1. OEM especially on foreign cars
2. Fram Ultra
3. WIX

I think KN and M1 are very over priced for what they are.

It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that ain't so.

1) Fram Ultra (when other run out!)
2) Leftover Bosch Distance Plus (got tons of them for $3 each)
3) Leftover Frams (various EG, TG, HM and XG - got tons of them for $.50 - $5 each)
4) Various random cheapies from RockAuto for about a buck a pice
5) I'm good. I've probably got 100 filters.

Both cars in my signature take the same oil filter

1. Mahle: Made in Austria for my applications and I've never had the stud stay in the block and leak oil.

2. OEM VAG: Made by Mann in Germany and my local VW dealer is cheaper than AAP for essentially the same filter. I have had the
stud stay in the block causing a mess once however. I now check/tighten the stud with a rubber strap wrench before putting the filter on.
Mahle's never need tightened, Mann's sometimes do.

3. Fram Tough Guard: It's the oil filter on my generator. Filters well @ 99%, silicone ADV, priced reasonable at Walmart.
