Oil change

LR told me first service is in 12 months. It makes me nervous. Anyone else nervous or believe I should change the oil sooner? Where do the metal shavings go or is that a thing of the past?

Hi, Thank you for that question. I was thinking the same thing. Are we suppose to just wait for the oil lamp to turn on and advise us?

I personally changed it at 3K miles. Just for the peace of mind.

That is exactly what i would do. being a vehicle I plan to keep well past the original warranty I rather just do that. At least then you know for sure its been well taken care of to the best it can. No harm in doing more maintenance than recommended.

Funny, my dealer sent me an email:
"We hope you are enjoying your new Discovery Sport.
This is just a reminder to schedule your 6-month interval service.
This complimentary service includes a multi-point inspection and a 1-time tire rotation."

So what does the dealer do at 6 months ?
Oil ?
Or take a peek and rotate the tires ?
Do I get a loaner ?

This is new to me being first time with JLR.....

10K miles or 12 months whichever comes first. I'm sure these engines get run up on a bench and then have the oil changed. If not, oh well....that's LRs standard recommendation. Just do it at a qualified dealership within those specs and if something happens to your engine within warranty, then you get a new engine on LR. If you're worried about it happening after factory warranty...get an extended warranty...best practice if you own a LR vehicle anyway.
