Looks a lot like a Mann. Same white material for the ADBV as on my Mercedes. In fact, some Mercedes filters spec that zig zag pleated material, which they like to refer to as felt.

Boy, that center tube sure has a LOT of holes in it. I have often thought that other filters didn't seem to have enough holes in the tube to pass oil fast enough, but I must be wrong. Also, does that zig zag filter media mean that there is more media, or is it just a design.

In my opinon, yes. It has more filter media in a given space.
If you put a regular filter in some kind of press, you also end up with a smaller fillter with a sort of zig-zag paper. But for sure not so neat looking like Purflux.
