The 2011 IS we had was specced for synthetic and 10k mile oil changes. You should have no problem going 7-10k using most major brand full synthetic oils.

If your OTD figure includes TTL, I don't think you did bad at all. You got a great car with lots of options for a pretty good price.

Congrats and enjoy your new car!

Not to worry - you got a great vehicle for a great price. More than a 10% discount on a 2015 is doing very well - the dealer does not have as much margin to work with on a base vehicle.
