Am I missing something here?  The oil filter that the dealer uses on the
warranty oil changes on my A4, as well as the ones I use the the oil
changes in between, are exactly the same as the I-5 oil filters.  Is my
dealer 'cheaping out' by using the older filters, or is this a 2.8 vs. 1.8t
issue (I have a 1.8tq)..............SLM
