    I bought an OEM one, same one as above, - they are cheap, only around £10 from any Honda dealer, less through HH

    don't forget to replace the 3 O ring seals when changing out the oil filter. Be sure to lube them up a bit first as well with oil before putting them in place.

    It can be a messy job, but well worth it. I always gave everything a good clean when the filter was out. I have to have a clean engine bay.
    Also, don't over tighten it when you put it back-very easy to do with this tool.

    During the 7 years / 90k miles I've owned my car, I must have changed the oil filter at least ten times. I've always simply undone/tightened the filter housing by hand and never once needed a special tool. I say this only in case anyone thinks a special tool is absolutely necessary!

    Make sure the largest 'O'-ring goes into the correct (furthest/highest) groove, as it is possible to fit it into an incorrect place...

    Oil filters should really be torqued on. Leave it too loose and you risk it coming loose, tight it too much and you're squashing the rubber seals.
    This is where the above tool comes in handy.

    Well yes, technically that would be true of any oil filter on any car, or anything with a compressible seal.
