Well, I actually did want to make friends here, but I won't compromise facts for anybody.
What is in question here, is whether changing you oil at 1000 miles makes a difference in lifespan or performance of the engine. It most certainly does not. I don't care about UOA or what some "oil guy" says. That does nothing to prove the assertion that changing oil at 1000 miles does anything beneficial (I changed mine at 4500 miles).
The rings an cylinder walls are the hardest materials in the engine. No "cause and effect" relationship has ever been established that waiting to change your oil at 5000 miles causes any undue wear to any parts in the engine, especially rings and cylinder walls.
I may be a "newbie" here, but I can already see that it's not a very welcoming place unless you play "fanboy".
Show me some emperical data, with direct cause and effect releationships, and then I may buy into your theory. Just calling me "uneducated" is hardly any way to boulster a debate.
Waiting to start out with a cold engine has more to do with initializing the fuel system, than it has anything to do with lubrication. That is what would cause "hesitation".
BTW the BWM cockpit is nice, but also does nothing to boulster a debating position.
