As I mentioned earlier most filters seem to be identical except for a WIX I ordered from Rock Auto a few years back. Rock Auto couldn't explain why the filter in my hand was different than the filter on their website but I still used it. What was weird was it was made in Jordan. I have never had an auto part from that industrial powerhouse before lol. The pleats on the WIX were not reinforced look most but it was some type of synthetic material. I switched back to Mahle/Mann on subsequent filters.
