On an interesting note about filters, a couple of oil changes ago I used a Hengst filter, I usually use Mann. I found that the filter didn't seal properly although it was well-tightened and as a result the leaked oil. Interestingly the seal was visually OK, the leak only occurred under pressure. Since then I have not deviated from Mann filters.
