If Jiffy Lube did your last oil change, they may have simply not even changed it. If the customer isn't looking, this isn't uncommon for them. There is a chance you went 6000 on very cheap poor-quality oil.

These Jiffy Lube problems are well documented across the US.

Anyway, the car looks great! Dental floss will do a great job on that dealer badge, then use some WD-40 on a soft cloth to remove the rest of the residue.

I'm sure thats possible but the oil wasn't completely black when I hanged it, more like a dirty brown, it was still a little transparent.

Yeah I'm on top of that. Like I said I'm never letting that oil turn black again. Anybody else notice the oil filters are kinda small for how big the motor is?
