    Mileage for First Oil Change

    Just a quick question. I thought I heard somewhere on here to perform the first oil change at 1000 miles. Is that advisable? Thanks

    1st oil change after break in, so 1000mi. You want to flush out all of the crap that got built up during break in. then again at 3,000mi and every 3k after.

    Thanks guys. WRXceleration, you bring up a good point. The gentlemen at the dealer said to wait until 10K until I switch to synthetic. Anyone agree or disagree?

    Okay, y'all can ignore that last question. It seems that topic has been beat to death in the past, and after reading numerous posts I've no idea when to make the switch. Guess, I'll just keep reading. Thanks again.
