The sticker usually depends on the type of oil they put in, most quick change places that use conventional, will put 3K on the sticker. If they put in full synthetic it will say 7.5K. I still think the oil life monitor is the best way to keep up with oil changes for the '13+ models. The older models will let it go for longer.Use the Oil Life Monitor. The quick lube places will have you coming back every 3k and that's a total waste of money! Most have found the OLM to be fairly accurate if you have a 2013 or later.
A decent full syn oil will easily go over 5k in the 1.4T. I sent a couple of samples to Blackstone at 8-9k, and they all came back within specified viscocity and enough TBN to go further (I have a 100 mile daily commute, so I have very few short trips on my oil). I've only ever used M1 0W30 over its 110k mile life. Also always used genuine Hengst (ACDelco) filters at each OCI. Engine has never consumed any measurable amount of oil either. Just recently had the cam cover off due to a leak, and the valve train is spotless. Shorter OCI for me is just wasting money and time.Don't believe the 'hype' of extended oil life. Don't believe the OLM either! Just send a sample of oil run in a turbo engine beyond 5k and see how 'great' that oil still is (or isn't). Oil is still 'relatively cheap' vs. full turbo failures, engine failures, etc. Also, just because oil may last longer, most paper filters will NOT....how many are changing filters regularly even when not changing oil for 7,500 to 10k?
