OP be ready to spend at least $250 for Type B service. :)

This is why I deal with b-line mechanic/Pole Position. Last time I got my Front Brakes, guess what they also told me my Shocks was leaking but nothing serious.

It takes a minute to INSPECT under the hood/neath and they'll charge $200 for it.

A1 means oil change and tire rotation, and the dealer will only do the bare minimum that Honda requires. If you want a new oil filter in an A1 then you have to specifically request it, and they will charge extra for it.

OP , If you are that concerned, you can still get the filter changed. Either at the dealership ( they will charge you ofcourse) or any independent mechanic ( Buy OEM filer and supply him, I think ivan said in his thread that he keeps OEM honda filters in you are nearby his area) .
The oil level will go bit down so you will need to add some oil ( you can buy a 1 liter bottle for that)

As per the manual A1 only calls for oil and tire rotation.
The dealership that I used to change the oil always included the oil filter and it was in there for 9$ as a part. Never really cared for 9$.
B service is the bitch one. Will cost you 350$ all in every second maintenance (maintenance minder cycles between A and B every aprox 8k km's +/- depending on city/hwy driving)

Can you keep the oil clean? For the amount of work, I would just leave it.

You dont need to drain oil if it is recently changed by the dealer. If you have tools and skills just change the filter and you are set. Personally I would not bother it. your new car had the OEM filter and as Honda recommends , filters are good for a year.
In case you change filter, after putting the new filter, start and stop the engine a couple of times, then check the dipstick and top up.

How are you going to change the filter without draining?

I am sorry , I take my words back, may be I got confused.
I saw the folks changing oil, the filter is removed later after draining the oil hence very little oil came out of it so I just though that filter contains very little oil. This may be due to the fact that filter is removed after the oil is drained. I think I somehow got the idea that may be filter is independent and can be changed without draining oil.
Got it wrong. Thx for correcting.

Hey but wait, there has to be some truth in what I am saying.
I have heard from some folks whose car burn lots of oil and hence they keep on adding lots of oil. They mentioned that they only change filter and dont change oil anymore. How is that possible then?

Any one got any clue?

0w-20 is fully synthetic, you will not find it in conventional version

I will be surprised if you do.
