Re: Oil filter

The Audi part fiche says 87 5000 cs Turbo Quattro uses oil filter part
# 035 115 561 which, according to Mahle, crosses over to the OC85. The
Mahle OC47 filter crosses over to 035 115 561 G which fits most non
turbo 5cyl and 4cyl engines. The same filter (OC85) was used on the 
5cyl turbo engine for quite awhile, but I'm not sure of the full range.
I have seen a lot of 5cyl turbo engines with the OC47 filter installed 
and I have never seen a problem with one that was the filters fault but
I would use the OC85.

Take care
