Well, guess it's time for an oil change. How do you do that :)

Seriously it's looks like it's going to be a lot of fun! Anybody else changing theirs at 500 miles???

Only problem with changing your own oil is that it doesn't show in the maintenance records. Everything is recorded and available to anybody in the future if you want to sell it.

Having complete maintenance records goes a long way in that scenario.
Keep a maintenance journal. Keep track of the date, mileage and what was done (oil used, filters changed, tires rotated, plugs changed, etc.).

You can carry a small spiral notebook in the glove box or do it on the computer.

I do the same thing for my guns, keep track of dates, ammo used (brand, grain, type of bullet or recipe if custom load), how many rounds fired. This helps to know when it's time for a new barrel or other maintenance items, just like mileage on a car.
True, but that won't carry the same weight as consistent maintenance reports logged on CarFax.
