    oil filter

    i've been to my local nissan dealer today to get an oil filter,as i'm hopfully getting my car's oils done this weekend.
    Anyhow what a bunch of muppetts ! They did not know what my car was, not even sure of sr20det engine
    tryed to explain 200sx they werent even sure what a s14 was !
    eventully i got an oil filter off them,

    What i want to check is have they given me the right one ?
    part number 15208-9F600 its for almera N16E
    I'm hoping its a filter for almera gti as its the same engine without the turbo.

    My local dealer is like that Can't do anything without a VIN... Though they probably know Renaults inside out. Its for that reason that I always use West Way in Basingstoke. Warren knows the cars well and even has a note of my chassis number on the wall over their phone


    That's the right filter. Fits loads of things, from Almeras too 350Zs...

    The results of the SXOC oil research have proven that the OEM filter is fine, as is a 6000k mile oil change.

    I use FRam ones but not the one that is on the FRam book cuz they are bit big so I did some research and found a right sized one. its just as same as genuine nissan one but its lot less of price. Still good quality tho
