Hey all,
when I purchased the car in 2014, I was told service interval was 6 months / 6000kms. nothing mentioned at first or second service, but at the third today, they mentioned for the Turbo's it should be 3 months or 5000 kms. I looked at the service indicator thing and it does now indicate 4999kms / 91 days until next service, and it had previously been saying it was overdue by about 15 days (yeah, I was a little out on the last service), I'm wondering if this is a new thing, and also if perhaps they had gone in and changed the service interval read-out, as I'm positive it used to say 6000kms and the day equiv of six months.

No big deal, but just curious if it's always been this, and no-one bothered to tell me at the dealership.

From what I understand we are supposed to change it every 3k miles. Not sure how many kms that is though lol.

I change mine every 3k miles and rotate my tires every 6k miles. Been using Shell Rotela t6 lately and it is running amazing since the chance.

I rotate and clean my throttle body, catch cans, air filter. I am switching from Rotella to penzoil ultra platinum. I found out that under hard driving like what I do it can foam so I am changing to be safe

The owners manual from my 2014 says every 3000 miles or 5000 km for severe conditions. When you look what they consider severe conditions it is almost everything lol

I consider everyday driving severe for us lol. I highly doubt that we all take it easy on our cars.
