Bringing this one back. Couple questions first according to the manual and the dealer the filter doesn't need to be changed until around 150k. Changing it couldn't hurt? I cant imagine that though.

Second the car still has warranty, if I were to diy the fluid change and say down the road I had issues with it could they deny the claim because I didn't have the service done at the dealer.

Oh and I called the dealer this morning just to see and its actually 179 to have the flush done and that's not even the filter!!! Robbery if you ask me. It really baffles me why they charge so much for it.
