing varies a bit by model year. I forget where the separation is (2003?) but earlier cars do a major service, including plugs, at 30K while the latter years are at 60K. The serpentine belt gets changed at 60K and is easily a DIY job - taking about 15-20 minutes depending on abilities.

There's a great post on Buying a Used Boxster in the FAQ section in case you haven't seen it yet.
