I got my oil changed the first time at 2100 miles, when the light came on, and swapped it will mobil 1 synthetic. Which i later asked my dealer about and he said theres no issue with that. Im going to change my oil every 4500 miles with M1.

As for the DIY, it comes down to the dealership, some say yes, some say no. Its also been said on here plenty of times that others dealers have said its fine too.

After break in? I didnt notice much difference. Im at 10,5xx miles now and get maybe 1-2 mpg more but cant tell you for sure because i rarely keep track and i dont always have the same driving habits, route, ect. So im the last person to ask about mpg, performance maybe a little better also. But then again, i have 22s and a better exhaust, which i dont expect to change anything too much.


Overall, id pick a quality oil and filter. And change it regularly, unless its extended interval with i wouldnt go with anyway because the manual says every 7,500 miles or when the light comes on, which ever comea first.


Good luck!!!
