Default where to find maintenance schedule(s)

Looking to buy 01 boxter s, 62k miles.

car has NOT had 60,000 mile service.

-where can I find what is involved, and estimated costs?

-need this number for price negotiations

also, any opinions on high mile cars?

or board to visit?

I've been reading petes boxter board and renntech...

Here is a link to the 01 maint. schedule from Mike Focke's Boxster site
http://mike.focke.googlepages.com/ma...lpagesfor%2701
Mike has compiled a huge amount of info on the Boxster and is a great resource for the DIYer.
He also has a pretty good buyers guide.

You could always go to the dealer and as him how much $ for a 60K service by the book (You might want to be sitting down though...)

At 60K, Herb Chambers in Boston charges $1,528.90 plus misc and environmental chgs.

The 40K is also about $1,300.

Includes a free wash and vacuum though!!

May also require oil seperator (and breather hose dependant on year), oil fill hose, spark plug tubes and o-rings. Most of those have a 60K life span.

Front engine mount if still the old style.
