Mann or Hengst. I believe the factory 4 cylinder filters are made by Mann, and the V6 Passat, VR6/V8/W8/TDI filters are made by Hengst.

hey everyone. yet another question im bringing to your wealth of knowledge.
My family changes our own oil all the time and have used different filters like bosch or fram and now mann. We used to have an 83 gti, and now have an 87 vanagan and an 01 WE jetta. i heard somewhere that all three VW's actually use the same filters. I also heard that the fram is not as good because something about it being wound too tight on the inner filters. This was followed up with the statement that VW's should use a german filter (bosch or mann). I guess my questions are: what filter does everyone use? has anyone else heard that fram is not as good? any advise?
thanks alot
