Read the manual, it states you can use synthetics at anytime, as long as you change the oil and filter at the recommended normal intervals. So no worries, change over when you feel comfortable doing so.

The most important thing you can do is break the car in properly.

This right here is probably the most sound advice to follow. It is your car, so when you feel comfortable is when you should do it.

There is enough hard evidence out there to make an informed decision. There is need to commune with your car, connect with it spiritually, or otherwise rely on feelings.

Now, if bluesubie felt comfortable laying hands on his vehicle and felt that "Now is the time!!1!", at 5600 miles, he'd have made a mistake.
