60,000 mile service

Hi All. Does anyone know where I can print a list of the 'to do's' for the 60,000 mile service? I am on the little island of Tenerife with not too many Porsches on it and although there is a main dealer here I would like to walk in armed with as much info (and a check list!) as possible. My 1997 Boxster has only got 25000 mile on it and after the last oil change 4000 miles ago the oil on the stick is still as gold in color as when it was poured in. BUT I will be keeping this car for a while and would like the IMS bearing and all the other common faults taken care of before they make themselves known. I could probably do all the work myself but I really enjoy the feeling of getting my cars back after major servicing and tweaking, I'm just not confident in this dealership yet.
Any info and advice gratefully received.

Try this link: 30k Mile Scheduled Maintenance (30k, 60k, 90k, 120k, 150k, 180k, 210k, 240k, 270k, 300k, 330k, 360k)

For the 60k service, you will need to do everything required at a 15k, 30k and 60k service intervals.

I'll leave advice on the IMS upgrade to others.

Awesome! My favorite color combo!

Look at doing the IMS when you do the clutch, unless you start having problems sooner. Some people hit 200k and don't have any issues , some have tons at 40k. Frequent oil changes seem to be the general consensus for preventive care.

You might want to consider replacing some things due to age as well as mileage. Water pump comes to mind. Others may have some good ideas too.
