Default Oil Filter

This filter is not disposable.You can take it apart and clean it up plus it has magnets so that means that it cleans your engine from normal wear or friction.

















The bad news is the price ~$250 for Subarus

Me too. At $10/per OEM filter, that's 25 oil filters, or roughly 75,000 miles @ 3000 intervals before you'd see any return on spending $250 for that one.

$7 for an oil filter = 35 filters or 105,000 miles @ 3000 intervals.
anyway wouldn't it be easier to just replace the filter instead of taking it apart and cleaning it?

Does this filter have any other advantages...like it filters out smaller particles than the OEM one, the bypass spring is stronger, or it can hold more dirt?

There is a reason factory oil filters don't have magnets and the oil filter drain plug doesn't have one either like the trans fluid. Anyone that insists you need one for engine oil has some snake oil to sell.

(The parts of the engine that wear are non-ferrous)

This is the answer I've been looking for!! I've always asked myself during an oil change, "Self, is there a way I could make oil changes MORE messy and overly complicated and not be absolutely sure the filter is installed properly?"

Thank you soo much!!!

end sarcasm and +1 for OEM filters....

If you want something that will work better than stock, try a Canton Mecca. $100 for a cast aluminum filter housing. Replaceable filters at something like $10 a filter. The filters can last for 10,000 miles, and have no bypass valve. I thought it was a worthwhile investment.

It's hard for me to follow the Babelfish translation, but this appears to be a purely magnetic filter. So, it'll only filter out ferrous (iron) debris. It won't filter out anything else at all. Did I miss something?

Also, the no used filters in the landfill thing is nice, but where do you put the rags or paper towels you use to clean the thing? In the landfill. And what about anything you 'wash' off of it?

This looks like a major gimmick to me, and a poor filter besides.

I agree. With all news cars I have had I just stay OEM. It's just easier and 250 is pretty spendy for an oil filter.

i dont see ANY reason y u should buy something like that or spend money on expensive oil filters. as long as u maintain ur car regularly, there shouldnt be any problem.....unless ur a hardcore racing maniac.

..& bypass filter equipped filters = less chance of oil starvation when you need it most. Does anyone know when or what pressure the bypass occurs, I have a feeling its more frequent than everyone thinks.
