* Look for the Hyundai "H" in oval stamp down the hole of the oil filter stamped in the metal - fake Hyundai oil filters will not have this "H" oval stamp in the metal down the hole .

Wonder if the Kia filters will have a 'K' down in the hole?

If you ordered from the link I posted above, the filters were probably intended for the Korean market (Korean language on boxes). You can look at the exterior filter gasket with a magnifying glass and look for the stylized Hyundai "H" that should be molded into the gasket to authenticate the filter.

I got the filter from a different seller on Amazon than yours. However the box does have Korean and English on it. After looking at the pictures in the post and comparing my filter it looks the same. It even has the tiny H on the gasket.

To be fair, I doubt that most dealer mechanics or the OEM itself would care much about the oil filter in an engine warranty claim, as long as it was present at the time of the failure and had decent oil inside it. As long as it looks functional, that's all that would matter IMHO. Mechanics are unlikely to dissect the filter (to the point that I did above) and examine it for authenticity.
