    Question First oil change ?

    I'm getting mixed messages on this topic. I still have less than 600 miles on the car, should I get the first oil change early (around 1000 miles) ? Or am I wasting my money ? I lean towards being safe and getting it done since I will likely be keeping the car for a very long time. Are there other things I should get done before the first scheduled maintenance ? i.e. transmission fluid, etc ? Thanks !!

    @ 1,000mi get an oil change that way you can flush out any particles that might be in the oil from the break-in period.

    1000 K for first change is fine.

    Other fluids will be fine as long as you monitor their levels. If you plan on tracking it, look into some higher performance fluids for the front diff/tranny and rear diff. Even then though, the stock fluids hold up well (based on my own experience).

    Thanks !

    Thanks guys, enough with the nay sayers....I'm getting it done at 1000 miles. I'm not really the racing type, so sounds like the other stuff will be fine.
