    Welcome...Jersey??? Now im thinking of Hiram's (for those that know it). What color? Go with any options? Just follow the break in procedure the performance parts are coming soon. Just know that most engine mods will require a tune.

    Every 3k? That's a bit much no? Manual says 7, I do it every 6. You're using synthetic. Unless you are using your car in inconsistent weather changes and pushing the car a lot, you should be good at changing every 6 or 7,

    2 dealers have said definitely oil change at first 3k. They claim new recommendations from S of A for all turbos to have oil every three, and service every 6. Even with synthetic I have asked for copy of recommendation from S of A for my own curiosity. will publish when I get it

    Oil change not service. Now there is nothing wrong with changing your oil early though most would agree that 5-6k between oil changes (under normal driving conditions) is a good rule of thumb

    Wasn't sure if it was the Fort Lee in jersey or not (used to live there ask a kid) Just enjoy the car since its a more modern car you dont need anything special like a turbo timer (the Subarus are liquid cooled) just dont go supper hard on the turbo and then stop I would go easy the last minute before a heavy drive.

    The oil change interval should be performed in accordance with the specifications outlined in your owners manual/service booklet that comes with the car.

    I don't know about all of you but when my WRX comes in, oil changes will be between every 3-3.5k. Anybody every think or realize why BMW's, Audi's, and Mercedes all begin to have issues after about 50-65k on them. Their recommended oil changes are between 10-15k. HMMMM, outlandish? Oh and that is when warranty runs out, how convenient. so what that your manual says 6 or 7k. I would not trust it, because its "synthetic oil", come on. Most I would do is 4.5k without a change. But that's me.

    My buddy bought a brand new 2013 wrx hatch. He put 12k on it. he changed his oil at the recommended intervals given by the manual which i believe was 7k. So first 1000 miles, oil change, second was at 8k and then at 12k, BOOM goes the motor. It was an engine failure due to oil issue (exact reason i do not know), and mechanic from Subaru said, oil should have been changed earlier and this could have been avoided. It was confirmed by the head mechanic and another one from a different dealer. Just an FYI.

    There is nothing wrong with earlier oil changes. My firebird went thorough oil pretty quick but I keep up with regular maintenance and I was running strong at 220K when I got my WRX. Though I am surprised with BMW 10k intervals thats seems really high.

    Im interested to know what happened to your friends 13 that would cause it to go that early. I wonder if its was the oil pickup.

    Factory sheet shows 6K for service, and new bulletin shows 3k for oil changes. Service dept says high heat and fuel degradation, along with checking oil levels regularly. I do not buy the pitch of using synthetics to extend oil change intervals. Oil and filters are cheap -turbos and engines are not. Manufacturers pay fees to EPA, etc depending on frequency schedule of petroleums they require, the longer the interval, the less their cost. This info comes from a BMW factory guru, off the record.
    When I used to race stock cars and bikes I would change oil/filter after a day of racing. On wet clutches, the clutch lives in the engine oil. Etc Etc.
    The more you know the better it gets. Build a good relationship with your servicing people if you don't do all your own work.
    Enjoy.
