    Filters from gsf are more like £35 now and oil £15, which from what I can remember is about the same as genuine from TPS, you can usually get both together on eBay for 45 ish delivered.

    Most specialists will charge about £70 to do a oil and filter replacement, if you dont want to do it yourself.

    Oil change interval is every 20k and filter is every 40k if that helps.

    That must be trade price though surely? but even then the filter seems too cheap as they list it as £38 for filter and £15 for oil.

    Cheers guys. I've been looking on GSF and they are listing two different filters for my car. They look completely different! One is £38 and one £32.

    Give them a quick call or call your local TPS and give them your reg, they will give you the part number for it, so you can match it up then.
