That's what my dealer told me to do as well, but i have been driving the car like i stole it (doing the hard break-in) going to take it easy on it now though...drive train needs some time to settle in as well as the breaks...

hahahahahhahaha ok? Have you ever thought about picking up your owner's manual? I'm sure you had lots of metal pieces drain out with your 250 mile oil.

Tell me... when has it EVER been good to put so much strain on a brand new engine?

Do a bit of research on the subject and you will see that there are many ways to do a break-in period, i choose the "harder" one...

To each his own.

My first oil change will be done at my dealer as part of a 45 day checkup. Everything on their dime... oil, filter and once over including computer check. I too understand the importance of driving hard enough to seat the rings. Just trying to drive that fine line between breakin and abuse. 1000 miles now and this thing really turned on around the 300 mile mark.

On a brand new Engine... you want to change the oil early... 300-600 miles on it depending how hard you drive it... then again about 1400 - 1600... again depending how hard you drive it.

Well said - seems to me your name is on the payment book!
8 quarts - wasn't expecting that one!

I'm getting mine changed next week. I'm up to about 900 miles now, and I've been driving my car real hard and its been on a dyno.

But when I took my 06 GTO in for an oil change with about 700 mile on it, the service manager thought I was crazy. Even even said, we'll change your oil if you like spending money, but you don't need to get it done yet. I told him to just go ahead and change the oil. He doesn't know how I drive.

It isnt going to kill you if you miss the first 300-600 oil change. Although any oil change is a good one, and decreasing your potential risk is always not a bad idea.

you can go about 1500mi without any significant difference, at least from what i've learned from this forum and other sources...
