Boxster Regular Wear and Tear Services (and when to change them)


I really love my 1998 2.5L 120k mile boxster and would like to know the usual Wear & Tear Services.. let's compile a list.

Engine Oil with Oil Filter (5k miles or half a year)
Spark plugs (10k miles or one year)
Iridium Spark Plugs (20k miles or two years)

What about the rest?

ATF change
Serpentine Belt
? Timing belt

In addition to the factory recommended maintenance:

Every year: replace the coolant tank cap, and wiper blades.

Every 2 years: clean the radiators, replace all four tires, always in November (just got a new set of Falken boots yesterday).

Just sayin'............
