I've searched high and low and can't seem to find a thread on changing the oil before the 1000mi service. I have about 700 mi and am itching to get the dino oil and debris out of my engine. Is there any reason to wait until the 1000mi service? The car has been broken with "spirited driving" and "brief" bursts to 6500-7000 rpm and mostly up to 80% throttle and some full throttle bursts recently - basically a motoman break-in. Also a lot of cool downs and down shifts - virtually no highway driving. I seem to remember one guy advocating changing the oil several times during the first several hundred mi - with the first change at just 20mi!!! Also, I'd like to choose my oil and you never know what the dealer puts in even when they tell you "yeah we'll use Mobil 1 if you want us too".... right... and monkeys might fly out of my rear... as they fill the car with Quakerstate swill. - john.
