I had this filter lying around and decided to cut it open. Lots of glue mess but looks serviceable.

Enjoy the photos

Well when you use inferior metal endcaps which don't really want to bond to media in the first place you need lots of glue. grin2 grin2 grin2

Yeah that one looks really good ^^^^^^^


I do think the XL filters made by Premium Guard are typically very well made.

Yep -The Premium Guard XL pricing always seems to be $2-$3 lower (@rockauto) than STP XL and the filters are virtually identical.
