Boxster Engine hoses?

Hi,
I'm getting ready to take my 2007 to the mechanic to get some maintenance done, spark plugs, oil change, brakes, belts, air filters, etc.
On my previous car, I used to replace the engine hoses every few years, but I can't find any info about the Boxster hoses. Does the Boxster use hoses that should be replaced?, if so can anyone recommend a parts vendor?
Thanks

Yes, there are several coolant hoses on the Boxster. Most people only replace them if they leak or when they replace the water pump (which seems to fail much earlier than any of the hoses).

I would not worry about the hoses. When I replaced the water pump on my '99 over the summer I was really surprised that all of the hoses were still in really good condition. If you are concerned ask your mechanic do to a visual inspect of the hoses, specifically for any cracking or wrinkling.
