Just going to do an intermediate oil change.
Which oil filter do we recommend, any of these or OPC filter?

OPC filter is probably one of these.

20%off at carparts4less to using MID20.

We all do silly things/make mistakes, it's how we deal with them that sets us apart from animals and Americans.

I've used the Mann filter and obviously the genuine ones are fine but you need to be aware some of the cheaper ones don't have the internal spines and can collapse causing issues.

Yep, whilst focussed more on american brands. It tells the story of being cautious ! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iTNJLEV8CG8&t=470s
