Why use High Quality Oil Filters?
Is an Oil Filter, just an Oil Filter?
There may not be a better way to protect that expensive BMW engine by following, (at minimum) the BMW scheduled oil service intervals. At our business, that will always include a high quality, German made oil filter. Not all filters are created equal. Of course, oil filters are sold cheaply at every big box parts place and even some hardware stores!
Why risk a major expense that could result from errant oil filter “stuff”, due to a cheap, poor quality oil filter? An inferior cheap filter may deform upon installation resulting in the passage being obstructed and basically, the oil not being filtered! The cheap oil filter media may also come apart or disintegrate causing additional issues.
Specific for your BMW, (or MINI), the quality German made oil filter is going to protect your BMW from engine contaminants and debris that can wear, and/or result in damage to that beautiful engine.
It would be more profitable for us to use the cheap stuff, (and profit does sound pretty good right now)! But, that is not the way we have been doing it for the past 29 years plus. We aren’t going to start now and hope that you won’t either, just for the sake of a few dollars.
Happy Spring and enjoy your ride!
