    Repco/Ryco oil filters

    Anyone had/heard of problems with these oil filters? Just got a Repco one for my BKD and have just been told they can have issues collapsing and I should stick with OEM or Mann...

    Heard similar things. But don't have any experience with them. Are they that much cheaper than oem?

    It’s not that they’re cheaper - just easier to get. I wanted to service this weekend and repco were the only one that stocked a filter to fit in town. Otherwise it’s a 140km round trip just for a filter

    Stick with the better ones I used to use Ryco years ago until I cut a Toyota one and a Ryco one apart . Never bought another Ryco

    Put your oil change off until next weekend and order your filters from these guys: Oil Filter HU719/7x MANN-FILTER for Audi Skoda VW | Run Auto Parts They stock all the OEM brands like Mann, Hengst etc. The filter linked above is apparently the correct one for a 2007 Golf TDI. I found this place 3 or 4 years ago and have been buying all my filters from them since.

    Alright I’m sufficiently offput - going to return the repco today. My wife is now going to Bathurst tomorrow so will pick up a filter from VW, turns out it’s $10 cheaper than Repco trade, wtf...

    Runauto look good but just done an order with eurorevolution he seems like a good bloke that knows what he’s talking about. Very good prices too

    I'm not one to bag products usually. But any dramas I have at work it's with Ryco . Mk6 GTIs in particular. The threaded section stays in the filter housing and the contents of the filter run down the alternator. Must be 75 percent of them do it.

    Other Ryco inserts all look like they've been sucked in. They don't hold their shape. Not sure of its a bad design or they just don't flow? Mahle, Hengst, Mann .
    All cheaper than Ryco in my experience too.

    I had that happening as well, absolutely hate it. Plus, they’re made in China and I’m very picky now.

    Nice prices there at RunAuto, what about their oil?

    I've switched to CASTROL EDGE 5W-30 LL now as it is the only one I have found to not burn off, I never have to top it off between yearly changes.
