The oil may be in good condition because the oil filter has successfully removed small particles from it. It may start to clog and impede oil flow. I am just wondering if it would be wise to at least replace the filter sooner than the oil.

Any chance that they can analyze the filter too? This would be a good indication of exactly how the engine wears over time, since we could see what is getting filtered out.
