How Many Miles Are On Your 986/987?

Our in-house Boxster "Carrera" has roughly 80k. It does not have the original engine, thanks to our tech article on the Carrera engine swap.

Post up yours below with how many miles are on the chassis and if you've ever had any major engine work done.

110,000 miles on our MY2004 S. Runs great and uses next to no oil. Hope to have it for a long time.

Does have a Pedro/RS Tune IMS DOF.

Just replaced the trailing arms, but the rest of the suspension seems to have a lot more life in it.

Apx 43,000 mi, MY01. Just standard annual maintenance with exception of water pump and IMS upgrade (for piece of mind).

204,XXX 2002 Red S. I bought the car last year for $6k, dumped 3k into the cam chain adjuster. I believe this engine is the original, p.o. didn't know much. I have put 10,000 miles on it since I bought it and I drive the s**t out of it. I am hoping that one day it blows up and then I can either replace with a 3.8 or go LS3 on it.

Just back from an afternoon drive 106,375 miles. Clutch and preventive maint water pump, LNE classic IMSB, etc at 103k. AFAIK from maint records provided only regular / expected maint and replacements performed during the car's life. No major issues of any kind (knock on wood).

68,xxx on my 2003 S all put on it by me! It's had the IMSB replaced with an LN Single Row Pro at 42k, still on the original clutch. Added ROW M030 Sport Suspension at 65k, not because the original suspension was worn but because I wanted it. Also added an under drive pulley, Mantis deep sump and stainless steel flexible brake lines.
