hi BaDaMz, after the first oil flush, I was recommended to do a one-time 5,000km oil change before every 10,000km++ milleage oil change.

due to the my ignorant of not to waste the oil since i was switching from Elf SS to FS, i tend to test the oil to its best effort by changing it at 13,000km milleage.

it is due to the last good result on Elf SS where it lasted 8,000km instead of recommended 5,000km for normal SS oil.

it is my 2 cents of test to be done, your milleage may vary (meaning your opinion may be different)

What oil you are using? Frankly I am very impressive with this oil ever since I used it after my 20,000KM milleage service. The stock Castrol not as good as this from a few perspective:

1. The engine get heat and cold faster (meaning during ignition and off)
2. I feel less noise during morning ignition
3. The car pickup has improved and less vibration during idle mode

That was the experiences I had before I install HPIS EMS 400 and grounding kit. If we can recall 20,000KM service has replaced new spark plugs, so maybe the new SP also play a good role in my comments.

You should really try it, if interested, can PM me for stocks.
