2003 Porsche Boxster Question: Oil Change

 

Question

I have only driven the car, at very slow speed, for about 4,000 miles in the last 2 years. I had it serviced at a Porsche dealer before moving. I moved overseas and brought the car with me and now am wondering if I need to change the oil or can wait for a few more miles. It has about 41,967 miles now and had about 38,000 when I got it. The oil is still very clear.

    If the oil is clean, leave it be. Most Porsche vehicles require a full-synthetic oil and can be run for extended drain intervals.

    thanks. I will leave it alone for a while. The costs to service overseas is three times the us. I plan to ship the car back in about one year and will wait.
