Now, it was there before I bought the car (August) so it means it is a date to change the oil, not the date the oil change has been made... So my question is; do I have to change my oil strictly because of the date? It sounds stupid to me, but it doesn't hurt to ask I guess .
Never a bad idea to change the oil. I watched it come out a few times where it still looked new, but there was all the little pieces of crap that get in there. Good idea to get them out of the engine.

The date is just a 3mo/5000KM thing.

It is the best $20-30 you will spend on your car every 90days.
