I don't feel like paying for an oils change, is it simple on the S40?, filter recommendations? I already use castrol edge, me and the wife want to save money.

For some one not very mechanically inclined, it is very simple. For some people, the hardest part is getting the filter housing off. Its really not that bad. Recommend investing in buying a filter socket if you plan on doing all the changes yourself. Makes the removal much easier. Takes me a about 30-40 minutes, with most of that time spent waiting for the oil to drain. Good luck

It's easy. Just don't over tighten the plug cap (what ever the technical term for that is) because it's all aluminum down there and you could easily strip it and then be in BIG trouble.
