Oil after first 1300km

Did my first oil change a month ago, here's how the factory oil looked after 1300km.

Not sure if it's a good idea to delay that first service interval of 600 miles/1000 km.

That's kind of dark for a petrol engine. Looks like the oil in a diesel.

I have 840km and was thinking to go like up to 1200, but i guess i'll have it done in time.

Not an issue. I had to do the same with mine, it was due, but at that time I had a planned trip with it, so I asked the dealership, and they said it wasn't a issue.
It's not like it has to get it done right on the dot as soon as you hit the mark.

Thanks, good to know it's not an issue.

All the posts about oil changes and first service, at least this gives everyone a glimpse of how the factory fill looks past the first recommended interval.

Definitely change your oil or have it done at the 600 mile mark.
