    This, haha.

    But as I said before if Toyota thought that it would need an oil change at 1k they would put it as part of the service wouldn't they.

    Tell us what you really think Joel of the donk... I believe Toyota where only dipping their toes in the water with this one. There would be a road map / strategic reason behind it.

    Gone are the days of using running in oil that needs to be changed at 1,000kms. The engine build process and materials now are so refined that it will not create any swarf or breakdown during the run in period. Read your Owners manual for clear instructions on running in.

    The first scheduled service is at 15,000kms or 9 months when the oil and filter is changed. The book specifies 0W20 as the main or 5W30 which are both synthetic NOT mineral.

    Toyota Service Advantage still covers all services up to 60,000kms or 3 years on the 86 and the capped price of $170 inc GST includes the synthetic grade of oil and genuine parts.

    My tip, leave it alone till the car needs it and get the dealer to do it for you. $170 per service is the best value for each service that no one else can match.

    Your only new to this forum buddy, attitudes like this are band pretty quick smart, I'd say if you can't hack some Aussie sarcasm and a dig here and there that's maybe you should head over to nissan Silvia, a lot of Internet warriors over there.

    Here we like to have fun, we all get along, so just take a breath before you decide to post a reply like that again.

    With the 15k service intervals there is a handful of things which assist in extending this out...

    Larger capacity sump, better filtration setup and quality oils.

    Personally I think part of the extended service is people usually don't keep cars until they do 400,000kms anymore, but for the average person who isn't going to keep the car 10 years it wouldn't matter.

    I happened to mention that 15k service intervals seemed long to the salesperson when I picked my car up and they told me that changing the oil/filter yourself mid-interval wouldn't void the warranty.

    Im sure if you decided to use ridiculously thick mineral oil etc that wouldn't work your way though
