I haven't changed mine yet. Maybe I'm lucky or maybe it was down to changing oil every 3--4k miles. Which, now I come to think of it is a bloody lot of oil.
I should mention that my 99 SD01, which had 14,000 miles when I bought her, now has just shy of 141,000 miles. The valve clearances have never been checked either. :ohmy:
