Like most parts on cars, not all are created equal. Here at Long Beach Autohaus, we use only the OE part for your car.. They do cost a bit more, but these are designed specifically for your auto, there is no "one size fits all" when it comes to oil filters. Just recently, a client had a car towed in. He had taken it to a "quick oil" change center, and as it turns out, they uded the wrong filter for the car. This allowed the oil to not flow through as it is meant to, resulting in catastrophic engine failure on the freeway! So, be sure your service center is using the correct part for your car always! Don't be afraid to ask, a reputable center will be happy to show you exactly what goes on or in your car!
