    I'm due for a change in the next few weeks, so I picked up one of the filters I regularly use for AWM oil changes: The Purolator L30257. Puro is a well-known brand, made in the USA, and seems to have a pretty decent reputation. I took it out of the box to look it over and noticed a black...

    SOLD! These are the large, "Big Kahuna" style for the 1.8T engine. They are Mann filters. All Purolator did was slap a white label with their part number on the Mann product (see pic). The car is long gone, but 4 of these are still taking up space on a back shelf in my garage. They'll be...

    Does any one have experience with the Purolator Pure PL20252? I was told this would fit my 2002 Passat 1.8t AWM but I have been unable to verify. Currently they have a $3 rebate that I would love to use. http://www.purolatorautofilters.net/promotions/Documents/OIL11_PUR_MetalWarsTEARFLY_03.11.pdf

They are yours for the taking if you can pick them up during normal weekday business hours at Keller Springs and the Dallas North Tollway. You also need to be punctual, I don't want to wait...

    I found one at Pep Boys, rebranded Mann w950. Wanted to verify it will fit the 1.8t and specs out ok. I have seen a few of you guys using it here. Also gonna run Castrol or Mobil 1 5w 30 which seems to be the closest to VW 502 spec. Any opinions there? (edit: yes I read the oil thread, just...

    I called my local parts shops and the L40316 is $20 everywhere. I called up the parts shop down the street and they don't even stock Purolator. They said they could cross reference the part number and find another brand that matches, and they came up with a K&N HP-3001 for $11. Does anyone...

    Advance Auto Parts is doing their Valvoline SynPower BOGO offer right now, all weights. If they don't have 5W40, you should be able to order it. Their TotalGrip oil filters (made by Purolator, per BITOG) are also BOGO. Never used it before, but BITOG reviews are positive. Don't know if they...

    Is a Puralator Oil Filter any good? And if I decide to change the filter does it mean that I have to drain out all the oil aswell? Thanks

    Hey guys i wanted to take advantage of Pep Boys sale on these Purolator Oil filter. I was just double checking if the Purolator L40316 (Manolator) will fit?? Looks alittle tight but i think it should fit. Just wanted to be sure before i bought them. Its for a 03 passat 1.8T.

    Has anyone else noticed that the "Mann-made" Purolator L40316 oil filter is now made in Argentina instead of Germany? I noticed only because I was having a bit more trouble than usual squeezing the new filter in between the oil cooler and the left engine mount. They changed the baseplate and the...

    I have the 1.8T and it was oil and filter time. I had been running the Napa 1333 and this time they were out. so I went to pepboys and got the Purolator L40316. Normaly they cost about half of what Napa charged. Today at Pepboys they have a rebate for $2.48 per filter and they are on sale for...

    I'm trying to find an online source for Purolator's cabin filter. I'm having no luck and no parts store in my state carries Purolator that I can tell. Thanks.

    Check the PepBoys.com website, fellas ... Not sure if it applies to the Mannolator (black) filters, but the white Purolators are on sale for $2.47 each ...and they have a $1.98 mail-in rebate. It seems stupid to jump through the hoops, but to get two Purolator filters for $0.98 (plus tax) is...

    Yesterday I picked up the Purolator L40316 oil filter that I ordered from Advance (they don't stock them so you have to order it and pay for it "in Advance" -pun intended-) and instead of giving me the usual German-made Mann filter, they gave me an actual Purolator, made in the USA and...

    So I went to Pepboys today to buy my oil filter due to the fact that my first oil change is coming up. I looked in the booklet they had there and it stated that I need the Purolator L30257 for my 2005 Passat 1.8T. So I picked up that one up. I went home and came online to find out that most...
