pattern parts - nick floyd
My car is a 91 1.6 Astra which has covered 76000 miles. I change the oil regularly and was wondering what the difference is between a filter costing £2 from a local motor factor and either a champian filter from Halfords or GM from Vaxhaull. As the filter is only on the car about 3 months would it make any difference?

Dear Nick,

Never buy a pattern oil filter. You might save £2 and wreck your engine. But do by all means buy a cheaper oil filter made by the same company (such as Fram) which makes them for the manufacturer.
