Uh, this is no different than the earlier V6s. The service booklet for
my 1993 90 indicates a 7500mi oil-change interval, with the filter
every 15,000mi.

I'm with Sean, here. Why did Audi switch to the larger filter? Prior
to this thread, I had thought the larger filter was introduced with
the 30V motor. I could understand a larger filter in such an application
(presumably they need more flow). But it seems like the larger filter
appeared quite some time before the 30V...
