$450?? Yikes. How long did it take them? Towing charges?
Glad to hear it's off though. I have been reading in amazement

Was there another gasket from the old filter left on or does it appear
that it was just grossly overtightened?
Once off, did the union/post that it screws onto unscrew from it freely?
