You go to your "account" and order a new oil change kit. Once you receive it, you change the oil. Fill the oil containers they just sent you with the old oil, take the old filter and two O rings, package it all up, fill out some paperwork and drop that in the box and send it back to them USPS shipping for $19. You also go online to their website and fill a return form. Or maybe just the paper one. I can't recall, but once they receive the old kit they will credit your account, meaning CC back the $142. That's it. Rinse, wash and repeat when ready for the next oil change. Now, I don't even add a quart anymore because I'm changing at 3k miles. If the light does come on I might throw a tiny bit of oil in, order my kit which will take a few days if you add additional $10 shipping. If not it's free shipping to you and takes a little over a week. My last batch was ordered Monday and came in Thursday. Easy Peasy.

Yes, I've just discovered these guys! Great deal they have going there. I have no affiliation whatsoever, just a happy customer.
IMO, stick with OE filter, even from the dealer if need be, otherwise from anywhere that sells the genuine part. Too cheap to risk anything of lower quality.

Get your oil from FCP Euro and send it back with each change.

Buy your oil from FCP Euro. You buy the oil one time and it is free each time after. Fcp Euro oil kit is $142. Pay once and never pay again. I know it sounds too good to be true, look for the thread in the general section. Also Moly is very loud, definitely not a fan of moly.
That is crazy! Will be buying all my parts/fluids from them if this is true

Not to mention, FCP Euro is now a sponsor of the Tail run. My above post was way before they had been. As a customer and fan boy of them I am very happy they are on board.

Sounds fun! Too bad that's probably close to 2,000 miles and several speeding tickets away from me

Keep an eye out for more whining in the near future
Pardon my ignorance...but just curious, what's a "V" car?.............Corvette? VW?
