I changed the oil and filter on mine at 2,000K.
As far as running in goes, there are only a couple of points to bear in mind:
- don't slog the engine ( a bit hard to do with an auto anyway)
- vary the engine load and revs
- don't redline it until at least 5,000K
There's an old saying which says that if u run them in hard they go hard, but the bad side of this is often that they don't go for long:(
You'll find that it won't be REALLY run in until you have 10,000 to 12,000 Ks and up until then fuel consumption will be heavier than normal:p
