Why don't you do it yourself and save $$? It's easy.

Econo Lube. I bring the oil, filter, crush ring and a cheat sheet. I take two minutes with the tech for a little "Boxster orientation meeting". $21.99

I would love to but I just don't trust myself.

How much would you spend on the oil, filter, crush ring and cheat sheet (what is this?)?

Go to Mazz AutoSport in Las Tunas (San Gabriel)- A year ago, they charged me around $80 for everything (Royal Purple Synth, OEM filter, Tax, Labor)....This price beats a DIY in terms of convenience.
Look for Ethan.

Oil, filter, crush ring = $80+/-
My Cheat sheet = A simple checklist with specialty tools, torque settings, drain 30 min, refill 8.5qts only & I top off later.

$80 including labor is very cheap. My dealer offered to take care of my oil change last year for $450.

$80 including labor..... Wow, that's a killer price.
When I did it myself, I had $50 in oil and $15 for the filter.. total $65.
For the extra $15 bucks, I would have waited in the office and drank coffee.
