[A4] Oil Filter Purchase

In addition to the links I recently posted under the Discount Dealer thread 
(WI has the OEM for $8), www.autohausaz.com has Bosch and Mahle filters (if 
you have a 1.8T make sure you get the oversized filters spec'ed by Audi 
since the sludge problem) that are about $6. You can get the drain plug and 
washer for $1, but you shouldn't have to replace that every time (I don't 
think you can remove the washer from the bolt).

I've done a backyard "analysis" of these and the OEM and posted in my page 
on sludge at http://members.cox.net/ambox/audi_sludge/

Subject: [A4] Oil Filter Purchase

Hey all,

It's time to change my oil again and I'm out of filters.  I usually just
purchase a batch of 6 or so OEM filters online and I'm good for a year or
so.  Well, I've forgotten who I usually order from and cannot find any good
deals out there.  Who do you buy your oil filters from and do they give you
the crush washer as well?
