It is really annoying that the aftermarket must solve an OEM issue, especially on this type of car. It is also annoying that a "premium" Mann German made filter experienced this type of failure. Unacceptable really.

I just bought a Mobil 1 brand oil filter for the 4C and for what it's worth the core is metal. Very traditional looking filter.

Not sure, if the filter has been redesigned or if mann is even still the OEM provider but I stumbled upon some new photos of the filter and there's no sign of Mann manufacturing on it, not sure if the internals are still the same or not. I wouldn't be able to tell.
