This subject comes up all the time. I would at least wait a few thousand miles. I had my first oil change done around 1200 and will get the next one done at 3k, probably next week, with regular oil. Then at the next oil change, 6k, I will switch to Mobil 1.
why is everyone in a quandry over synthetic, porche , audi, bmw, corvettes all come with it in the car from the factory, years ago we used a conventional oil because machineing tolerances were far from what they can produce today, I ve had mobil 1 in since 1000 miles, only reason it wasent in sooner ,why throw away new oil, :wink:
Just changed to Mobil 1 yesterday at 5000km along with the proper filter (with the Jap. writing on it). Engine reved freely with greater ease immediatly. Power may even be a bit better or perhaps that is just placebo talking. One thing for sure is that my warm idle is much smoother. With stock oil car would idle at 400-450 with the occasional sputter which could easly be felt with the stereo cranked. Post mobil 1, warm idle is at exactly 500, sounds consistent as purrs like a kitten (or should a say a tiger in kittens clothing). So far (its only been 2 days) I give two big thumbs up to Mobil 1.
MYTH: You should break in your engine with conventional oil, then switch to Mobil 1.
FACT: You can start using Mobil 1 with SuperSyn™ in new vehicles at any time, even in brand-new vehicles. In fact, Mobil 1 with SuperSyn™ is original equipment (it is installed at the factory) in:
All Porsche vehicles
Mercedes-Benz AMG vehicles
Ford Mustang Cobra R
All Aston Martin cars
One of the myths that persists about Mobil 1 is that new engines require a break-in period with conventional oil. Current engine manufacturing technology does not require this break-in period. As indicated by the decisions of the engineers who design these high-performance cars, Mobil 1 with SuperSyn™ can be used in an engine from the day you drive the car off the showroom floor.
