change oil now!!!!


Expect the best, and accept no substitute.

Products for your Boxster, Cayman and Carrera.
This has probably been asked many times before, but I haven't been here for a while. In order to save a few bucks, I went to a local "high end" shop for an oil change on my 2015 Boxster S. I just assumed he knew how to turn the warning caveat off. You know what happens when you assume!! Searched on the internet and now I'm here!! Anyone know how to turn that "CHANGE OIL NOW" warning off without going to another high priced shop??
... a PIWIS, Durametric or other Porsche-specific tool.
There are no tricks for the end-user.
Happy Boxstering,
Pedro

Pedro,

What are the other 981 regular maintenance tasks that require a Porsche specific PWIS or Durametric tool to accomplish? For example, break fluid flushing, spark plug replacement, etc.
... mostly diagnostic tools.
Most, if not all of the service requirements can be performed without them, but the service lights can’t be reset without them.
Happy Boxstering
