Doesn't the oil drain plug have a magnet on the end of it already?
I agree with changing out the first oil before 1000km (600 miles).
I only bought one new car before, a 6.1L Hemi and I changed the oil at 500km and 1500 km and then normal intervals.
When my truck arrives (in February) I'll change the break in oil at 800km or so and then normal intervals.
