re: Oil filters [free], oil [also free] and lower prices...

I bought that (Audi) filter from the local AoA dealer a few weeks ago and
was surprised to see it priced at $7.49. That was cheaper than the local
Bosch supplier was asking for Mann filters ($10).

BTW, speaking of Mann filters: what is the difference between filters
marked 719/15 and 719/5?? They appear pretty similar, externally.
