HORRIBLE filters.. My buddy and I just changed the oil on both our cars.. He went to put on the new BLUE oem filter, and screwed it on tight.. Normal as anyone would.. FIlled it up with 4.5qts of Royal PUrple.. Started the car, and drove about 20ft car was Spewing oil EVERYWHERE.. Lost over 2 quarts.. Shut the car off, pushed it back in..

Pulled the new filter off, and teh gasket had blown out almost halfway around the filter completely.. No it was not double ringed. Installed just as we used to with teh black filters.. STOCK UP!! I am going to subaru tomorrow with the defective one, see what they say.
