Tamas, you took my statement wrong. My Genuine Honda Filter is $9. In total my oil change is $40 each time.

Do you know for a fact it does just as good of a job? Or is it just because what you can't see dos'nt hurt you. Put a honda filter and a fram side by side and just by looking at them, you WILL notice a quality difference. For an extra $3-4 each change, i really don't mind buying the better product.

The key is to stay off of them completely. The people who attempt to quit by gradually cutting down won't get anywhere. At least that's what the addiction model from my Economics of Gambling class says.

The first 2 weeks is definitly the toughest. After that, you will feel like puking everytime you think about it.

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)."
wow...thanks dude!

Use whichever filter you like. I'm just telling you after having a fram let me down, and then comparing the 2.. I'll only buy honda from now on.

scary thought. I could have died in a head on crash tonight when an asshole driver passed me on the shoulder, forcing me into on-coming traffic. There was another group of cars coming head-on at the same time. Both RCMP and ICBC are involved, you could say i'm not in a great mood.

I really hate it when people pass on the right, it is the MOST ignorant thing to do... When I didnt have my lisence and rode my bike i dunno how many times i almost got ran down because asshole peolpe are to fucking impatient to stop and wait instead of goign around and almost running over a person on a bike...
Pretty sure i was more afraid of getting run over on my bike than i was of getting in an accident driving my car... which really in this town is pretty sad that someone cant ride thier bike on a road with out having to watch out for thier own ass because some ignorant asshole in a hurry would fuck up thier day

DHD that sucks...same thing happened to me once...called it in the cops could have EASILY caught him (it was on a hwy...I was following him forever) but they didn't do fuckall. But when I go have some fun in the snow at 2am w/ nobody around they show up at my house...go figure.

oh and I hope I didn't sound snarky or whatever w/ my reply...I wasn't sarcastic...this thread IS making me reconsider my choice of filters

shitty deal, speaking of shitty drivers.. did you notice that dump truck and pup that decided to turn left in front of me at gordon & harvey? the fucker saw the oncoming traffic and just turned hoping we'd slow down for him.

Also, lately I'm ready to kill a few drivers in pickups who cut me off when changing lanes as if it's nothing.. with only inches to spare doing highway speeds... sketchy to say the least.
