Oil change right after break-in period

Anybody who plans to keep his new F56 going for first oil change earlier than scheduled - just after say 3-5k km?

I have done it with my R class turbodiesel - not that expensive - but seemingly the best anyone can do for extended turbo engine life span - has anyone an opinion on this to share please?

One school of thought says with new engine manufacturing tolerances so precise nowadays and oil quality much improved it is not needed anymore - but still Mini suggests 2.000 Km break-in period - suggesting some metal chips might be around after it....so is the earlier oil change not needed at all or good precaution measure worth carrying out?

I've just ordered Dunlop SP Wintersport 4Ds as 205/45 17s.
Those sound about as good as winters get. Tests I've seen suggest that Dunlop winters are up there with Conti for good dry and wet road grip.

All winters are brilliant in snow and most laugh at ice, so it's really how well they work the rest of the time that sets the best winters apart.
