I change my oil every 2100 miles

What do you guys think... I always change my oil, using fully synthetic MOBIL 1 5w-20 with new filter every 2100 miles.
I just do it because it gives me a peace of mind that everything is running well there.

So what do you guys think... anyone does the same?

I know it is strange to say that I change at 2100, but the reason for it is that as soon I change the oil i start keeping track of it and after I pass 2000 mark, I am already planning to change it and by them time I do it I already have 2100 on it... LOL

It's good preventative maintenance, to be sure - a lot of people would say you're pissing money into the wind, but to some, peace of mind is priceless. I don't change my oil anywhere near that often, and I'm 95% sure I'll suffer any multitude of failures well before I get my engine to take a dump due to dirty oil.

probably doing more harm than good

every 5,000 to 7,500 w/ synthetic and an oil filter would be a lot better.
