    Five little hockey sticks.

    In our culture obsessed with absurd excess, the Nissan Micra is my counterculture car of choice.

    The book said to do 1st oil change at 8000 km, is it better to change it so early at 2000 km?

    8k km or 6 months, whichever first.

    (oil loses its chemical properties as the months go by)

    I actually booked an appointment at the dealership and was told to come back when I was closer to 8000km. They said conditioning additives are added at the factory to aid engine break-in.

    Maybe bullshit, but when does a dealership turn down free money I was willing to pay to change the oil?

    maybe. first time i hear of such thing.

    personally, i trust my car manual far more than ill ever trust the average dealer.

    secondly, id rather do my maintenance with an independent local shop, than the dealer.

    In the manual it does say 2,000km break-in.
    And the dealer does say special additives. But they use mobile 1.
    When my engine was replaced there were no special oils used. So that's probably bull.

    They might be referring to engine assembly oil. Which is just oil used while putting the engine together so it's not dry.
