    I fitted my last filter, and for some reason I must have used way to much force putting the new one on, as could not get the dam thing off. Ended up hammering a 1/4 drive extension through the filter to get it off.

    I've always used the larger filter, as I was told to use this one by the dealer. They said if most of your driving is in and around town then use the smaller filter, and mainly motorway driving use the larger filter. Not sure there is any truth in what they said but my engine has got 230K on the clock and still runs fine.

    Put the original filter. The system is calculated on it.

    wtf? its a filter....

    The larger filter used on the transporter and some other deisel engines has identical specifications, its just bigger.

    I'm not really sure i see the point of changing it myself, i'd rather use the normal one and change the oil every 5k, but if your leaving the oil in for longer, the bigger filter is certainly not going to be a bad thing.

    Same here, I cannot see how extra oil in a filter could do any damage. I've been running them for over 100,000 miles and never had a problem. when you say the engine is calculated on an oil level, there must be almost a 1Lt of oil between max & min. so if you have the oil at the mid point on the dip stick, and you are running the larger filter which is running say an extra 300-400ml of oil more then what is the difference?
