The Smartstream G2.5T-GDi engine uses Service Kit-Oil Filter P/N 26350-2S000 which includes the canister paper filter, canister drain plug, canister gasket and oil drain plug gasket. You need an 8mm Allen socket to remove/replace the canister drain plug and a 27mm socket to remove/replace the canister cap. I use 0W-30 Mobil1 AFE in my 2.5T Sonata N Line engine.

Can’t find that mahle number anywhere
The ox1121d
Care to share a link?

It actually says that part number on the OE filter itself, but Mahle doesn't seem to be selling this filter in the aftermarket yet.

Also, Wix is going to offer this filter soon, too. Part number WL10473 (Napa Gold 100473)

OE all the way they are good quality filters and cheap. Make sure you change the crush washer evey single time. If you have a decent Kia Dealer, tip the parts guy, I did that and get a "shop" discount on all my filters and he gave me a bag of crush washers.
