I've had my 2014 GT Premium for over a year and so far the only mod I've done is a set of MRT louvers on the back window. You'd be surprised how much cooler the car stays, even in direct sunlight. Before the louvers, the car interior would be so hot that it would still be warm after a 15 minute commute home with the A/C blasting. After louvers, it takes about 5 minutes to cool off and is totally nice in 15 minutes. That back glass is like a big sunlight/heat amplifier!

I have my oil changed at 7500 mile/8 mo intervals mainly because I don't put a lot of miles on my car. If you put on 12,000 miles in less than a year, I'd go with 1 oil change with full synthetic. If you put on 6,000 in a year, I'd change it at 1 year. Time can actually be the enemy here if you don't drive a lot of miles.

I do oil changes at 5K which, with as much as I drive anymore, is only about twice a year. Most often I end up changing the oil before I put it away for the winter and then sometime a little while after I get it back out and drive it for a few thousand.

I drive more than 12k a year, I drive a lot even in traffic, I work in downtown and love in the valley and I'm the guy that does most of the errands, it's my only car. So I would assume my oil changes might be more freq.
