Has to do with the possibility metal particles in oil during break in period, therefore it's recommended a quick oil change at 1000 mi., then back on normal schedule.

Who recommends it?

Did my first oil change at 925 miles today. I couldn't wait any longer so I broke down and did it today. Then I took it out for a drive and explored the upper part of the tach for the first time.

:happyanim::happyanim::happyanim::happyanim:

Edit: I was NOT expecting the oil to drain as fast as it did (never used 0W-20 before) and I ended up dropping the drain plug into the drain pan. The oil was hot so I had to use tongs to fish for it.

Edit again: Yes, there were visible metal bits in there. Felt much smoother afterwards.

Drove it 122mph today for the first time. (still made some weird rubber burning smell, it's at 3K miles, but I guess it's still breaking in)? :iono:

I picked up my FR-S just over a week ago. So far I have washed, clay barred, waxed, and detailed (I took delivery with the plastic still on the car). Removed the DRL resistor (module?), adjusted the clutch pedal, repaired 2 fuel lines that had been chewed on by a small rodent, and racked up about 1400 KMs ~ 850 miles.

Today? Removed the spare tire, jack, tow hook, etc from the trunk, and the hood blanket. Went for a 100 mile drive around the "island".

Stared at it, drove it, tinting it tomorrow, and about to wash it. True Story.
