Also, I'm surprised that the Synthetic model isn't the most efficient. Where did you get that information?
To add to the confusion, Purolator's own web site ( says they don't have a current model of oil filter that's compatible with our Imprezas. Their compatibility chart says "Not Available - Availability To Be Announced."

So this makes me continue to wonder about the 14459 filters' compatibility with our Imprezas.

I guess I can't blame Amazon for saying the 14459 isn't compatible, since that agrees with Purolator's own data.
