If the oil is fully synthetic, then unless it /really/ overheated, you won't have damaged the oil at all. But if it overheated /that/ much, then you have a lot more to worry about - head gasket for a start. Personally I wouldn't change the oil. Also, I wouldn't drive a car that's overheating (except old, knackered bangers that I don't care about). -- Grunff
