This filter ran for 4,160 miles and four months on a 2007 Infiniti M35 with QS synthetic blend.

The crease around the media was caused by my cutting tool. This filter is the version made in Taiwan and purchased in 2008. Pleat count was 60. Media is in decent shape with no tears. Don't know how this filter differs from the newer ones from China or the Nissan filters from Japan.

Looks perfectly fine. How much do these cost?

This was my last filter from a case bought in 2008 from an Infiniti dealer. Price surely is different now. For the car now, I have Union Sangyo and Hastings filters in my stash.

Looks like a white version of my Nissan OEM.

I paid $5.25 each for the OEMs 6 years ago at Gwinnett Infiniti in GA. When I bought them I thought they were Japanese made. not Taiwanese.
