Since it drained like coffee, this week you should do another. You want to flush all the assembly lube goop out of the motor. At under 1000 miles I want to hear that it came out like clean looking oil.

This is what we call breaking in the engine.

I figured as much. Normally, my used oil looks like coffee that'* been sitting on the bottom of the pot all day. This looked almost drinkable, with enough cream and sugar.

But okay, new oil in a thousand miles, coming up. (I don't plan on driving nearly as much this week as I did last week.)

Thanks! If only you could see them through my wheels.

They feel great, though.
