i have had my is250c for 6 months now and just called Parramatta
to ask if they think it’s worth changing the oil more often than the scheduled 12 months, they said we can
if you like, price for oil and filter change around $360-380!!!!!!!



the car had 12000 km on it when i purchased it and i have
only put 5500k on it in 6 months but im use to doing my oils every 6 months,
any advice on this is welcome, i have not had a looked under the car but I’m i
guessing it can't be hard to drop the
oil myself? and what oil are you guy's running?



cheers

i run elf turbolite

I can not find this oil on the Elf/Total site. Motul make a "turbolite" but it's 10w40?

The Elf Excellium Full-Tech 0W-30 looks quiet good on paper. PAO base stocks (100% Synthetic) rather than Group3 (fully synthetic) too. Be good for 15K

If you really want to be sure, send your used oil to a lab like blackstone to work out what oil change interval is appropriate for the oil you use and your driving pattern.

Interesting.... Have you personally tried this before? Any more info?

I have not personally used it, as I don't drive many kms. Therefore, my oil change is always end up being at around half the recommended distance intervals. There are a few people who post their reports online. The blackstone website has lots of information, including sample reports and what the fields mean.

http://www.blackstone-labs.com/standard-analysis.php

People send engine oil, transmission oil, gear oil and others to test. Some people want to know whether the new panel air filter they put in is letting too much sand through, others want to work out whether they need to change their oil more often due to hard driving / tracking.

Pricing is not bad at $25 USD for a standard test excluding the cost of shipping the sample.

Yes that is part number used in Australia. The JDM part number is 04152-31080

If you're doing your own servicing pop down to your local autobarn & pick yourself up some Motul.
