On the internet, everyone is an expert. I’ve seen people on this and other forums recommend 10K, 7.5K, 5K and even 3K oil changes, but without analysis of the oil who is to say if the oil is done or not?
Why listen to the "experts"? Have your oil analyzed at 7.5K and see what the lab says. If you want to really nail it, have the sample sent to 2 different labs. I will take the words of two different used oil analysis labs over the "experts" any day.

Check out the used oil analysis (UOA) topics. A wealth of information.
