How often do you change your oil?

Wondering how often other Fiesta ST owners are changing their oil. I'm pro tuned to 93 octane and more boost = more pedal for me. That being said, I changed my oil at 1000 miles after break in, then 4000 miles, and now at approaching 11,000 I feel guilty that I havn't done my oil change at the 3000 mile mark, and that persistent Oil Life light on my dash is definitely not helping.

Ford's 10,000 interval between oil changes seems crazy long to wait to change oil on a car this fun to drive fast. Others thoughts on the OEM recommendation between oil changes?

I do it every 5k because that's easy to remember. 3k is too little for oils now. I probably could do more than that, but an oil change doesn't really cost that much. I do Mobil 1 full synthetic. Just rolled over 14k today so I've got my third oil change coming up within the next month or so.
canadian dealer told me that my 2014 fist does not have a oil reset i am using co-op full synthetic 5-20
For the oil light? It comes on at a random 10,200 ish miles. Way too long between oil changes to me. I've reset the light twice now though. I don't remember the procedure, but it's easy enough to find somewhere on the forum I believe.
