VW UP GTI
I was thinking of getting the oil & filter changed around 1000mls. Did you guys get it done at the main dealer or independent. Maybe this depends on whether your keeping the car long term.
My thoughts were firstly that in the first 1000mls there maybe some detritus built up from a new engine and the running in process. The second thought was that VW (so I believe) use a very thin grade of oil from new.If I remember rightly, there is no need to go to a dealer for oil change at 1000 miles. Probably not really needed at all, but if you like the idea of fresh oil/filter, go to an independent, but be sure to get good-enough oil.
