JMHO, but I have no problem with the FSS service interval.
That said, there is a decent amount of break-in during the first couple thousand miles. I'm still old-school enough to think that it's worth changing it out to get rid of it.
Thus, were it my car, I would change the oil and filter someplace in the 3k-4k range, and then follow the FSS thereafter, but even at that I'd follow a time interval and change it at least once a year even if the mileage interval hadn't passed.
Take care and enjoy the sweeeeet new ride,
