I'd say run the car for a 1000 km before changing to a different oil. Chances are the wear metal content added to the circ. engine lil during that first 1000 km will be higher than average, so if you MUST change engine oil.....maybe then would be your best idea.

I've used Royal Purple for years in other cars with no issues (along with other brands too). Honestly....use whatever floats your boat I guess (actually, I'm using Castrol Syntec Blend in my Koup).

And don't fall for manufacturer hype.

Make a spin on the BITOG forums as well....lots of info there on oil choices and change intervals for new cars.
