I have changed the oil in my 07 exige to synthetic after 600 miles (have 750 miles now). Anyone see a problem with changing to synthetic early?

Usually manufacturers add a thicker special oil blend for the break in period that helps remove metal bits and such along as the engine settles in. Then after the 1000 mile switch to the synthetic. Follow the schedule in the owners manual that matches your driving style and usage the closest. The manual was written by the people who designed and built your car, they probably have the best advice to offer !

It is not a problem. I had an oil leak on my 05 at 350 miles, and changed it to synthetic then. That engine was super strong and reliable. :sad:
