Fram = junk, along with STP, Penzoil, and a couple of others. read the oil filter study (URL two posts up). NAPA filters are made by WIX, which should be ok, bummer about the O-ring.

I don't understand why people don't get the OE (dealer) or OEM (Hengst, Mann, Knecht) filters. I've never had a problem, ever, with OE or OEM. Cheaping out to save two bucks on a ten dollar filter when the engine costs $2k+ to replace is, IMO, poor economy.

For MB's with spin-on filters, the K&N is a niiiice unit... the nut welded on the end is well worth the extra $$ by itself!
