I'm thinking of going with what ever brand Nissan makes/provides, but are there better ones? Are Nissans [censored]?

For the price, it's hard to beat the Purolator PureOne.

I like sticking to the OEM filters. I would use the Nissan.

I use the OEM ones as well. My mother has a 2010 Altima V6 that I maintain. It gets 5w-30 synthetic and an OE oil filter every 6 months.

I think the latest OEM Nissan filter has been improved, and no longer receives as many complaints from the armchair internet experts.

Probably, but reccomending a Fram on here is blasphemy. As long as its relabled though, an not orange its ok.

Nissan oil filters were never made by Fram. The overall design and by-pass are different from anything Fram makes. They are either made by Union Sangyo or Sakura in China in the pass few years but may have changed supplier again recently. Honda and Subaru oil filters on the other hand are manufactured by Fram.

Mann ML1014 or Mahle OC195 would be my choice

Good luck on those in North America, well, the Mahle at least would be tough to find for a North American/Japanese application. It's ironic how one parts store has a wall of Fram for North American and Japanese applications, then a wall of Mann for European stuff.

Even with Ebay and Amazon? I would've thought they'd be quite widely available tbh..

1) there is no one here that can tell you what is "best" because you have not properly defined what "best" means to you

2) any decent qualify brand name filter will more than suffice for a normal OCI; in fact they will probably go 2x the normal OEM OCI

3) there has yet to be any published data I've ever seen linking engine wear and premium filter efficiency (above what the OEM would spec) in real world applications; you can use a more efficient filter, but you'll not get less wear

4) if you intend to GREATLY increase your OCI, then look at any of the syn media options as they have greater holding capacity.

In short, use what you want to satisfy desire, but the engine likely could not care less as long as the filter meets the OEM criteria.
_________________________
Conventionals vs. Synthetics isn't about which is "better"; it's about which lasts longer, while assuring safe operation, in relation to cost. Any product can be over or under utilized. The same applies to filters.
Make an informed decision; first consider your operating conditions, next determine your maintenance plan, and then pick your lube and filter. Don't do it the other way around ...

Nissan changed suppliers for their filters around a year and a half ago. I cut one open from my wifes Quest.

Looks to be a well made filter.
On my wifes Quest, I have had good luck with oem or WIX.

Mann stuff for North American vehicles isn't too bad to find in the States, at least online (i.e. Rock Auto is a good source). Up here, not so much. Amazon won't even ship filters to Canada, of all things. Personally, I haven't seen a Mahle filter for any North American/Japanese vehicle (unless they shared an engine with a European application). The Mann filters for North American and Japanese vehicles are Purolator Classic clones, and not quite what you'd see on a German vehicle. Nonetheless, the Mann filters are fine and very well priced, when you can find them!

For my Infiniti, I switch around on occasion, using Wix, Hastings, Bosch, and Motorcraft so far.

Markets and Marketing confuse me sometimes... Anyhoo, the Mann is available on Ebay,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/MANN-ML-1014-Eng...54d&vxp=mtr

Mahle can get the OC 195 if you go to them directly but it seems like too much trouble when the Mann is on Ebay
