First Oil Change Done.

Well 810 miles so I took the plunge and changed the oil. $87.00 smakers. I did notice it lowered the valve chatter I did have.

Time to hammer it Scott...

Next item to change: rear tires. It's amazing how fast they go bald.

What is the thinking in getting an oil change so early?

I changed mine up at 350 miles and screened the oil. It was pretty clean but burned off a 1/2 quart. Mobil 1 is great but you will need to add oil quickly after a change due to the amount of detergents in it. I am going to do two more changes with mobile 1 then going Royal Purple baby! How are you doing Scott? Is it all that you expected?

She is plenty quick, kind of bumming that it will not break the tires loose with out power braking it. Talked to GM about it and the designed the car to grab and go not sit there and spin. They said if I want to spine them with the auto go buy some cheaper tires.

Changed my oil at 500 miles. Yes, they are supposed to be prerun at the factory, but you never know. I will change mine again at 1500 miles then go to a regular schedule. Sticking with Mobile 1 as I use it in all my vehicle even my 1998 Harley Evo and my 2001 Toyota truck . My Harley has 132,000 miles on it and the Toyota Truck has 230,000 miles on it, so Mobile 1 must be doing something right!
