And you canít order one on the Internet?

Iím with barnstormer on this. The difference between an OEM and a lesser priced filter is about the cost of two cups of regular coffee at Starbucks.

Sorry that I don't meet your criteria. I'm more of a "do it now" kind of guy rather than an "order a few to have on hand" kind. My local auto parts stores always have on the shelf at least 4 different quality filters that are still innies. I walk in, grab the stuff and change the oil. It's not about about price to me, I never said it was. Its about being in my hand when I want it to be. Whether ordering one "on the Internet" or from a dealership, what's the diff? I'd still be waiting on a trivial part like a filter.

It's a generic part that can be had in numerous ways- there doesn't have to be a "do it my way" mentality about it.
