So im currently down in England and due to drive back to Scotland on Friday which will take me to my first 1000 in my car. I've been speaking to a mate of mine who's got an RS and he's said I should get an oil change just after 1000 to get rid of any engine swarf left over from manufacturing and that it'll give me increased performance, any truth in this? :) its a fiesta ST3 I've got and it's the first time I've had a brand new/performance car lol :)

I could see the reason behind it but surly ford would have deep cleaned all parts of the engine and ancillaries before installing them it would make sense to, but i would say an oil change at any point is a good thing anyway i try to do mine every 4-6 between services

I would imagine that he means from the bedding in of components

Can't hurt to do one anyway, even if it is only for peace of mind
(Or an excuse to do something oily)
