I am always amazed by folks who tell you to wait until 12K miles or 18K miles or whatever to do the switch to synthetic when so many vehicles come right from the factory with synthetic oil including all Porsche cars, the new Corvette, all Aston Martin cars, many models of Mercedes Benz, the Cadillac XLR, the Dodge Viper and the new Ford Mustang Cobra-R, just to name a few. The only maker that specifically recommends against synthetic is Mazda for their rotary engine vehicles only, including the RX-8. All that stuff about leaks and rings needing to set is a myth.
