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.
