yeah i agree , its your cash, i am not telling you when you have to change  
your oil :o) 
i would think that an oil analysis lab would be able to tell you if your  oil
was going to cause sludging problems. if you want to waste your money  and
oil because it makes you sleep better at night, fine, but don't pretend  it's
based on reality. 3k miles, as brandon said,is silly.

to the OP -  first of all don't buy a car planning to solve sludge problems.
buy a car  that's been meticulously maintained and with a warranty. from what
i know the  b6's were very well sorted out, and did not suffer the sludge
issues that the  b5's had, as they were mostly solved or revealed at the end
of the b5's  tenure. not to mention control arms, abs sensors, airbag issues,
dash  clusters, and about 27 other b5 specific plagues. just make sure when
you get  it you chip it and throw some stasis streetsports on it
straightaway. it'll  feel like it lost 1000lbs. =)

the oil i put in my 98 is filthy within 10  minutes of putting it in the
motor, the car has 160k, 60k with a k04 and  21lbs of boost and me trying to
blow it up every time i drive it, with no  luck. i change the oil, every 7k
or so with m1 0w40, seafoam and techron  pretty regularly. car just made
great compression across all 4, 2 weeks ago  when i changed plugs. ymmv.
