Anyone in 100k mile club

Recommended Posts

My 2003 C2 cabriolet just rolled over 100k miles. I have learned a great many things about the 996, but struggle with the amount of time I spend working on this car. I love driving it, but it seems that all my spare time (which I have very little of) is spent fixing problems. Fortunately I have not experienced major failures. Just small things like replacing ignition switch, replacing cabrio hydraulic cylinders, and replacing window regulators. Have also had to have the dealer repair a broken water pump and install an ecu which was drowned in a rainstorm. Anyway I guess that's the price of ownership

All,

How are the high milers doing? 

More miles since posted or moved onto to low milers? 

 

Cheers!

I just bought a 1999 Boxster with 127,548 miles on it. It has a couple of things that I have to work out, mostly because the previous owner did not take care of it properly. But it still drives great.

Just clicked over 130,000 over the holidays and celebrated with a IMS upgrade, RMS install and 2nd cat delete.   Ready for 2018!

I just picked up a 2001 Boxter S with 139k on the clock.  Looking forward to having some fun with her.

Boxzilla --

We're both in NNJ. I see that you did an IMS upgrade. Did you do it yourself, or at a shop? Did you do a full replacement, or just certain parts? I don't know much about the history on my car, but I have over 127,000 miles. I am considering doing the IMS.

Purchased my 2003 Boxster S (Tiptronic, Guards Red) new and it's just over 108K at the moment.  Zero problems other than the headlight switch (need a replacement again).  All service performed by dealer or my mechanic.

My 2000 Boxster just turned over 196,000 today. I do all the work on it these days. My advice is to drive it a lot and stay on top of the little things. Last month I replaced the water pump and AC compressor pulley. Last weekend I replaced the drivers side airbag bracket to keep the horn from tooting over bumps. It’s not a maintenance hog though. Most of the time i just get in it and go. I’m the second owner. It has the original engine and IMS bearing.
