Hi there,

I just changed oil & filter, plus air filter, on my MY'05 Toyota Yaris.

After the [censored] Klaxcar filters I had, I now put Ashika filters in. Don't know what to think, so let roll the cheese pics and see what comes out of BITOG

The address on the boxes is in Italy (lol it's written in whatever language). But where's the filter manufactured... Who knows.

Here's a youtube post use dissection. Construction looks decent and similar to the China made filters posted. But without some confirmation can't say coo definitively.

Yes it does. Makes me wonder if perhaps some of that is overlap of metal to the inside with the cutting of the can.

Also in addition to the dome leaf spring, the filter uses an extra coil spring on the adbv area. I don't remember seeing that in China made filters posted.

I believe there are too many quality brands of oil filters to bother with Asian made filters that are sold by an Italian distributor. I think the Premium Guard brand would even be a better choice.

Yep, there looks to be some overlap of metal from the cutting, but the can still looks very thick accounting for that. There wouldn't be that much metal overlap if it was a thin can.

Ashika is a Japanparts brand of filters. Japanparts is Italian company that covers Asian vehicles. Extra EU means outside of European Union. Like China.

Does the Ashika weigh more, or less than the previous filter? I don't know filters, but weight means robust. hide
