3)My biggest concern is the engine, i've read here people changing their oil very early, should i be worried about damage, however minute, i'm planning on keeping this car indefinitely?
4)Last Q, how do I change my profile name b/c i ain't no Specialist?
1.) I would ask the manager why his tech didn't feel the need to change your oil filter during the first oil change, and really ream them out for it.
2.) Nah.
3.) Even with the extra sludge that ends up in the oil during break-in, the filter shouldn't have had trouble handling it for the entire 6,000 miles. I can't imagine any damage was done, but if you can get something out of the dealership for it, why not. Don't let it happen again in the future, of course.
4.) Dunno, contact the board administrator.
