What type of oil & how often are you changing?

Just wondering what others are using and how often are you changing?

I'm using Castrol Synthetic 5W-40 and changed at first one thousand miles and will do again at 10,000 miles

I haven't changed the oil in my CLA yet. When I do it will be done by the dealer because I pre-purchased all scheduled maintenance for 5 years so what ever they use I assume will be what MB recommends.

Black CLA250 - Premium, Multimedia, Sport, Panorama roof, Bi-Xenon, Window Tinting (50%/35% Front/Rear), Carlsson C-Tronic.
Bridgestone Blizzak LM-60 RFT (Run Flats) mounted on 18x8 Anzio Turn Bright Silver wheels with TPMS sensors for winter driving.

Tony how much did the 5 year package go for. I'd like to get a 3year plan.

To be honest with you I don't remember but that price is negotiable and I think I got them to cut 15% off the regular price because I agreed to buy other services.

Wow. You have a lot of posts for someone who doesn't even own a CLA yet.

the cool thing is they will be able to roll in to your monthly payment plan. I got a tire and rim protection and 3 year maintenance too.

I think I'm following the manufacturer's recommended intervals.

I just couldn't think about leaving the oil unchanged for 10,000 miles on a new car, I don't care what the Germans recommend. And who know what kind of oil they put in there, I feel better and the engine idles smoother with the Synthetic oil IMO.
