2014 SLP Panther Camaro: Second Oil Change
June 5, 2014
This week I took it in for its second.
Last time the guys at the Valvoline Instant Oil Change facility in Marina del Rey, California did such a good job the Panther and I returned. The manager Maurice is a fifth-gen Camaro owner and real car guy. He remembered us.
"He's back," he yelled as we rumbled in.
This time Kevin, who daily drives a modified 1999 Trans Am, also helped us out. His Pontiac, which runs 11-second quarter-mile times, uses some SLP parts, so we had plenty to talk about. Good guys. We all talked cars as they performed the service, and it was clear they were taking a little extra care on our black Camaro.
They changed the filter and added 8 quarts of 5W30 Valvoline SynPower Synthetic. The total bill was $126.52, but I had a $10 coupon, which they had mailed to me, so I was out of there for $116.52.
