My first oil change

I drive ~2400 miles a month and one month has passed since I took delivery, so I decided to do the Cruze's first oil change myself. First of all I am happy to report that it's a piece of cake. With the car on ramps, it took me all of about 15 minutes to change the oil and filter, most of that time waiting for the oil to fully drain out.

I was surprised to see that car was delivered with a PF64 oil filter, while the manual calls out for a UPF64R filter. I had done some research before ordering the oil filters and came upon this post in another forum - seems like GM is not following their own advise.

I'm going to have to make sure that the dealer used the appropriate filter when I bring it to them for oil changes!

I think mine came with the UPF64R one. It was actually a bit hard to find online when I did my own oil change.

Not sure what's actually on it since I did one of the free dealer oil changes. It's blue, but the label's facing my oil pan.

I do miss the relatively clean oil filter (cartridge) change from the Gen 1.

Now if the RS went up my ramps I'd be doing really good, but I gotta take out the jack and stands.
What ramps? Mine gets up these and a similar plastic set my brother has no issues. The front wind deflector thing drags a tiny bit as you start up, but it's very flexible.
