I changed the oil filter for the first time, at 700 miles. Changed the oil twice before this already. That thing is loaded up with metal shavings, anyone else had similar results on the first filter change?
Clutch material? Most of what I see on that pic is called soft carbon. It is formed from the oil at higher temperatures and is totally normal. Just wipe it with your finger and it smears on the surface of the filter. The stuff along the bottom edge of the filter is aluminum shavings, again totally normal. After about 1,000 miles it will stop almost completely, but the soft carbon will continue accumulating, depending on how hot the engine gets between oil changes. Then, at about 40,000 miles, the aluminum will start to increase again.
Want to know if it's aluminum or steel? Pass a magnet along the surface of the filter.....if it picks up anything, it is steel.
Your filter is clean compared to mine on its first change
As said above, its Totally normal (It did freak me out at first too).
I switched to Mobil 1 Synthetic after a couple more conventional oil changes & haven't had any problems (currently have 4,500 miles on her).
