98 Tip - 120k
02 S - 100k
04 CTT - 120k
Still in the stage of fixing things on the 98 & CTT due to previous owners' lack of proper maintenance, combined with normal wear & tear. The 02 S was rearended a few weeks ago and still in the shop sorting through alignment issues. So while it's not been a cheap few years, we enjoy all of them very much.

My 02 S just hit 99,999 today. I'm not driving it anymore. Yeah right! Factory IMSB Replaced at 82,000 miles. Original was caught just in time, it was a single row, oil leaking, stage 3 failure mess. Glad I replaced before it failed completely, also replaced clutch, motor mount, water pump, thermostat, and a wheel bearing. Looking forward to the next 100,000.

Just about to cross 200,000 miles. Overall, car has been great. Otherwise only minor things here and there, nothing different than any other car I ever owned.
Very happy with my car, hoping to keep it up as long as possible. It still looks like it's Jo more than 5 years old or so.

99 base purchased in Feb 2013 with 112k. 1 owner Good ppi and all service records. Had clutch and LN ims bearing done at same time shortly after purchase. Car know has 119 k on it and feels smoother and sounds better than my buddies 03 S. The 2.5 liter engine is smooth as silk and sounds great with stock exhaust. One lesson I have learned in my year with her is to let the pros do the work. I find I break things when attempting minor repairs and I'm somewhat mechanically inclined

Feeling a bit lonely? All those sub 50k mile '99s may never make it to your thread...

After extensive analysis I have discovered the single common element that leads to making it to a high mileage. EVERY SINGLE high mileage car is actually driven!!!

I bought my 2000 Boxster S with 111,000 on the clock. I have had to correct some poor mechanical work and of course I replaced the IMSB. I now have 125,000 miles and I drive it like I stole it every day!

2000 S with 116K owned for almost 6 years (purchased with 76K). All routine maintenance done and a few other little items. No clutch WP or IMS work done.

2003 S with 105K owned since late January of this year. Clutch and IMS done at 80K.
Both are great cars.

2000 base. 100,510 mi. Purchased April 2008 @ 70,000 mi.
3 x water pump replacements. 1 AOS failure. Talk about embarrassing: Beautiful
sunny day in June. Came out of busy convenience store, started car, smoke totally
stopped all movement in parking lot. Zero visibility until smoke cleared, but only for a minute or so.
Have new Robbins glass window top. The installer my long time indy recommended is not interest in the job.
Really enjoy car. No regrets.
