That is why we created the Oil Change package a few years ago for DIY Z owners. Labor rates can be a bit pricey or they will charge you a ridiculous amount for the oil/filter. Dealerships are great, but there is a certain satisfaction KNOWING that your oil is genuine NISSAN BRAND OIL and not some unknown brand oil being pumped out of a 55 gal drum.

There is also a certain satisfaction knowing that you did the job yourself and it was done to YOUR standards.

As far as oil change intervals, the whole 3 mo/3mile is just an old standard which was created way before some of the newer oils we have out today like the Ester or most Synthetics. You should be fine going longer since you do not drive it as much.
