Default Break in oil (factory fill) or routing change?

If you are on break in (factory fill) oil, YES change the oil now and switch over to synthetic if you can afford it. Mobil 1 synthetic is fine, while not the absolute best synthetic, it's perfectly good. Mobil 1 Extended Performance is just a tad more robust. But use a good oil filter (avoid FRAMS) Mobil 1 filter, K&N filter or Amsoil oil filter.
Oil is not the place to pinch pennies on any personal expense item - anywhere.
