Oil Filter?

This is a discussion on Oil Filter? within the CLA Maintenance / Care / Detailing forums, part of the Mercedes-Benz CLA Forum category; I'm wondering what oil filter is everyone using when they change their oil. Are you using Mobil1, OEM, Hengst, K&N, or other? Thanks....

    I guess I'm using OEM because I only bring it to the dealer for service.

    Unless I find an aftermarket element that filters better without changing rate and pressure I am sticking with the (pretty well made already) oem one from Mann

    OEM. I buy oil and filters from the dealership and then give them to the independent shop to use.

    Guys, while we are on the subject, how is everyone lifting their cars? I have a standard floor jack with two jackstands. What's the safest way to lift this thing so I can get down there and remove the cover to drain the oil pan? I have a fear of getting squashed by my car.

    Is what I have good enough? I am thinking about getting the jack stand pad from ebay. But from what I have read it's not for safety. It's for not damaging/scratching the bottom of the car at the jack point.

    Yup I got 4 aluminum jack point inserts ... presume the polymer ones will work though I aint taking my life in my own hands
    You may want to consider a vacuum oil extractor avoids any lifting and our oil filters point upwards anyway

    Ramps for everything I do under my car. Only time I jack it up is if I need to remove wheels.

    Would plastic ramps like these be acceptable?
