If you bring your own oil and filter, they will only charge you labor cost.

Re: (phuz)

Unless you are planning an oci in excess and well in excess of 7500 miles the product isn't worth the extra cost. The filters aren't made to go past 5000 to 7500 miles anyway. They have to be changed.<p>Oil color doesn't have any bearing on performance. Frankly, an oil showing some color is good, and shows it's cleaning somewhat and holding oxides in suspension. Mobil ususally will show significant color changes after 2000 miles.<p><br>Regular Mobil 1 is fine for 5000/7500 miles OCI.<p>German Castrol 0/30 (castrol syntec, made in Germany available at autozone) is perported to be the smoothest oil around according to <A HREF="http://www.bobistheoilguy.com" TARGET="_blank">http://www.bobistheoilguy.com</A>. And that oil can go over 7500 mile OCI to boot.<p><B>Phuz, your car is in warranty, no way should you fool with extending the OCI (oil change interval) past what the manual says. Don't ever go past 7500 miles. There is NO need to use that oil. Buy regular Mobil 1 5/30 for your vehicle.</B><U></U>
