Used this filter on my Maxima's dying VQ35DE for approx. 10k miles with Supertech conventional 5W-30 plus other cheap 5W-30s used to top off every ~300 mi. I was expecting to find this thing pretty chewed up on the inside, but was pleasantly surprised at how it held up. Pleats were wavy but the media was solid, no tears or anything else noteworthy. Nitrile ADBV was also softer and more pliable than I thought it would be. According to the date code, this filter was assembled on Nov 9, 2016, I installed it in Jan 2018, and removed it Sep 2019. Cut it open this weekend along with the Tear-o-lator taken from my Mazda on its first oil change (will be posting a C&P of that one also).
