Re: 5KCSTQ: oil change-not same old question

I've been using Mann or Mahle for my 85' 5000s for the last 5 years. The Mann
ones are made in Austria. I am not sure about the Mahle but I think they are 
OEM for Porsche. I am not sure if I am going to use Mann or Mahle for my 
92' V6 which I just bought a few months ago, I'll see when it hit 30,000 
miles and decide what to do. Someone in this group had mentioned the oil 
filter for the V6 is different from the 5 cylinders.
