Maintenance Log Book.

My car is a 1998 and well out of guarantees etc. It was a Japanese import into New Zealand and as such the books are all Japanese. I will be doing my own maintenance and was wondering if anyone had a Spreadsheet or similar that I can use to document my servicing.

Just done a 3000K round trip here in NZ along all the secondary roads. What a blast. Really great here as the speed limit is 100kph and if you can maintain that, you will be a world rally champion. The roads are good quality but very twisty. The best you can do is average around 80kph. The car (and me) just loved it.

Cheers Wallace.

Good day Mate, the single best thing you can do is change the oil often with the only oil made specifically for early Boxster engines. It is called DT40 made by Driven Racing.

Some of my CA neighbors are visiting their Kiwi neighbors in Christ Church if you know any Whelans! Ga Day!

Average speed limit in U.S. is 120 Kmh and 136 Kmh in some rural areas.
Never miss an oil/filter change and always use [your favorite] synthetic oil
