SHOULD I ALWAYS PLACE MY OFFICIAL / ORIGINAL BRAND OIL FILTER?
We recommend following the instructions in your vehicle’s manual. A good quality oil filter will protect the life of your engine. Many brands have their own manufacture of filters and others choose the production of their spare parts in brands such as Mann-Hummel who respect their manufacturing standards but stamp with the requested brand. But we must always be careful since an official brand does not guarantee product quality, so when in doubt it is recommended to place filters with top brand prints.
