    Long Life oile filter

    Hey everyone.

    I was just wondering if someone could explain the difference between a standard oil filter and a "Longlife" one?

    When I went to pick up my service parts the parts assistant tried to give me one, but having never used or heard about them, decided to stick to the originals.

    Cheers.
