Couple other things .... great idea to change the crush rings. But not something you absolutely MUST do every time if yours is still in good shape.

Getting the oil changed at the Porsche dealer is a supreme rip off. But I also think the hassle factor of doing it myself has some negative value -- especially as it pertains to the sloppy inconvenience of draining, storing and moving the spent oil to a recycling location. Add that to the jacking and wrenching etc... maybe I'm just lazy.

I found a good middle ground at the local Quick Oil Change place. I take in my filter and tools which they wouldn't otherwise might not have (correct size allen wrench etc...) and let them do the wrenching and draining. Costs me $90 on the button. I can live with that given how much I drive her.
