The XL-III is the low-SAPS VW 504/507 product. There's no reason to use this oil if you don't have a vehicle that specifies it. The first product listed - Xtreme MST C3 would be my choice of these two. My car does require the XL-III but Valvoline d

The PO-19 I cut open looked similar to that PO-37 but the pleats were even straighter on the 19. The PO-19 is a PL195 clone (Fram 3600, Motorcraft 400 etc..) and was installed at a Quick Lube by the PO. The HF cutter worked very well and I'm happy

The service at my local Harley dealer is 400 bucks. That's every 5K miles. I just can't see how they come up with that amount (they detail the bike, though). I do it myself for about $60.
