I have done all of my personal Boxster maintenace in a rented garage bay (brake job..rotors, pads; oil & filter changes; sparkplug changes; replaced fuel filter).

Being a retired Soldier, I have access to what is call Sprockets on Fort Hood. Just about every Army post has an equivalent do-it-yourself auto maintenance facility.

It costs me $4.00 to $5.00 per hour to rent the bay. The bays have modern lifts (drive up or lift by the frame). They have a buttload of tools to include air wrenches, engine hoists, torque wrenches, you name it they have it available and all you have to do is ask for it and sign it out at no cost.

The best thing about it is that they have mechanics on duty to help you out if you have questions or are having trouble doing something.
