At home on Saturday: 2 wrench person
I purchased Wayne's 101 Project book.
Just drained the antifreeze with Wayne's pictures showing the right hoses to disconnect. 1 drain plug and 4 hoses.
Next will be the fuel filter and the 5 speed transmission fluid & new spark plugs. Love the book. Oil changes are a breeze, can't imagine going to a dealer for these items. Biggest effort is setting up the jack stands & ramps and for the Boxster to be level. Bruce

Only a bovine, clodpated, citified moron would miss buying this book
This book would be a bargain at twice the price. I'm a lifetime gear-head but new to Porsches and the Boxster. The online articles are only a teaser to how good this book is. Having it in my lap in the car, as I hooked up the wiring for the Onboard Computer upgrade made it worth the price alone.

The only downside to buying this book is the possibilities that it opens up. It's obvious that Wayne is a rabid enthusiast and did an exceptional job at putting this book together. Buy it, you won't be sorry.

Great source for DIY-ers
This book has helped me complete some jobs myself, like servicing the Boxster's tiptronic tranny and replacing the trunk's shocks and hoods'.

It has paid for itself and more.

A must-have book for a Boxster Owner
The book "101 Projects for Your Porsche Boxster" by Wayne is a killer. I wish every car manual is like that with big COLORED pictures and comprehensive, easy to read and understand step by step procedures. Even my wife who can't work on and don't know much about cars can do the job with this book. I bought my first Porsche Boxster a couple of months ago and I'm reading the book page to page to get myself familiarized with the car and the necessary maintenance and upgrades. I'm the kind of guy who wants to know HOW a thing works so I know how I can work on it or fix it when something goes wrong. I love it and I can't thank you enough for such a wonderful and helpful tool to get my Boxster going. I am an Aeronautical engineer and worked on jet engines when I first came here to the US. But nothing beats working on a car. I'm not an expert and I'm just like the average garage mechanic but with a book like Wayne's I can never go wrong. I can definitely use the book every bit of it to work on upgrades and upkeep to my Boxster. My son and I have a lists of projects for my Boxster and his BMW and knowing what to do will save me money from having it done at the dealer or an independent shop. That saved money can be used for another project. :-

Like one guy said, if you own a Boxster, you definitely need to have this book. I'm so glad I do.

Also, I'd like to thank Wayne and his crew/staff for always taking the time to follow up through email. That makes me feel I'm not just a number especially when the CEO of the company Wayne sends me personal notes of thanks. Can't get that from other shops and vendors, even in the aerospace industry I'm in.

Thanks and keep up the good work!

Excellent Book
Easy to follow with colorful pictures and arrows to pinpoint the parts. Even a senior citizen like me can do any project in this book!

Great starter book for a new Boxster owner
The book shows how to complete various maintenance and upgrade tasks with the Boxster; I was particularly happy with the chapters on basic maintenance (brakes, oil change). Many of the chapters contain lots of pictures to help the reader visualize the procedures being described. The instructions and pictures are great for those of us that are not-so-mechanically-inclined. Many of the pictures even have arrows pointing the specific components, which was very valuable. No complaints about the content, the book covers very easy projects through very complex tasks. However, I will question the layout of the chapters which has "how to wash your car" immediately followed by "engine rebuild"... :-)

The Car Manufacturers could learn how to put together a manual from this one.
I recently purchased a 2008 Cayman S and was looking for servicing info/parts when I came across this. I love this manual! I have been a dealership technician for more than 30 years working on some high line brands and found this to be one of the best manuals I have come across.
The photos are of good quality and the text is easy to understand.

A great investment for any Boxster owner
A very helpful guide to many DIY projects for your Boxster. Will easily pay for itself with what you can save by using this reference and doing just about any of the projects yourself.

Your company is on the ball and you do what you do what you say you will do.

Boxster book
TooGreat Book! IWill Probably Only Use A Small Percentage Of The Information, But A Back Yard Mechanic Would Use It All.....Still Good For Just General Information. If You Own A Boxster, You Should Own This Book, Too

Nice DIY Manual
Excellent introduction to Boxster maintenance. Clear concise text and plenty of pics. Sort of a "Dummies" manual, without the self deprecating undertone.

Wayne's World, er....Wayne's Boxster Book
Would give 6 stars out of 5 if possible. Even if you NEVER do one of these projects, the information alone in this book is sooo valuable and could save you money with your local dealer or independent repair shop since you will have a much better understanding of what's involved with these repairs/projects. AWESOME!

A must have for Boxster owners
I am a newbie to the Porsche world, and although I've restored hot rods and rebuilt transmissions before, I was very hesitant to dive into my Boxster's engine compartment. With this books tips and and photo's it has given me a little confidence to do some of my own work and save a little cash. Well done Wayne, and thank you!

Outstanding Book!
I'm a hobby mechanic. I do things such as oil changes, plugs, etc just because I enjoy working on my own cars. This book made it easy to tackle some of the harder jobs, not only because I like to do the work myself, but also to save money! From the jacking up project to the convertible top replacement project, I've done so much to my '99 Boxster! The convertible top replacement alone saved me $700! Well worth the cost for anyone that enjoys working on their own cars, or looking to save some money.

Already paid for itself!
I used Wayne's book to guide me through a headlight switch replacement. Easy instructions to follow and all without a visit to my local Porsche garage - saved me at least $100. Thanks Wayne!

One of the most powerful tools in the box
Even if you don't wanna wrench on your Porsche yourself, this book will help you understand what it takes to do the work so that you can speak intelligently to your auto care provider/service writer/technician. If you love owning and driving a Boxster, you may find this book to be as important to own as the Boxster owners manual.

Outstanding!
What a book! Very well written, with plenty of details, hints, tips technical explanations, pictures... Just what I had been looking for. I am not a DIY person, but now at least I can get some understanding of what can go wrong, but more importantly how a problem can be fixed, how labor intensive it is, how much it costs,... before I start listening to my Porsche mechanic stories... Simply brilliant!
