Believe it or not some filters ARE better than others. No guys I'm not a Troll starting some BS thread on which filter is best. Over the years there have been some independent tests of filters. Don't think the Purolator One's were the best but up near the top. Fram's were bad and those reusable Scott filters were terrible. I just posted because I was P.O.'d with the Bosch. If you could get it to fit, it should be a good filter. Since Henry Ford started assembly lines a couple of companies have figured out how to make parts "fit" what they were supposed to "fit." K&N had an issue with that and fixed it. Seems like the Bosch boys are having difficulties with the concept.
