    Annually, which means about eight or nine thousand miles.

    I'm not sure that the voting options have been thought out well enough, though I can't give a better set of options! What I mean is, my 4K miles a year means I can say I only think once a year is okay, while also being every 4K miles.

    On that score, I was at a car classic/vintage rally today and there was a model T Ford that typically gets used for 4K miles a year!

    Good call. I'd think 'Every 5-10k' and 'Once a year' are the same answer for most.

    This isn't meant to be disrespectful - with modern oils, you really are throwing money away, changing more than every year/ 12k miles (whichever is shortest).

    I had an Evo a few cars ago and Mitsubishi recommended the engine oil was changed every 4.5k miles on that. I stuck to that for 1 year and went to every year or 10k miles afterwards, with no detriment. I just made sure I put in the best oil I could buy (Silkolene Pro S at the time). It was also making about 100bhp/ 100lbft of torque, or 25%, more than stock over that period. This was a pretty common practice for those on the MLR.

    I'll do the same with the S4 but use Millers CFS NT+ as, IMO, it's the current best engine oil you can buy.

    I put 3-5K, but in my case that's once per year.

    Audi recommend 20,000 miles, but get it done every 10,000.

    Drive about 30,000 miles/year.
