Oil Change and Catch Can
Alright guys, I have read here and multiple other auto forums about when you should perform the very first oil change. The manual says 5K miles. Many around say 1K. What is your consensus?
Also, other than emptying, is there any other maintenance of the catch can that I should be aware of? Thanks in advance.

Re: Oil Change and Catch Can
I think you will get a lot of different opinions on this. I personally changed the factory oil at 1000miles (planned to do it at 500 but couldn't get the filter off so had to wait a week until I had time to get to the dealer for them to break it loose for me). I changed it again at 5K and plan to do every 5 from here on out.

way too low, if you are doing it to get the early engine metals out, at least wait until 750-1000 miles.
