Im almost due for a change and i need to order these from Colorado (www.rmeuropean.com). I would be doing a bulk order of 4 or 5 so i have them handy.

Ok so we got three choices:

1. HENGST (OEM) - $5.58 US
2. MAHLE-KNECHT - $6.65 US
3. MANN - $6.90 US

Shipping to Toronto would be $20 for 4 filters. So looking around $42-$45 US

So let me know what you guys think quality/performance wise.

I've used all three, and the construction and feel of the Hengst is way above the others. But who knows which filters better.

I've been using MANN for a couple of years just because I can get them easier than the others, and have had no issues with them.

I'm sure any of the three will filter extremely well, they're all great brands.

I don't stock up on filters, usually I place orders for other parts then add filers and other maintenance parts as filler to pad the total to get free shipping. I wind up with one or two kicking around without making any sort of effort.
