That being said, I don't see the harm in a break-in oil change to be on the safe side, but I think that regular oil change intervals of anything less than ~7,500 are unnecessary and wasteful.
Well yes, clearly, if it's dark, that means it's doing it's job, it's just a mental, "Ok I changed out the initial engine oil" out thing. Can't explain it.
