Mahle makes Porsches filters.. They are identical and cost less.. Like White987 said... Porsche filters are pretty cheap through Suncoast or Sunset..

I have used Mann and Mahle with good results... both are German and/or OEM. Like Phillipj said, they are the same and cost less.

Just as a side note guys, this may be true with the oil filters for the 997/996....but I know for a fact this is NOT TRUE for the 993 oil filters.

      Changed my oil today. 2005 C2S with about 80000 miles. Been using DT40 for a few years. About 3300 miles (1.5 years; car was laid up about a year) on this oil change. Opened the oil filter case to inspect the oil filter medium. Saw a lot of fine black (oil soaked, of course) powder in the creases of the filter medium.  Non-ferrous (wouldn't stick to magnet, other than due to oil acting as "adhesive"). More than I've seen in the past. I've attached two pics here.

      What do you think? Source? Cause for alarm? Needs immediate diagnosis/correction?

      Recently picked up an oil filter kit (filter and gasket) for my 2014 Cayenne and wanted to share the part number for reference:

      Porsche Part No.: 958 107 222 10
      VW/Audi Part No.: 03H 115 562

      2014 Cayenne, 3.6L V6. NOTE - this is a VW manufactured engine.

      So i've been ordering my filters through suncoast porsche for a long time now, but i figured i would take a chance on one of my amazon orders. Here are some comparison shots:

      The short of it....looks like Mahle is one of the OEM suppliers of this filter. In case anyone was looking to save a few bucks. I change mine every 5-10k so i buy several a year. for 13 bucks and change.

      I cut open the oil filter on the 2000 Boxster, I did all maintenence on the car since 2004 and without cutting the oil filte and r consistently found yellow / amber sealant bits.
      When the filter was cut open I found many very small bits of amber sealant 1/64" at most and many back hard palstic bits, likely from the chain tensioners. The amount of both types of residue is far from enough to clog the filter. This is on a one year oil change on less than 5,000 miles, Mobil 1 10w-40 High Milage, the car has 94,000 miles.
      Not good, for many years both the bimmer motorcycle and car, both with plastic covered chain tensioners, never showed this problem. The good part is that there were no metal fragments on the filter.
