First oil change

For you DIY folks get yourself an 80mm 15 tang cap type filter wrench to use with a ratchet + extension. The filter from the Factory is WAY over tightened and is a common complaint for various Hyundai's. I couldn't budge the filter with the scissor type wrench, partially due to the angle of attack is so limited due to the plastic belly plate. Of course once you get the Factory filter off and properly tighten the new one you won't have the issue again. Having said that my 1.6 liter Turbo seems to like the Pennzoil Platinum fill. The engine seems to be a quieter at idle to my ears. I'm not sure if the Factory fill was Dexos gen. 2 oil which is now the standard for TDI engines.
