Just curious, how often do you guys change your oil, i heard from many people that you dont have to do it every 3k cause it being synthetic. Any opinions?

Twice a year.
That's about every 5,000 miles.

Wait till your car tells you too.

Your car has a built in amount of revs it stores and once you use all those revs it will tell you to change your oil. If you do it any more than that your just doing it to do it.

I go once every three months or 3000 miles

Dirt still builds up in oil, synthetic or not.

I change mine more often than you use the search function. Here's yet another thread that will be beaten into the ground.

i change mine every 5k...it still never really looks all that dirty but i do all local driving and stop and go...highway miles are better than local, i always let the car warm up too for at least 2-3 mins before driving...it only takes me 10 mins to get to work, that's more harsher driving conditions believe it or not

i do it ever 5k.

i had a brake flush done at 24,500

i hooked up the pressure bleeder up to my clutch as well.

PITA to get at!

if you remove your intake tube you can see in enough to bleed it.

the brakes and clutch fell a ton more crisp after

take it to the dealer if you can't do it!! 47k miles!! if your engine goes and you have no receipts backing up that you change your oil, you're screwed!!

i think the oil filter is located in the front of the car, how to explain it, near the intake pipe...some say they remove the cai to get to it easier...i take it to a 10 min oil change place, i can see through the window, cost me 47$ last time, mobil 1...

change that shit quick before you have a real problem on your hands...

And Yes! I can be a funny ******* sometimes!!! I always get mine done between 3000 & 4500 miles, and the dealer always dose it for me. I'm lazy, and for $50.00 I can't complane.
