Still have to cut the OE oil filter open for inspection, as I have done with all spin-ons over the last 30+ years.
Replaced the drainplug with a Votex neo magnetic drainplug. Uses the same 17mm socket.
Give Kia credit for a couple small panels to get to the drainplug and the oil filter. I don't care for those pushpins but it sure beats having to remove under panels. This time I didn't break any pins but I will order some spares and leave them in the tool box.
The oil had a good dark amber coloring and plenty of the break-in metallic dust like look to it. Don't think the camera does the metal swirls any justice.
Dumped the factory fill 5w20 conventional for a good ol' synthetic 5w30.
