I have been buying Bosch oil filters for my 2006 Mazda 3, with a 2.0L at walmart but they stopped selling them.

I’m thinking of just buying the OEM filter from Amazon and will keep buying my Mobile 1 from Walmart.

Does anyone have any knowledge if one oil filter is better than an other? Does it really matter on a normal daily driven car with oil changes about every 5,000-6,000 miles? I care nothing about cost, paying $5 for an oil filter is like not going to starbucks twice a year for a standard grande coffee.

Option 1: OEM for $12.44

Option 2 for $7.26
