    I'm sure that there must be some decent quality alternative brands of filters out there, but I don't know which they are. I know where I stand with Honda, so I'm not prepared to waste time and money, plus run the risk of damaging the engine for a few pounds.
    The choice is yours, but be prepared to deal with the consequences.
    Additionally, if you are thinking of buying a used car that doesn't have genuine Honda parts on...:Whistle:

    Wasn't the OEM ones made by Fram, current one is made in France not sure who though, think its Purflex.

    For 3rd party I would be happy to use something like BluePrint, but the wrench size is too big for my tools or the genuine HAMP filter.

    Purflex France makes the petrol filters and Bosch Austria makes the diesel filters. However the 1.6 Diesel engine has a petrol type oil filter I don't know who makes that,I will find out .

    Why do people use HAMP aka Honda AfterMarket Part?, they are not the same as OEM Honda filters. its slightly lower quality other than the cool green colour its not better than the blue purflex filters.

    I'm sticking to OEM, mainly because I've still got almost a year's Honda warranty but even out of warranty, if the oil filter were to cause something catastrophic and could be proven then at least you've got some sort of recourse.

    Another warning for I-CTDI drivers: Forget MANN Filter Type HU718/6X !!! - it should fit, but doesn´t fit - it´s simply crap. The original Honda oil filter (part no. 15430RBDE02) is not expensive, fits and works perfect.

    The original Honda I-CTDI filter fits beautifully and since the pack also contains a new set of 'O' rings, it seals without a problem.

    Its 8 quid for the OEM filter for the CTDi - can't see any reason why to go for anything else.

    And sump plug washer/gasket! :Smile:

    Air Filters, however, are a different story. Seriously, what's with the price of OEM ones?!!!

    £22.50 for most, only £12.99 with club discount from Holdcroft, no joke. We've been loading them all into the Parts Store past couple of days :Smile:

    Almost £30 for an air filter in my car. It's showing as £27 in the HK Parts Store for an air filter in my car which is the same as the local Honda dealer. What would it come in as after the HK discount?
