You can change your oil ever 500 miles but that is not going to make it run any better or last any longer than if you changed it every 5,000 miles.
There is a very good chance the oil you are removing is better even with 5,000 miles on it than the oil you are replacing it with.
I agree. The filter is there for a reason. Let it do it's job. My dealer and mechanic both said you are wasting money changing it so soon.
