How much have you done in your first year of ownership?

I bought my 2000 Boxster in December 2011, and since then have spent more than I think my wife knows. The latest addition was a set of 18" wheels that I had refinished and put on new rubber. I put on a NHP muffler and some exterior bits - smoked side markers, a silver/black emblem, and replaced the broken Boxster script.

I wrapped some of the interior pieces with carbon fiber wrap, but I'm thinking of having them hydro graphic'd for a more professional look.

With maintenance costs and the add-ons, I think I'm easily close to $3000.00 (I had to fix a dent from the previous owner).

I don't mind spending the money cause it makes me smile every time I hear that engine roar.

Bought my 02 S in July of 2012 with 8700 miles. Installed new filter and 91 octane fuel. That's about it so far. Almost ready to do my first oil change too. Guess I better knock on wood!

Starting from the front of the car going toward the tail end:

Drivers side radiator: Small leak on at the mounting lug, symptoms occasional fluid by tire on hot days. Seems the bumper was tapped and cracked the mount.
Grill guards on radiator intake Protection from debris build up in radiators.
Canister Purge valve: Code from Durametric
Horn Old horn was to quite, replaced with Stebulis air horn
Front suspension and rear complete suspension and sway bar bushings Struts were completely shot with no dampening, bushing were worn and cracked.
Wheel bearings Replaced all four wheel bearings with a tool that allowed the job to be completed in only 5 hours for all four wheels!
Rotors and pads Worn to maximum extent possible.
Water pump and low temp thermostat: No symptoms, just an upgrade. Old components were working
Fan Belt:Replaced older belt
AOSSaw increased oil build up in the throttle body and small puffs of smoke in the morning.
Spark plugs/tube/coils Plugs were clean but replaced with new, tubes showed signs of moderate to severe leaks, coils replaced as preventative measure.
Rear Main Seal (RMS) Seal had failed and was leaking
IMS No visible leakage, but bearing was in stage 1 failure in that there was no grease and bearing was filled with engine oil.
All three cam chain tensioners Under harmonic analysis there was a large signal to noise ratio, when removed all three showed signs of internal spring failure when compared to new tensioners.
Clutch, pressure plate, throughout bearing, dual mass flywheel While there were no symptoms, they were all roasted and were close to failure.
Super clutch kit from Pelican This is offered from Pelican and replaced all the other parts associated with the clutch components
Clutch Master and Slave cylinders Replaced as part of a preventative measure
Clutch fluid line and connector This is required with upgrading the slave cylinder (will add about $320 to add these two parts)
CV joints and all boots and axle nuts Preventative replacement.
Transmission and Engine mounts All were shot but showed no signs of failure (I may not have recognized the signs???)
Oil filter housing Upgrading a 14 year old component
Radiator Reservoir While there was no leakage the tank was severely aged and showed spiderwebs cracks.
New JDM seats with lowered mounting bracket Considered to be an upgrade from OEM seats providing better seating position.
JDM performance steering wheel Personal choice allowing better driving position
Gahh new top (soft window) Replacing older top which is beginning to show cracking in window.
Conversion of top Converted top to manual while retaining power clam shell operation (personal choice).
Sirius radio Upgraded for personal choice
LCD control panel for heater/AC Replaced due to failure of switches and LCD (nice replacement for $57 verses the $750 OEM replacement cost!
Various pieces and parts as well as tools to aide in the work process
Alignment Once my wheels are back from powder coating she will get her patas set straight so she runs true.

I did a pretty good accounting for costs from last year here: Yearly Track Costs (or how to spend $20K/yr on a $10K Porsche)

Since I published that list, I've replaced the spark plugs, all 6 coil packs, and I am having the the top replaced today (Robbins glass window).

Previous to that list I've replaced the AOS, starter, rear wheel bearings, rebuilt/repacked CV joints, transaxle spider gear, clutch, throw-out bearing, flywheel, major service, spark plug tubes.

I have a water pump, 160F thermostat, and the Boxster S oil cooler sitting here ready for installation this weekend.

Looks like us 986 owners are doing more than our fair share to re-vitalize the economy!

Not much up until today!
2000 base

Day 2 - replace ignition switch at dealership. They only had the full ignition switch / steering lock in stock. Best $570 I ever spent ;-) as it let me actually drive the car I just purchased!

CV boots on one axle - $250

Oil change - $150

New tires (today!) - $1150

Alignment (tomorrow) - $125

Miscellaneous (wiper blades, hood/trunk shocks etc...) ~$200

So I appear to be at ~$2500 in six months..... Hmm that hurts to add it up.

I expect the brakes to be good for another year, maybe longer now!

I would never have put this kind of money in any other car, so whats the point of doing this math? This is much cheaper than therapy and a whole lot more fun! I suggest deleting this pointless thread.

I have only had mine since July so the year is not over!

CV Boots
Spark plug tubes
Front Brake Pads and Rotors
CDR 220 iPod connector
Gas cap
Hella Clear side markers
Floor Mats
Oil change
Brake Flush
TS Cat Bypass
TS Exhaust
Light Switch module

To do:
-Short Shift
-New top, not sure which one to go with yet(GAHH or Robbins but it will be glass) or color(Blue or Black)
-clutch, IMS, RMS
-repaint calipers
-replace rear emblem
-engine mount

That's it for now. My biggest problem is time! I have a house that needs some more work as well plus I need time to just go drive!
