Oil Change?

I picked up my new 06 GTO on sat 10-06-07.....less than 100 miles on it.....should i get the oil changed because it sat on the dealers lot for 2 years or is mobil 1 good enough to let it go for awhile?

2006 Spice Red 2006 bought new 10-07.
First car was a real 1969 Camaro Z/28 Plate was REALZ
1997 Pontiac Trans Am Modded Plate was 156MPH
1998 Cadillac Deville Modded Norstar Plate Pursuit

I would change it just for sanity...Who knows if the dealer changed the oil and 2 years a bit much. Be sure the oil change place knows how to re-set the computer so you are notified when the next change is due.

Have Fun

You should save that oil in a bottle. It might be worth something years from now, especially if you say it was from the last SAP GTO sold new from a dealership. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

































Back me up un this, Judge.

Don't let anyone touch it...

...change it yourself. That way you know it was done properly.

Pearl Jam is right.

If you have the original used oil that was installed new at factory from the LAST SAP intalled on a GTO, You have got a gold mine there. I know if I had the last one with used oil I would ask a minimum 25K for the oil, and another 10K for the dirty filter. Add that to the 90K I want for my SAP....Barrett Jackson would be proud.
