Should be about $20 when it gets to Canada then! Will have to keep my eye out and cut one open for observations...

Seems like time for them to make something a little more between the orange can and the other filters that are higher end. Maybe they are reading things on BTOG............

That could be rather painful. Oh, and what are you going to do about seeing the new Fram filter?

Yeah when you're from up here you are used to being bent over regularly for things... Maybe that's why we have same sex marriage up here?

If it wasn't bad enough to get it from the retailers/manufacturers we get it from our Government too... Every angle you are getting #@!$ royally! I love my country but stuff like this really makes me angry, so I just jump in the car head south of the border 40 minutes away and sneak stuff back over the border.
