for my changes prior to new jobskie, i paid very close to $50 for honda filter and amsoil. but honda carries royal purple, so i may switch to that cuz itll be alot cheaper

must be nice, costs me about 50-60 per oil change, but then again i pay just about 15-19$ for a cartrage style filter. but the up side is i can change my filter more often then i change my oil!

BMW recommends oil changes every 10,000kms when running bimmer fluids. not sure how i feel about that.


running 8L of synthetic oil gets a tad pricey tho.

ya i dont know how much i like that idea. im still going with every 6-7k aswell.

one things i can say tho, even with the relatively high Kms on my car, from what i can see thru the oil cap with a flashlight, my head is CLEAN. ill get a better idea when i do my valve cover gaskets in the next little bit. and the car has had all maintenance up untill i bought it done thru bimmer, including oil changes at the designated times.

I had to change my oil every 8,000 km to keep in the good books of Toyota warranty...but it is still recommended that you do it every 5k. 8k is just the absolute maximum in order to keep your warranty valid.

It may be "just" a Honda Danny, but personally I really don't like it when those gay square cut Fram or similar gaskets burn to the block. Or when the gaskets break... Or for the fact that 90% of Filter makers use paper in their filters.

The Honda filters have a better filtration rating than most, are'nt made of paper inside, have a rounded gasket that is fused to the filter, and are smaller with different passages promoting better oil pressure. A Fram once failed on me and dumped 4 litres of oil all over my cement. I don't mind buying a better filter each time.

but craig theres almost a 3$ difference!!!!
seriously when iyt comes to maintenance i dont fuck around, because we ask our cars to put up with ALOT of abuse. myself especially, so i go for broke on the top of the line oil and the best filters i can get. which prove to be OE honda. ive seen tonns of links but really im way to lazy to go find them. i jsut now that i ask my car to rev to 8600 rpm daily. and the oil and filter combo i use, keeps me not smoking and keeps my internals looking dandy. this isnt some shitty talon that burns so much oil youd go under if you put real oil into it

40 for a filter??? eek....

No, I wasn't using used oil...Wal Mart had 10dub30 for like 10-11 bucks for the longest time (Castrol GTX/Quaker State) and Fram filters for my truck are like 3.87 a pop....

hmmm I love my Fram...for filtration they're rated at like 96% single pass/99% second pass or whatever the hell it was....all I remember is that it was pretty much unbeatable. The Frams I buy also have the rubber gasket fused to the filter and I've never had a problem with them fusing to the block....and they have the handy-dandy grip!

Well mr so and so uses the binford 5000 filters.... I'm pretty sure they know what they're doing.

Oh ya.... and they use HAMP filters.

You won't leak 4L through the filter unless the car was running.... and if it was running it'd die before all 4L could come out.

it was running! and when the oil light came on, I shut it off. Maybe not all 4 litres, but with the drain bolt out very little came out.

I never said they were bad filters or that either Craig or the N1 cars didn't know what they were doing. I was simply implying that, for real world applications, my 3.87 Fram filter does just as wonderful of a job as a 40 dollar Honda OEM.

Besides...I'm pretty sure that running a Fram for 4000 is better for a car than a 40 dollar Honda OEM for 6200.

Truth is that most filters are excellent and the difference comes in at how often you change your oil.

untrue. have you seen any of the tests done on oil filters? many filters fall apart before 5000kms potentially causing more harm than good. ive heard fram filters are quite restrictive too.

my old bike only saw K&N filters while i owned it. and for $17, i think thats quite affordable. the new one will get Honda or K&N filters aswell with Motul 5100 oil after break in. with an engine spinning above 15,000rpm, a good filter with super clean, quality oil is very very important.

heres a good article:

http://www.corolland.com/oil-filters.html

good note about the Fram:
"This filter appears to be the lowest quality of the group. But it is one of the most expensive of the group too, I guess marketing costs are pretty high here. The cardboard end-caps for the filter element, the cheap plastic by-pass valve and the flimsy anti-drainback valve will make me stay away from this filter.

Any of these filters would work for me except for the Fram ExtraGuard, I just don't care for it as they seem to have made to many compromises to lower manufacturing costs (read questionable quality)."
