    My Mercedes is 20,000Klm so 12,500 Miles and it has 250,000K on it and doesn't burn oil so it must work.

    Modern oils are pretty amazing.

    I'd follow what Lexus say.

    Same here. Better to follow official word than risking it on an immediate change.

    For me, it's better to change the oil earlier to keep it more stable. Change the oil when you hit around 7,000 miles, it's better to preserve a good running engine to avoid future troubles. :)
