Which Oil filter

Belts, Plugs, Filters, Fuels, Oils, additives etc..... Told you this might morph into servicing and service items.

Thanks for the thoughts. I'd thought about the Mahle one first but couldn't seem to see it available anywhere when searching online :?

Maybe I need up up my searching game, or switch from Bing!

I've just ordered another Mann W920/21. Mann actually list them for the Excel / Esprit. I've been using them for several years and had no issues, oil pressure rises more quickly than previous Fram / PNM / SJ filters.

It has an anti-drain back valve:

The only difference from the W916/1 appears to be that the bypass valve opens at 0.8 bar rather than 0.9 bar. Lower has got to be better I would have thought, keeping the oil flowing, even if something catastrophic must have happened to block the filter?

It has one anti-drain valve but does not have the clean-side anti-drain valve. crs_20 tried one and found the slow oil pressure problem with it here:

Yeah, I'd read previously that the 920 took time to build up pressure, whereas people had said the 916 was building it up quickly. Looks like it's a case of YMMV, but I might give the 916 a try and see how it goes on my Eclat :)
