Default Non OEM oil filters?

What's the census on non OEM oil filters? I found this in store Mighty M2901. Physically identical and fits well. Was listed as an alternative to the OEM LR filter I currently have in the 200TDI on mech database.

Certain Non OEM filters IMO are just as good if not better like the K&N Gold. It has a anti-drain back design which is what you should always use. Price wise it’s not cheap but I would never skimp on quality filters or fluids. You get what you pay for. I have a V8.
Do you drink cheap beer? Haha!

For my NAS rig, I heard (a long time ago ) the OEM filters were made by Wix. They also make Napa Gold filters. About 1/2 of LR Genuine, and available everywhere

I think they jump around with suppliers. Some of the boxes say Poland (Wix), Germany (Mann) or Austria (Mahle).

I have my doubts the Wix filters available in the states are manufactured in Europe since they have a few domestic plants as well. Does it matter? Probably not.

'probably right, as long as it has an anti-drainback valve. Also, as long as it has the same volume as the OEM filtersI've seen some cheapo auto parts store filters that, while they may fit, are 2/3 - 1/2 the size of the OEM filter.

I've used the K&N filters without issue myself. I like the nut welded to the top as well, nice when its time to take it off..

Agreed, that is all I have used for years with no issues whatsoever.
