Re: Sourcing Oil Filter 2012 3.6 V6
You are free to use whatever you want:
For these built in filter housings I always go OEM or an equivalent Aftermarket brand.
When I owned VWs I used OEM and if I bought the Aftermarket they were either MANN or HENGST and I think that HENGST is the current supplier for the pentastar oil filter.
When it comes to Screw on filters I have a few brands of choice
I went to my local dealer looking to buy some oil filters for both my JGC and they wanted 18 each. For the that price I was able to order a 6 pack from someone on ebay for the price of two locally.
The air filters seem to be overpriced though everywhere I checked they were at least 25 dollars each I am tempted to just buy a reusable filter and be done with it.
