And what's your conclusion, from examining this filter? Doesn't look too bad to me - no bits of metal or even carbon .....  :027:

Only done 3000km, so I'd expect it to be looking pretty good!
I'd be interested to see how the internals compare with something like a Hi Flow, or K&N which seems to be the common alternative.

I am due for my next 6000 mile oil change in the next two weeks, I always fit a hi-flo filter, will see if I can get it apart and post some photos 👍

How are you getting them apart without getting a load of crud in the filter?
