Well guys I am presently in the middle of the oil change at 1875 miles, Amsoil 5w20 will be going in momentarily The results of the oil pan bolt magnet are shocking. More metal powder than I expected and one massive chunk which is simply amazing. The photo shows a shard of metal sticking straight up exactly as it came out of the pan. The other photo shows black metal powder wiped from the end of the bolt and the shard compared to a dime for reference.The golden oil is from the threads and spillage on the magnet to contrast the black metal powder vis a vis the oil. This is from filtered oil in the pan. I have not yet removed the filter and will post separately those findings once I cut the filter open.

Does the bolt magnet come with the 300, or did you buy it aftermarket?

Aftermarket, it is a Turbomag out of Toronto, I got it off ebay for $12.00 +$5.00 shipping regardless of how many you buy. The bolt is the best place to put the mag, won't go on the pan anyway since it is aluminum. I run these on all my cars and on the trans. pan as well. I use Filtermag on the filter on all my cars. I spoke with the maker of the Mobil 1 filter (Champion labs) and the engineers laugh at the idea of magnets. The proof is in the pudding not in the recepie, these things work as advertised, they keep metal fron circulating in the engine and no engineer can dispute (with any legitimacy) the results. One can have all kinds of theories and excuses on these magnets but the facts are the metal on the paper towel was on the tip of the bolt and not circulating in my engine. See the filtermag results in my other thread.

That's a good price. Do you have a link? I found the Turbo-Mag website and they're selling them for CAN 21.99 (whatever that works out to in USD I'm sure it's not $12).

I just searched ebay and the item is no longer listed, the link you found is the one I used to get info but at the time it was cheaper to go through ebay, the turbomag site is the only other site I know of.

Alot of oil pan and trans pan bolts are magnetic from the factory, I'm not sure why anyone would "laugh" at the idea of this, it is quite normal.

Also, on a brand new engine, it is normal to get some metal shavings.
Right you are about new engines and metal, it sure is nice to have it stuck on the bolt and not in the oil, though I have no proof of improved longevity using magnets.

I had no luck at two HD's in my area with the magnets to use on the oil pan drain plug. they sold some really weak small black mags but nothing silver like you suggested. Can you send me some?
