Both of these filters look great.
How much do NAPA Gold filters cost?
My son changed the oil on his and my truck today. He knows that I like NAPA GOLD oil filters, so he bought one for my OCI. I had bought an FL-400S but will use it next OCI. He said he paid $7.49 + tax.
One thing about the Mahle filter I wanted to bring up. I only had it on the car less than a year, but the outside looked like it has been there a decade. The nitrile flap is not very pliable again like it was super old.
The oil last time was replaced by a very busy Porsche indy when they did some work for me. I'm wondering if I got an old stock filter. It will be 6 months to a year before I change oil again, I'll be able to compare details at that time.
