Re: Oil Filters, Bosch vs Purolator
Anybody know the difference between the Bosch 72161 and the Bosch 3331? Except for the obvious 68830 Bosch's? When I did the oi change I searched the forum for Bosch and came up with the 3331. It seems now that most are using the 72161? Did I do a Bad?
The black coating on the filter is either paint or powder coating and I guess that one just needs to either be comfortable with the coating not causing problems or use the BMW filter exclusively. The filter that came out was a BMW and was screen printed. I doubt the material used to put the information on th3e filter was ink but appeared to be yellow paint. True the filter is not coated in paint but there is a small amount of paint on the filter none the less Loren
