2002 BOXSTER 2.7 Major Service

Hello everyone,

I have booked my boxster to get a major service done (80,000km)

They have informed me that the cost of this will be between 1000 - 1200 euro!!!

I have also been quoted 150 euro for a new remote unit as mine has stopped working for some reason and cannot be fixed or reprogrammed!!!

Does anyone know or have a list of the things they will do for this service?? As it seems VERY VERY expensive.

I would talk more with the Service department but their English skill are somewhat low.....

When I called a dealer in Austria they also quoted around 1000 euro without any surprises turning up.

Also, if alyone has the details, I do not have the OBC but am aware that every boxster DOES have this as standard. How do you turn the outside temperature gauge on????? If possible....

Any info would be useful. Thanks in advance.

Thanks.

Steven.

I have seen $950-$1100 USD for the major service in Pac. NW Remotes are VERY expensive from the dealer from what I have seen also.

As an option, you can do much of the service work yourself and hire out the hard stuff. The oil change, for example, may be $250 of that and is very easy to do IMO. Working on it yourself also gives you the chance to do things that I don't think the dealer does such as change coolant and clean throttle body. Just an option. One benefit of having the dealer do the service is they check every little thing but of course you could have them do an inspection only for much less.
