The rust looks to be outside the O-ring, so was probably rusted after installation on the vehicle.

35503-26300 = 9203 NOT 3650
I almost forgot about that Yinzer sense of humor.

I paid $5.50 each at Oscaro. BTW the total OCI time was 8 months, but the car was in storage for 4 months over the winter.

35503-26300 would be the Hyundai/Kia part number for the OEM filter. These OEM filters are my favorite, but they're pretty pricey unless you buy them in bulk (gets down to $6/filter). I personally would trust them up to 10K miles, definitely can handle the 7,500 mile OEM OCI.

40 for $100 sounds like counterfeits.
