My "normal" schedule is to do them every 4K since I drive about 8K a year, but I wanted to get the first one done at a 1,000 or about just after break-in. I'll do the next at 4K and then each 4K after that. Bought ramps instead of using jack stands which I've typically used in the past. I bought the oil from Walmart which seemed to have it cheaper than anywhere else. $26.48 for 5 qts. Our trash pick up folks also pick up used motor oil and filters so that makes it very convenient. The cover under the car is a pia to deal with. I understand from a design perspective why it's toward the front of the car, but that makes accessing the drain plug and filter than much more difficult. In the end though, it's still very easy. The total time including clean up was about 45 minutes.
