That's about right as long as it's a fine "fuzz". You're always gonna get that out of the primary

Normal. Drain, refill, and repeat in 10,000 miles.

I change mine every 5k because I like to keep it simple and change all 3 at the same time. Having said that, I still get flakes on my drain plug every time.

Yesterday I had 3 slivers stuck to the magnet 1/8" to 1/4" each. Time will tell. That mushy stuff is normal wear and tear.

Yup, agree with all. Normal for primary. I would worry if you had a piece that you could read the part number on it.....

That fuzz is normal. If you see different than that fuzz, you will need to have it looked at by a professional.
