Oil Change Schedule during break-in

Searched through several pages and couldn't find a definate answer. Are you supposed to change your oil in this series?



I hear you that it is best to use dino oil during the breakin then on your final oil change you can use synthetic. Just wasjn't sure of the oil change schedule during break-in. I don't have the manual with me.

It's supposed to be changed at 600mi, but in my opinion, that is waiting too long. I prefer the first oil and filter change within the first 20-30 miles. On my 04, I did the initial oil and filter change at 30.5 miles.
