    Lookin' good - gonna keep an eye on it. Looking to buy it at the end of the lease and keep it forever. Next up, the PTU with fluid change to Redline Shockproof. Pretty sure I said it was 5W30, but still, the viscosity is fine. Had to add a quart of Mobil 1 at around 1000 miles, it was on the low mark of the dipstick for some reason.

    Got their sampling pump to make things easier, and be able to pull oil out for a sample after a good commute. Was worried about sampling it when it was basically cold after sitting all night and then moving it about 50 feet to get it near the garage. But water and fuel is perfect. One thing I notice with this 2018 - the exhaust tips aren't getting black in a few hundred miles. Something is keeping oil out of the intake so far ;)

    This was factory fill. Or at least, it still had the factory oil filter on it. Not sure if the dealer changed the oil before I got it - it had been sitting at that dealer for about a year.

    I didn't do my first oil change until the 5k Mile mark and the car had been on the dealers lot for over 12 months. I know, I'm bad. But she doesn't burn a drop and runs like a top.
