Question First Fuel Filter Change

I asked at the dealership today how much it cost to change my fuel filter. They said 139 for the FIRST time and then 69 after that. They said the first time they have to change something out so it cost more?!?!?! Has anyone heard of this?

Last night I looked all over the site to try and find the stock replacement filter or a baldwin, but from what I can tell they dont have any OEM filters yet and the only option is to buy it from the dealer service department if you want to change it yourself. Has anyone found a replacement yet?

Tonight I am going to be nosing around looking at the replacement fuel filter systems discussed on this site. I figure if its not to expensive, it might just pay for itself after the two years or so.

Thanks!

They are thinking that they need to convert you to the new style filter but your 2010 already has it.
