IMHO the WIX brand is a good one, manufactured by the Dana Corporation.
(100K experience with 180 total now on the car).  My parts guy has had
cutaways of them on display with a few other brands.  There was a
significantly greater amount of filtering paper in the WIX than the
others.  Granted, he didn't have the German brands, only the popular
American brands.
