So planning to replace Engine and Cabin air filters for Acura. Noticed on RA, Denso is showing as an OEM and both can be had for ~$18 delivered.

On the other hand, I bough Fram Fresh Breeze and Extra Guard filters from Walmart for ~$35.

Does anyone has any feedback for Denso and if they are similar to Fram?

Thank you thumbsup

The ones I have used were fine, no issues that I am aware of.

Thanks Trav, yeah cost difference is like 100% more, hence I am leaning toward Denso vs Fram option.

They sometimes have had free shipping, high quality. http://densoautoparts.com/filters-air-filters.aspx I bought there several times.

Have I got something for you then!

I picked up some of the Denso First Time fit filters because I was curious if they were identical to Toyota OEM. I'm still not sure if they are, but I'll gladly use the Denso filters.

Air Filter comparison - They seem pretty similar. Maybe a SLIGHT difference in media, but I couldn't discern any other differences in build or gaskets.








Cabin filter - Denso has maybe half the pleats (at 1/3 the cost) but the dimensions were good. Left is my dirty OEM Toyota CAF with about 7k miles on it.

Did you go through cart and see the total? More than the $18? Also Amazon of course.

yeah, shipping alone is ~$14, but prices are similar to RA.

They do look almost identical, it would be no surprise if they were the OE manufacturer.

I use whatever in my Rav4. Use cheap but decent. Cheap to save money. Decent so you get good enough filtration.

Denso are the best for my application. But, every vehicle is different.

OEM for whatever reason is cheaper for me.

I have used the Denso cabin air filter for my scion and it's much better quality than the other stuff I've tried out there. And yes Denso IS the oem supplier for filters to Toyota. I think Toyota owns a majority stake in that company.

I recently bought Denso First Time Fit air filters for my Infiniti Q50 3.7 and I was impressed with their quality and finish. They have a high-quality polyurethane gasket to help seal the air box and the filter media appeared to be of good quality. They also have a stainless steel mesh screen that covers the filter media to give it added strength and filtration. They fit perfectly (my car takes 2 air filters) and I actually liked them better than my previous OEM Nissan air filters. I would definitely recommend them.
