Post Time for an oil change

Well, the new(ish) car has about 1100 miles on it and I'm pretty bored. Guess I'll go get the oil changed.

Bleh, forget about that oil change. I just got a bad feeling when I went inside the oil change place. I just didn't want to trust the car with them. Am I paranoid? Well, it's only about a month until the car is due for its 3 month or 3000 mile oil change, so I'll just wait and take it to the dealer.

Did you have the 1st oil change done yet from the 'break-in' oil?

I believe in the manual it states there should be one done after the 1st 500 or 1000 miles or something like that.

I changed my oil first at 500 and then again at 1500 and both times especially the first it was jet black. You definitely need to do one asap to get the metal dust and filings that chip of the inside of the block out of the motor. I did my last one at 3000.

This isn't law or anything just my personal recommendation.
