Service Schedule for your Boxster or Boxster S

The following page details the official Porsche service schedule with some additional service items marked with a "+" to indicate that this is additional to the Porsche recommendations. These additions have been included as a result of observations with my previous 4 Boxsters, observations of owners experiences on the Boxster forums on the internet, talking to Porsche technicians and talking to independent Porsche specialists.

I strongly recommend you follow these recommendations, as they could mark the difference between and trouble free and a problematic (expensive) Boxster ownership experience.

Before you read the table, I should also advise you on how to choose which service your Boxster is due which can be a bit of a minefield, especially if your Boxsters annual mileage covered recently is different to what it covered early on in its life (It can get out of Sync)

A simple solution is what I use....

Firstly look down the table and find the age of your Boxster in Years, then compare the mileage of your Boxster. If the mileage of your Boxster is LESS than the mileage in the table next to the age, then that is the service you require. If however your mileage is more then I recommend that you ask the dealer or specialist who will be servicing your Boxster for assistance is choosing the service based on mileage or on age.

I know this service schedule, based on age and mileage, goes well beyond the age of any current Boxster, But I want to make this list future proof and without it needing updating, unless a new problem area or inspection recommendation comes to light.

This table should see your Boxster maintained at the correct times in the correct way.

NOTE: If you book your car in for a service, make sure you ask them what is included, more often than not there are items NOT included which may be due and may cost extra. For example, at 48,000 miles a main dealer will perform a major service, however spark plugs, drive belt, brake fluid, ac service will all be due and cost extra. (which they may go ahead and perform but will cost you more than you expect.)
