Default synthetic oil

I switched my 99 S80 to synthetic oil when I bought it with about 35,000 miles on and my 99 S70AWD was switched with about 40,000 miles. WHen can I switch my 2006 S*) AWD, it currently has 2600 miles. The dealer said not until about 15,000 miles after the breakin...

I disagree TECH. Many new autos (Corvette, BMW) come with synthetic from the factory. I put synthetic in my c70 when it had about 2,000 miles and same for a new Mazda that my wife operates. In fact, I replaced the "factory" oil with synthetic in at least the last ten new autos that I have purchased.

There was a reason Behind what I said. He didn't specify if he had Free Factory Maintance.
If he has it then he Has to go buy the Dealers word or Pay the eXtra $$$.

Thats why I said that.

If it were mine I would have changed it already to.

But thats one good and bad thing about me sometimes. I do stuff like this to try to prove a point.

Sometimes all the info isn't given upfront and I short answer to get more info. Then we can solve the problem or help out our best that way.

ok more info, the first oil change will be free, thats at about 7500 I was told, since I have 2500 now. So I gues the way to go will be to let them do the fre one, then change after that? THANKS,
