So you get a complete oil change in about 6000 km's. Stop changing oil and just change the filter every 10,000 km's. Use any decent SM/CF oil you can find. With such frequent oil topoffs, the oil will not get into a soot-loading problem.

I change it every 7500 km's but recently added a bypass filter setup, so going to go around 15K between changes.
