Oil chnage interval is about 6000m.

Will: why not do a uoa, as you might be able to extend drain intervals 2-3000 miles with a filter change in between ?
I did a UOA with 8k miles on the oil and filter. No problems found, but changed anyway. All below normal levels, including copper, which surprised me.
