Sweet. Mine is also an 04 Boxster S. Picked it up in March and had a lot of fun. Mine was just under 30k miles with no maintenance history but a good ppi. Ended up doing the 60k maintenance at 30, new tires, and a transmission fluid change. And I picked up the Durametic tool. Now itís in winter storage also. Have fun and enjoy

Yes PPI without compression/leakdown test (was steered away from that by the shop for some reason). Nothing major popped up, couple of small issues like the axle seals

Mileage isnít a biggie, Iíll drive this till our self driving overlords take over the road. For that Iíll have to refurb the seats etc

Iím in Indianapolis. I did the 60k service at the dealer and the transmission flush at a local Indy shop that has Porsche trained mechanics. I did the tranny flush as I had two codes on the tiptronic and with 15 year old fluid figured I would give that a shot before digging deeper. All is well and the tranny codes have not returned.
