Try Amsoil filters.

Not to mention they're made of one sheet of porous cardboard.

1) Cost less than the OEM, and I *think* they are lower than Mahle.
2) They have about 1" thick filtration material, about the best
3) They have both bypass and anti-drainbacl valves. EVERY filter in
the line has both.
4) IMO, they're the finest available.
You can find a dealer/source by calling 800/777-8491.
PS: SteadiRic has used the Amsoil filters. I would welcome his
comments to the list. Haven't heard him comment about this specific
part of maintenance.
