The old filter was filthy and likely clogged on the inside.

Which filter are you talking about?

Ok i think since it's only done 90 000k's and it's got Inspection II coming up at 100 000k's i'm only going to do this:

Engine Oil & Filter
Fuel Filter
Coolant Flush (only because it's a little bit dirty)
Check other fluid levels, brake/power steering etc

I'll order in a Vanos Filter and other bits from Turner Motorsports for the Inspection II once it hits 100 000k's. That way once the next service comes along i'll do a valve adjustment and stuff too.

How does that sound?
