I posted that TSB because I think people should know that info! Do you agree?
Thou I did not buy my last case from you. Your price quote is almost dead on for the $5.95 I did spend for 6 or was it 10 in a case?. Any way 6 at $4.95 plus $5 shipping is $5.78 each. 10 would be $5.45. SO if that is so I would throw my business to you in MI rather then CN for $.20 more. Just out of basic your a member of the forum at the very least. Why buy aftermarket really. Honestly WALMART has three FRAM versions for the 26300-35503 (my dealer here $10.15 with drain gasket). One is cough cough $2.95! one is $6.52 and one is $10.15 last I looked. Are we all that stupid?

I got two cars that use them too so I go thru them quicker. Case lasts me a two years? And I know my oil is CLEAN! with 3-4 month/3500-4500 filter changes and top ups. And 12+-/12.5K-15K full changes. And yes I use 5w20 SYNTH in both. Have used that sched for YEARS too on many many vechs. For sure on the 1966 MkII 3.8S Jag.
For those that care and and are interested it was NOT a MkII 3.4/3.8 nor a often mistaken for 420. It was a 66 MkII 3.8S which was windshield forward a HO 3.8L S package model and windshield back a longer then 3.8wheelbase 420 model. Much cleaner smoother and sleeker lines even with the factory delete of troublesome wire rims. British Bone White with Oxblood was killer. The big cat was a sleeper. Unless you forgot to hit the switch over switch for the twin 9gal tanks. Then twin DRY SIDEDRAFT SOLEX 45's were a thing to behold. NOT! worst yet were the triple SideDraft Solex 38's on the 420 and 4.2 in the E-type.

P.S. Do the math. Thats only $15.70 ($35.70) more for FIVE MORE. Not $40 for two either.
That option just became, correct as you can see too right, before MY only option was what I listed.

Its not every month, its every week or 2 lol.

I wish it were per month.

I never stated I buy my filters at walmart, the only statement made about walmart was their cheapy super tech I mentioned, who would use that lol.
I usually use napa gold filters. Not saying they are great but I get that at shop price, at just under 2 bucks I cannot go wrong. Used these in all my cars for the last 5+ years, never had any isssue with even noise.

Well yes in a way. But I have been buying mine for six years since the 2004 Sorento was bought in 2007. First MD then CN and now I will be with cobra259 in MI. So the option did not just fall out of sky with him. But point taken if for you it did.

P.S. All the more reason for you to buy BULK then right? But that is just me and IMHO.

I am sorry me bad, I never said you did. I was merely sighting what other looney tunes have said in past about WALMART having excelent aftermarket QUAILTY FRAM filters. As you see that is HORSE CRAP and I can prove six way from sunday and did. as the only filter cheaper then OEM is the very funny and questionable $2.95 2X (aka a Scott Tissue) one. Not the $6 4X (aka a Kotex) nor $10 6X (aka maybe close to OEM spec) one as they call them these days. FRAM marketing is great do you not think?

NAPA GOLD is WIX. But a $2 NAPA GOLD? hummmm sounds fishy to me too. they are giving you a hell of a deal then if so. NAPA here quoted me the one time I was there $9.56 for the NG1334 or 1334NG (wix is 51334) cross for the 26300-35503 I use since 2007. and with the dealer again $10.15 with gasket you do the math and such for buying OEM still.

Changing your oil every two weeks? Yuck. If I were you, I'd switch to synthetic and extend that range to 5 weeks. How do you even find time to change it???

List price is 5.19 Part Number: FIL 1334
Product Line: NAPA Gold Filters
On their website.......

Checked receipt, I am way off, its right under 4 a piece.

Nothin fishy, napa gold box, napa gold stamped on filter, what more, I know the napa I am hitting is not stamping them themselves with something else. Maybe it also helps with friends discount that works their, friends shop I use his discount (good friend) and buying bulk? I guess this is a matter of where you are since your oem's are cheaper than mine, vise versa on the napa gold.

Hell if you knew someone at walmart with their discount you could probably pick up that 2.xx fram for under 1 dollar .

Ill take a pic of the new filter I install this weekend or next.

And if like mentioned somewhere in this post, Wix makes Kia OEM filters AND NAPA gold filters, can't be a big difference.

It only takes 15 minutes of your weekend. Get up, shoot outside, done before 7am

Just about 200 miles a day for me, 35 for the wife, x5, sometimes 6 if I go to the parents on day on the weekend.

I really don't care what other use for filters. I just see no reason not to use the OEM filter kits in these cars.
I dont see why not, if it DOES, meet ALL the requirments that are needed, which they do or they COULD and WOULD void warranty for use, Its like using the wrong tranny fluid then it goes. They ask for receipt, shows wrong fluid, VOIDED. Why is this any different than that? If this dont meet this spec, or this dont meet their spec, how is their a difference, if it is totally true. Not that there are not junk filters, their are, but their are also good ones,
MY point here.

So a K&N would not be as good as OEM either. I see here, there is nothing that can compair to OEM.
I disagree. They do not have some magical filter, it would have its own patent, which it does not. Its not that different from good ones, than this is stating.
Put the junk ones aside.
You also say the "craftsmanship" of the Korean ones are way better. Come on, look at all the stuff that comes out of the far east, really. If thats were your saying they come from.
Theres a lot of crap that comes from that region, because its CHEAP.
