That's a pretty good price installed. If you're mechanically inclined, you can buy the manual and all of the parts for $500 and DIY it. I ordered the whole clutch kit, a new RMS, the recommended bolts for replacement of the RMS and a new pilot bearing for $400 shipped.

We have 102K on our clutch and it is still tight. I'm replacing it soon anyway because I can hear the throwout bearing making a little noise. I don't know if the T/O bearing can be catastrophic in the Boxster, but it can in the 928 so I want to be safe.
