I got the NAPA Platinum filter for $12 and change. It's their top level filter made for synthetic oil. NAPA's propaganda claims that it filters 100% better than their Gold series filters. The filters are made by Wix so I know they're good filters. I'm a bit OCD about my vehicles and I'll pay extra for synthetic oil and better filters. I figure if I'm in the middle of nowhere I don't want the engine taking a dump on me because of a $4 oil filter.
