Do-it-Yourself
Modern, water cooled Porsches are extremely easy to work on by yourself, if you have the right tools and information.  
There have been stories about Dealer Salespeople telling their new potential customers that  “you have to drop the engine to change the oil”, or that  “you have to remove the soft convertible top to access the engine”.  
These actual statements couldn’t be farther from the truth.  
Following, I will document maintenance, repair and “hacking” DIY projects that you can undertake yourself.  
I have, and so have many others.
Happy Boxstering,
                 Pedro
