VW changed oil filter suppliers?

Does anyone have any thoughts on whether Fram Extraguard filters, that sell for maybe a quarter of what these OEM/German brands cost, is as good. I have been spending on VW OEM filters on my 2017, but wondering if that is justifiable.
Well.. the Honda engines with their Fram A02 filters on double oci's probably wiping out most German cars longevity with their mesh/wire backing afaik.. I prefer German cars but still there is this.

and if the engines are still good on some of the German cars, which many of them I am sure this is the case.. the question still goes to Honda with the very high mileage engines.. What negatives came from their many on double oci basic blue filters ??
