      Hi folks,

      I was browsing through my Amazon wishlist the other day and noticed that the oil filter for pre-LPs I had bookmarked had been discounted by a whopping 73%.
      It went from $46.80 to just $12.64.
      I almost purchased one until I went on ebay and saw many more sellers offering these oil filters for even less.
      One of them is the known seller EverydayAutoparts with over 153250 reviews.

      Becaues I was skeptical I purchased only 1 to see what I would be receiving.
      Luckily (or unfortunately), I had just recently purchased 3 OEM oil filters at the "discounted" price of $48.50 each (normally $60.80) from one of the vendors on this forum.
      Today, I received the cheap aftermarket oil filter made in China to compare it closely to the OEM filter and wanted to show you the results:

      1. Both filters are the exact same size (Pic 1 & 2).
      2. The material of the filter feels exactly the same.
      3. The OEM filter has a metal strip inside of it which the non-OEM doesn't (Pic 3).
      I am not sure what the purpose of it is. It is not magnetic so it is not there to collect any metal shavings to give the technician clues about engine issues.
      Most people will just look in between the oil filter grills for any metal.
      4. The OEM filter weighs 81.16 grams vs. the non-OEM filter at 75.48 grams (Pic 4 & 5). This is most likely due to the metal strip of the OEM filter.

      After careful examination I cannot seem to find any major differences at all between the two.
      Both come with identical gaskets.
      Lamborghini doesn't make many parts anyways. They usually just sell them at a markup..

      Therefore, I decided to buy three 6-packs for a total of 18 oil filters.
      Since I do oil changes every 5,000 miles I am now covered for the next 90,000 miles which just about equals the rough lifetime of the engine.
      I paid $42.07 for each 6-pack so I ended up paying $126.21 plus $9.78 tax for a total of $135.99 for 18 oil filters!
      This brings the price of each oil filter down to $7.56 !

      I am not affiliated with the sellers of these oil filters on ebay or the ones on Amazon.
      I am just posting this if any of you want to take advantage of this current price drop.

      Thanks for posting this - I love a bargain BUT I'll stick with the dearer ones - just in case - just my 2 cents worth.

      Thanks for posting this - I too love a bargain BUT I think I'll keep away from the Chinese stuff - just in case - but thanks for letting us know!
