mineral oil as it lets the rings etc bed in.
Can anyone confirm this, sounds right to me.
By the way my car is BA XR8.
That is correct, I changed mine at 8000 to make sure she was ran in right.
And may i suggest you use a thin synthetic oil also. I have just done my first oil change and I used FUCHS TITAN GT1 0w/20 with a purlator oil filter.
and I can tell you that the differance in performance in oil is nothing short of amazing. It really has made the car more responsive and picked up alot more bottom end power. check this web site www.fuchs.com.au/html/passenger_car_engine_oil.html
It is expensive at $88.00 for 4ltrs. But it is the best on the market and if you are like me you won't put a inferiour product into you pride and joy.
Give it a go you will be impressed
