Thanks John and Steve for all the info...
I find that FSS interval somewhat ridiculous too, but the dealer keeps saying the interval is the way to follow
BMW's interval are even longer at 20000km.......I will follow ur advice and change oil after I drive it for 7500km
one of the problem is I am not a DIY person, so I might need to find some place to help me change the oil....will the dealer help me change it even if it is not at FSS interval???
as I mentioned before the 15W-50 don't have the "AMERICAN PETROLEUM INSTITUTE for gasoline engines certified" stamp and also missing the "energy conserving" 5w30 lable like the others...what exactly does "energy conserving" means?
