I used them for many years on Acuras, Hondas, Nissans, Infinitis and an Isuzu Trooper. Never had an issue. Made in Malaysia quality was good. Likely on a par with Denso and Nippon for quality.

They are not real easy to find cut open online, but the ones I find absolutely look NOTHING like an A01 internally... So unless you consider approximately the same shape and a shade of blue ďcloneĒ Iím not sure I buy that the are A01 clones.

I donít also know what they cost on EBAY, but at Amazon pricing you might as well buy real Honda filters.

A few years ago I paid $4.05 for the C-562 Honda filter at a BAP Geon store.

They are ~$26.00 for 6 with drain plug seals on Amazon so ~ $4.33 each, so not as good as the bay.

Cool, I would appreciate that, I was going to cut one with the last batch I did but I could not find a single on Amazon that I was sure was a C-562 and didnít want to go $26.00 just to get one to cut open.

Only problem with them is if they are old. I look for fresher filters, preferably with a date. Or from a retail dealer I know has fresh stock. On ebay you could be getting 15 year old filters. Older than that even.

I can get a 6-pack of Fram Ultras for $4 ea....

Which I trust more than any Malaysian oil filter .

I would put them an equal to Denso made filters. Two issues I have is they are not really price competitive most times and the other issue is they seem to be third party imported to the USA with no real presence here if in the rare event you need to push back on a warranty claim of some type.
