Hi friend from Cleveland, I had the second oil change of my 18 Mirage G4 on the end of March （12200 KM), this is also the first DIY oil change in my life. The first oil change was done in late Dec at 7600km (conventional 5W-20). I used Quaker state conventional 5W-20 and Parts Plus oil filter from Rockauto (less than 2 dollars each and the quality looks good!)

The oil change was not difficult, it took some time to put on the new oil filter (I prefilled it about 1/2). I also put some tinny strong magnet on both the oil filter and drain plug. I guess I did not tighten the drain plug enough, it drips only several drops of oil per day. But it should not be a concern till the next oil change (it may lose 150-300 ml oil after 6 months). Planning to do the next oil change in early Oct using 0W-20 synthetic oil before winter comes. I also kept the receipts for the oil filters and oil, hopefully the DIY wont affect the warranty in Canada.
