    I changed mine at 1K. At 3K I changed it again, but to Mobil 1 with Mobil 1 filter. This costs me about $50 per oil change and I do it myself. I change at 3K or four months, whichever comes sooner. Throwing a little money away? Eh, like I said, it's pretty cheap insurance.
    for sure but how is it costing you 50 an oil change it costs me like around 20 for oil and 3 or so for the oem filter.

    Mobil 1 runs about $7 a quart, times five is $35 and a Mobil 1 filter is about $12, crush washer is under $1 (call me paranoid for always changing it).

    I don't always buy 5 quarts since the car takes about ~4.2 so my oil change cost is actually more like $45 per change. I realize it isn't a big difference.
