The filter can hold a lot of small metal pieces. With the color of my oil I think the filter should be fine. No water in my oil. I think I should be fine to wait the 100hrs mark. I saw a video on YouTube of someone changing the oil after like 20hrs and his filter was like new.

I'm not sure if removing the filter oil with all the oil in it will make a mess. I do not want all the oil to spill in the hull..

Thats still cleaner than the oil that is in my car after I change it!

Looks fine to me, Its also synthetic, so you can get a bit more life out of it even if it is black

I was surpise on how light the color was. Almost like new. I did not use product to clean my hand just a towel.

Common sense? The manual says first oil change at 100 hours. I would like to know the reasoning behind an oil change at 10 hours. Coming from a trained mechanic it seems like a waste of money to me. Today's synthetic oils and tight engine machining tolerances I can't see any reason for it.

Cormacs... Far be it from me disagree with you, as you are one of the wisest people on the forums, but to this point only, changing the oil on any new engine would seem like a good idea... I saw a youtube video after 5 hours, pieces of metal were in the filter... This would seem like a good practice, right?

I would love to hear what you think....

I would be amazed if you found any debris in the filter of a modern engine. At least anything worth mentioning. The filter is designed to catch debris so naturally there will be some in it but it's just doing its job. If I saw too much metal in a filter no mater the age I would be concerned.

I would be concerned with any amount of metal pieces. Specs or metal dust I would consider normal wear. Changing the oil and filter at 10 hours isn't going to make it any better.
