A little pain early on is better than than a lot of pain from stuck or broken bolts later on. I keep my cars for a long time and I do my own work once the warranty expires, so I try to make it easy on myself.

2. Check ALL fluid levels.

3. Check tire pressures.

4. Remove the wheels. Wash, dry, and wax them inside and out.

5. Remove any screws or bolts holding the brake rotor to the hub, apply anti-seize, and reinstall.

6. Apply anti-seize to the lugs, install the wheels, and torque them to spec.

7. Remove spark plugs, apply anti-seize to the threads, apply SMALL amount of dielectric grease to the insulators, and reinstall.

8. Hard wire my radar detector.

9. Spray the upholstery with Scotchguard or similar.

10. Install any "dealer accessories" like self dimming mirrors, floormats, trunk mats, etc.

11. Wash and wax the car if the build date indicates the car is more than six weeks old. If it is newer than that, I wait for a month or so for the paint to cure.

Then, I drive and enjoy the car.

At 500 miles, I change the oil and filter.

At 1000 miles, I change the oil and filter.

After that, I change the oil and filter every 2,500-3,000 miles.
Do you want to come do this to mine?
