Hey fellas I've been a lurker on this forum for years and now finnaly created a account. Well back to topic. I've been searching for answers about the Bosch filters. I was previously told that it's a quality filter (stout can thickness and metal caps) But is this filter a good filter for 5k to 7.5k intervals? My dad and I would like to Stock up on some filters and now deciding if it's worth investing the money on bosch filters. Thanks
Bosch makes an excellent filter....and can do 7,500 without a problem. Its a clone of the Purolator PureOne. So you might look into a PureOne as well..... Check the Bosch website....there may be a rebate promotion going on.
Bosch makes a good line. Their basic filters can do 7500 miles, and their top-of-the-Bosch-line DistancePlus filters can go for 10,000 or even 15,000 miles (two oil change intervals) if driving conditions are OK.
Bosch Filtech (the black filters) are pretty decent filters, kind of like a Purolator PureOne, Bosch DistancePlus are outstanding filters, tough, efficient, just extremely well built. If you are interested in top of the line oil filtration, Distance+ would be on the top of my list. I have observed that they have more filtering media than their Champ Labs counterparts such as Mobil EP and K&N filters (when compared to like P/N's).

True ... but driving style is also a factor, even with an engine in good shape (ie, clean inside). If the car was used in severe service (ie, cold weather, short trips, dusty area, etc) then the oil and filter change interval should be dropped down accordingly no matter how good the filter is.
