15k oil change is going to feel weird at first and understandably so. This is a major mindset change for everyone. Might I suggest that you start at 11k, then 12k, then eventually 15k and monitor your car's performance along the way. I'm going to start at 10k then 12k then 14k and 15k, with a stock filter change at every least until I get one of their extended performance filters.
Do you really think they will replace your engine under that warranty? When I was researching oil there were tons of threads out Mobil-1 quality on bobtheoilguy forums that showed that it was sub par compared to other oils in the tests.

(Perhabs that been proven false now)
