Re: oil filter

035 115 561 filter, if I recall correctly, fits my MB Urquattro (and many
other turbo Audis).  Made by Knecht in Austria.  They make many of the
original filters, usually their name is not on the filter, but their little
square logo is.  If your filter is made in austria, it is likely Knecht.
Another household name for the list...
