Hello!!

Got a new '09 911 S with 2,300 mi on the odometer.

I want to do an oil and filter change after the first 3,500 mi. Just because it makes sense to me to get rid of circulating oil that has break-in debris floating around.

Not trying to out-engineer Stutgart......but....plan to keep this car for a long while.

Any reason not to??

BTW, wasting $125.00 to make me feel good is not a waste to me when it concerns this car.

Thanks!

It's your nickel, but are you planning on changing tranny oil , after all they have to break in as well.

No reason not to IMO. Especially if you'll sleep better.

I waited to 5k, and admit to feeling like I should have done it sooner. I'd add the LN Engineering magnetic drain plug and subscribe to his oil testing program for piece of mind.

Engine and tranny are two different beasts entirely. I'd do the engine (lots of moving parts with tight tolerances where metal shavings can scratch and score. I'd hold on the tranny (big heavey gears with much looser tolerances).

dadbeh,

You are 100% correct re transmission v. engine oil change. About 20 X as many parts. Airplanes and boats are treated the same. Just about 4000 mi now and will change engine oil and filter tomorrow.

Keep it out of the trees! :drive:

I lease my car. Dealer told me 10,000 miles or 1 year, whichever comes first. Should I care? It's a lease.
