Well its somewhat individual preference. IMO you should not go beyond the severe service recommendation as few of us don't fall into that slot. I change mine in DEC for the Winter and again in the early spring even if I don't have the miles (4-5k Kilometers). Through the summer as required. The typically non millage recommendation is every 6 months max if you don't have the distance on it.
Its cheap insurance. the onboard indicator is suppose to calculate based on many factors when to change it. If early do it if its still no come on and you're past 5000km I'd shedule a change soon and before 6000k. Winter is by far the hardest on the engine and oil and you want fresh in the engine for it and get it out after the winter ends.
