Hastings or Amsoil oil filters... would U use them?

came across some hastings oil filters to fit MB diesels.. specifically the 240D

just wondered what the opinion is on them?.. I see where Amsoild uses Hastings ase their distributor and has them private label the amsoil stuff.

all frank opinions appreciated.

I'm from the school of "any new filter is better than an old one" i dont order my parts from the internet, i dont pay the dealer, i use what i can get locally.

none of my cars have ever died an early death because i bought a part from a McParts store....

how much are these amsoil filters? why would they be better?

The SDL gets OE filters, the SD gets whatever I cen get cheaper.

When I changed the air filter out in the SD I replaced an old Mann with a new STP. The STP was a complete pos filter compared to the Mann. It had like 1/2 the filter media, and insted of nice soft foam like stuff around the edges for a good seal had cheap hard plastic.

Their is a difference in quality. Whether it matters in the long run is another story.

I was always wondering the difference myself. Today while I was at the dealership I bought the OEM filter that was 12 bucks. I guess it's worth to spend the extra few dollars every 3 months. You can sort of tell the difference in the way that it is made (it looks better).
