Re: first A4 oil change

My dealership's sales department pays for an oil and filter change at 1000
miles.  They even called me a few weeks after delivery to tell me to come
in and get it done (and didn't try to sell me anything else while I was
waiting #|8-}).   

I asked the service department whether it would be beneficial to do it at
less than 7,500 mile intervals, and he was pretty adamant about it not
making any difference.

I suspect that if there was something special in that first batch of oil,
the service dept would probably not want to do the 1,000 mile change.

Maybe a case of the left hand not knowing what the right hand is doing, but
at least I didn't have to make the decision myself as to whether or not to
change at 1,000 miles !
