my car is about 4 days old. i plan on changing the oil between 750 and 1000 miles to get any shavings out of there. is that a giid time? at what milage should i switch to synthetic? should i do it then or is that too early? also i have seen the reccomended oil is 5w40... that's what the car comes with... what brand is that? also many people goto 5w30 because 5w40 is hard to find... i checked the online oil bibles numbers for 5w30s (you can do a search for it online) and it says amsoil is number one over mobil 1, which is number 2 by the numbers... it mentioned nothing of 5w40s? why? it did list costrol syntec under a 5w50... anyone tried that? any info would be helpful... also, i saw the link today to steer from mobil one now since it is now not a full sythetic someone head mentioned... is that correct?

Re: about oil changes on a new car (Mr_gimble)

welcome to vwvortex!
Tonnes of stuff on oil will come up if you use the search feature.
and KEEP the factory stuff in there until 5k mi (like the manual suggests).
