    Oil changes ATS 2.0t

    I plan to get the 2.0t hopefully soon. Just wondering how often do current owners change their oil. I've read that owners of BMWs with similar engine change their oil at 3000-5000 miles.

    I think you'll find most people follow the OLM

    I plan on using a OTS synthetic and running it on an OLM run after a 1500 mile change. I'll have it analyzed and see how it performs. I will say that this engine seems to run exceptionally hot, and a giant heat-trap for an engine cover doesn't help. It does have a water oil cooler, so it shouldn't be running crazy oil temps which would warrant such early changes.

    IE, if GM calculates 7K ish OCI's with a synthetic blend, I'm sure a real synthetic will handle it just fine.

    after 1 or 2 Mobil 1 changes I think I'll move onto some Penzoil Ultra or similar.

    I just had my first oil change. Went in when the OLM dropped below 20%.
    I'm just over 4300 miles... almost all of them "spirited" driving.

    your maintenance plan covers the oil changes and basic maintenance for the first 4 years/50K.......fine print states to bring it in for oil change when the OLM is 20% or less......Im at 5300 miles on mine and still at 31% on the OLM....
