Unhappy $30.55 Later!

After trying to find both the filter for my PZEV and also the 5W 20 oil, I gave up and brought it to the dealer for it's first oil change. I brought it to a different dealer from where I purchased it because my dealer did not even have the filter in stock yet. I think I will continue to have this dealership change the oil though. Now that I am in their "system", they will send out reminders & coupons for future oil changes for about $22.00.

While I was there waiting, checked out a few cars; 1) '03 SVT Focus 4dr hatchback. Nice looking car. I think I am going to get the SVT door handles to swap out for the black ones on my car. Would love to get those headlights too!. 2) '03 SVT Mustang. What can I say, a beautiful execution. 3) '04 F150 4dr Crew Cab. Nice looking truck but for $36K, I don't know. Maybe if I win the Powerball tonight.

Sheesh the SVT Focus is way overpriced at that much...The Stang on the other hand is quite a bargain even at sticker.

You couldnt find the oil filter on a PZEV ? ?? Are you blind ? Go to front bumper, put head under front bumper, look. It will be the first thing you see on the engine hanging straight down.
