Hm.....I've never noticed different filters in all the cross-
reference books; mobil's filter is something-205. It is an extremely
common filter size; lots of other european cars take it. I wonder if
Bosch/whoever just has old stock or something.
After reading a page about oil filter designs, I popped in a
Purolator "Premium" which was recommended based on element size and
construction. I also discovered that it is very easily pre-filled
since the center 'hole' is open all the way down into the element.
Is there a larger filter that'll fit, by the way? Don't I recall
something about diesel filters fitting? I could care less if it
sticks down a little bit further.
