    Oil filters

    Is there a quality difference in oil filters. I was going to change my oil and filter but dont know whether there are "better quality" oil filters...

    I have a 2000 1.6 16v sxi. X16 XEL

    Thanks

    Dan Dan

    unless you have the inner torx sump nut which often gets chewed up then i would just renew the sealing washer

    Sump nuts are £2 of ebay, Worth getting if it looks a little chewed up!
