    Oil and filter Change ?????

    My 888 has done 2000 miles since i got it. I was wondering what with the car being garaged alot just lately should i get an oil and filter change. Ive been recomended to do this by my mate who owns an Evo. He has it done every 1000. But this is all new to me, is it the oil changed along with the oil filter and the fuel filter changin as well.

    Is that what has to be changed?

    Can someone please confirm this, sorry if this seems a stupid question, this is my first car so i am learning all the time :P


    Thanks

    every 6000 miles, new lot of fully synth and a new filter is more than adequate, even when this engine is tuned - IMO.

    I only did my Pulsar at 3000 - your mates EVO at every 1000 is alittle OTT IMO ! :|

    I concur with LN - every 6K is more than adequate - especially as you don't drive the car much.

    Sometimes a full flush can be done - with turbo additives - but this will usually be done with your service.

    I'd say every 6000miles or If you don't drive it that much then maybe every 6months
