  • any experience with Mobil 1 oil filters?

    Saw this at advanced auto parts, wanted to know if anyone has used it?
    I always feel sure oem parts are good, but the oil filter for the E30 M3 is over 25 years old
    and technology has progressed a great deal in that time
    so maybe some of the newer filters are much better

    Been using M1 filters for years now. No different than any other filter. Just spin it on. As far as it's ability to keep the oil clean, I am sure it does a good job.

      Should be good.. Just purchased their filter and some 15w-50, cannot see why it wouldn't be comprable effectiveness to OEM..
      One letter. One number. One legend ///M3.

        I have used the Mobil 1 filters a few times....if I am out of OEM and they have them at the local parts store. I dunno, my motor didn't blow when I was using them, but what sort of evaluation is that? How does one know?

        Somewhere I read a comparison of various filters....and IIRC the Mobil 1 was a higher quality filter.

          Study as of 2010 ranked Purolator ahead with Mobil 1 not far behind. That being said, my personal choice has always been OEM or Mobil 1.
