2014 Veloster Turbo * Ironman Silver * Style & Tech Pkg * MBRP Catback
I feel exactly as you do on this subject. I got 6 oem filters on Amazon for like 30 bucks or something close. There's not much of a price difference and I think your car will benefit in the long run.How much is 'a bit more expensive'? You can buy in bulk on Ebay for cheaper if needed or $6 at the dealership. Let's say you change your oil 4 times a year, if you save $3 per oil filter if you go non-OEM you save only $12 per year....is it worth it to not get the OEM one?
To answer your original question there was study done on the OEM filter and it actually came out to be a good filter. I will see if I can dig it up.
