Early oil change?

I have almost 1500 miles on my Compass now. I generally change the oil at 3500 miles but was thinking of doing a change in the middle at 1500 miles simply because more metal filings as well as pre-lubes and what-not used during the manufacturing process should all have dumped out in to my oil pan. This is my first new car and I am hoping to get 10+ years 200k+ miles out of her...

Re: Early oil change?

Can't to any harm.
I installed a cool thing on my TR6 a few year back, a magnetic oil pan plug.
You would not believe it, but even on a car thirty-three years old, bits of metal can yet be found on the plug.
