I have almost 1100 miles on my car and am having my 1200 mile service next friday. I am at school during the week so friday is the only time i can take it. Is it alright for that service if it is like 50 miles under 1200? also do you think it is worthwhile getting an oil change also?

I wouldn't be surprised if the 1200 mile service included an oil change anyway.

My service person said 1120 miles was fine so you should be okay. The oil will be changed as part of the 1200 mile service.

Per the service manual I have it says they will change the transmission and differential oil I believe. Does not mention engine oil. I'm going to ask them to give the engine oil change for free. I would recommend doing it.

Most dealers will charge for the oil change if requested at the 1200 mile service.

Don't change the oil till 3-4k. It may sound stupid but due to the way they break in, you are to leave the oil alone so that the engine seats. audi started doing this a few years ago.
