After 2k since the dealer did my last oil change I checked the dipstick and it looked black as if they didn’t change it. It was also overfilled(7qts). I decided to do my own. I went up to wallyworld picked up a bottle of supertech full syn and found they had the fram xtraguard for only $10.96. Usually this is a $30+ filter, I have no clue why!! But I bought the lot. Did my oil change. But now I’m wonder how long these filters will keep? Following the VAG recommended interval, 10k miles, I will have several years of storing these filters. Definitely longer then I plan to keep the car.
