I did it at 12,000km. i can't sense any obvious improvement, except that it's quieter than before.

After the 1st change at 1301 miles, my car was quieter at startup and more smooth.

After the 2nd one at around 8500 miles was not as noticable as the first one, but I still felt the car run smoother.
