Yes, the price is very Fram-like. I bought a dozen Manns at that 
price, a while back. I hope I haven't Framilated my Audi. :-)

Speaking of Fram: A year (or so) ago while I was kibbitzing at a 
nearby Audi garage, an insurance adjuster came by to pick up an 
estimate for rebuilding the 5 cyl engine on an '88 Audi 5K. It seems 
a Fram oil-filter element had disintegrated and seized the engine in 
the twinkling of an eye. Fram had actually agreed to pay for the 
rebuild, as I recall.
