Oil filters perform a critical task in maintaining your engine's integrity. It is their job to catch and filter any foreign debris present in your crankcase, this can be tiny metal particles which are caused as a natural part of your engine's operation, or dirt/sludge that is dislodged as your engine is operating. Manufacturers, particularly European manufacturers, are very specific on the type and construction of the oil filter used in their vehicles. While you can go to any automotive parts store and get a filter that will fit, it may or may not be up to the specification of the manufacturer.
The service technician at Foreign Autohäus of El Dorado Hills are familiar with the various specification set forth by the manufacturers, and use Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts to ensure this critical component meets the specification for your vehicle.
