    These guys on this site live and breathe lubricants and filtration. They do testing to come to the conclusions they post on the site. There’s a lot of knowledge here from people who just don’t except the manufactures claims for their products. I hope this will help answer some of the questions on this thread.
    Given the wide variation of diametrically opposed opinions posted on the www.bobistheoilguy.com, I would not recommend members visit that site for advice (I previously spent quite a bit of time there). Although some people who give advice on that site have a fair amount knowledge about older engines and older oil technology, they have very little knowledge about newer technology that has changed quite a bit in the last 10-15 years. Much of what is posted is rumor or folklore which may have been true 20 years ago, or may have never been true.

    I agree - what started out as a small forum with a few educated folks has turned into a large forum with a lot of somewhat educated folks, and they can be the most dangerous type to take advice from! Still, its better than nothing...

    Save the receipt from the filters and oil. These days you could take a digital pic of the old filter next to a newspaper too.

    Plus, those people have no sense of humor. One guy was boasting about how many different brands/viscosities/types of oil he had tried in his car, and I responding that he was a whore who was putting his dipstick into every oil he saw. He compalined to the moderator, and I was locked-out for 24 hours. Most other members thought it was hilarious.

    But come to think of it, not too many on this forum have a sense of humor either.

    I think that's pretty funny, and also clever. I have tried my sense of humor, and it's hard to sense humor this over a forum, and also my humor is usually pretty dry. Some people are probably frieghtened by a few comments, not knowing I was joking too.

    It was obvious I was joking, and got a bunch of LOL's responses from others before he even saw my post, but the guy was from Utah and pretty uptight about that sort of thing. I guess LDS Church members don't like to joke about sex.

    No pictures of the oil filter location on the '12's yet?

    I changed oil in my '12 3.8 today. Sure wish they'd left the filter up top. It took about 10 minutes to take the skidpan bolts out (10mm). Once I got it off-the oil filter was easy to spot but kind of hard to get loose. The cap is plastic but it fits into a metal housing. It really didn't seem to want to loosen or tighten easily-a real tight fit. Initially- even though I used a torque wrench-35 nm- it appeared to possibly be leaking, but now appears ok.
    I used Mobil 1 5w-30 that I picked up for $26 a case at Costco. That's about $4.40 compared to over $9.25 at Pepboys. I used a Hyundai filter which included cap seal AND crush washer. Cost was $8.25 which seemed high but the parts guy sold me an extra crush washer because he didn't know one was already included. I was kind of amazed that the oil was real black- but that just means it's doing it's job. It all worked out okay but would have been a whole lot easier job on a lift though.

    Plastic shroud must be removed to access the filter? Same as my CLK350 cabriolet.
    I love the filter up top- quick and EZ

    So the '12 is in a different location eh? Nice. Is it still a cartridge like the previous years?
