The PO of my wife's Volvo 240 installed a bypass filter on that vehicle. It was done properly and therefore there are no leaks, this is a serious consideration with these units. According to oil analysis the filter is working and the oil stays consistantly clean so you save a few $$ there. However I think the benefits only really outweigh the cost if your driving a big rig. These things really are overkill for passenger cars unless your an environmental nut. I'd recommend using synthetic with extended drain intervals (change factory filter as regularly as recommended though) and you'll be fine.
