My receipt didn't mention some of the things on your list...Did I get shorted?
I think as long as they change the fluids your car is fine. The dealer did say that the car was telling them to change the microfilter, but they said they know of no reason why that is necessary at this time. Nobody on this board has been able to explain why it would be necessary, so I didn't have any reason to say that it is required.

2 days was a very long time - I think it was mainly an issue they were having with my key telling them that the car needed services that it really did not need. My receipt turned out to be 4 pages! Anyways, the car seems to be running fine and everything is in good shape. Hopefully nothing comes back to haunt me. I might go to a different dealer for my next service just for comparison.
