Just saw the "new" filters at AAP yesterday. New boxes and the filter is red. I wonder if they took care of the tearing problem. Has anyone here tried one yet?

It will be a year or more before we even have a clue.

With all the OCD types on Bitog, someone's going to buy a new filter and cut it open very soon to post pics for all of us to comment on. :-P

LOL this is true, but in order to convince me I want to see how they hold up in service, several of them. My trust in Purolator is no longer there, it will take some time to re-establish that.
