DIY 15K Service on Q5 2.0T- Should Oil be Black?
Recently did the 15k oil change DIY using the extraction method. The first oil change was performed (presumably) at the dealer at 5K. The oil I extracted was completely black (not brown). For those that have performed 15k oil changes on Q5s, is black oil at 15k normal? I'm a little suspicious that the oil was not changed at 15k because (a) the oil filter was so tight it took a breaker bar to remove it, and (b) the oil was black (not brown as I would have expected). Thanks!
