Default My First Maintenenace @ dealership

My 2006 987 just turned out 15k miles, so It's time to visit the Porsche dealership. I made the appointment. The service advisor told me that the following needs to be done:
1-15k maintenance @$330.00.
2-Brake fluid & Coolant [email protected]$265.00
3-Air & AC filter replacement @$600.00
4-Wheel balance & Front end alignment @$205.00

Total is $1,400.00

My mechanics knowledge & skills are above average & don't mind doing it. Don't mind dealer performing#1 & brake fluid flush 'cause don't like dealing with brake fluid/ bleeding. Is it OK for me to perform coolant flush & item#3 & have #4 done by my tires/alignment guy? Will it void warranty?

Thanks

My 2006 Boxster S just hit about 28500 miles. I took my car to a lic. auto shop who service BMW and Porsche only, this shop was recommend by our local Porsche club.
Here is what I did and what the shop owner recommended, he own a 911 turbo and other Porsche. So, he know about Porsche.
At 10,300 miles oil change & hook up the car to the machine and check code- $240
At 16,628 miles, oil change & air filter change. $381. Check break, still get 1/2.
My next oil change suppose to be at 25k miles, but I skip that because I was busy.
Then the next one should be at 30K, I have 28500 miles now, so I need to do it soon.This time, it will be oil change, spark plug, air filter, check code, etc.
Not sure how much will cost. May be around $500.
According to him, as long as he keep up with the maintenance and stamp the book, Porsche will not void the warranty, I just took his word for it. I am planning to use him as not as not something that cover warranty, anything under warranty, I took it back to the shop.

Very helpful info. So me performing some of this maintenance on my own, while under warranty, can void warranty.Does the shop/stamp needs to bePorsche approved?

Even though I've owned several german cars(VW & AUDI), this is my first Porsche.Never thought dealer prices for maintenance wereso much higher.

I think I will take your mechanic's advice, and for now just have the dealer perform basic maintenance.
I hate to be overcharged!! [:@]

Gracias Amigo
