Re: oil change? (GreenVW1.8T)

VW's seem to be able to run extended oil change interval's. Don't listen to anyone that tells you that you have to change the oil in your car at 3k miles to get all the crud out of the motor. That is applicable to motors built twenty years ago. Motors built today are flushed many times to remove all the casting sand and machining chips.
As far as the crush washer goes is that just the washer for the oil drain plug or is ther one for the filter as well?
