Change Oil/Filter Before Break-in?


Vehicle Information: Year: 2003; Body Type: Cabriolet; Total Mileage: 120;

We just picked up a new (120 miles) 2003 C2 cab for my wife. We will be storing the car until next May. The build date of the car was January, 2003. As the oil in the car will be about 16 months old when we take the car out of storage, do you think it would be a good idea to change the oil/filter before driving it in the Spring and beginning the break-in? I don't see how changing the oil/filter could hurt unless Porsche factory fills the cars with a special break-in oil that is not available at the dealer. Are you aware if Porsche uses a special "break-in oil or just Mobile 1 0W-40?Thank you very much for you your help
