2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion Discussion, First oil change in Cadillac CTS-V Series Forum - 2004 - 2007; I use the K&N mostly because it has the 1" nut welded on the bottom which makes for easy install ...
Steve Foley had a Napa Gold filter on mines. I'm glad I got under there and changed it. I've used the Mobil 1 since 2000 though. A co-worker and I cut the M1 and a Fram in half the seen the difference and we've used M1 filters since then. He has passed on since then, but I still use them.
I read this article.
1st of all I had to get over all the Toyota is Superior bull crap then when I actually got into the reading the guy actually concluded that the Mobil 1 was superior but he chose the K&N because it was $9.49 and the Mobil 1 for him was $11 and some change.
However, I've never paid $11 for a Mobil 1 filter. There at Autozone for $9.99.
I've bought them in TX, OK & KS for that same price. Do what you please, I'll get $.50 out of the couch or under the seats in the V and get a Mobil 1.
Yeah, our AC Delco filters our very popular. I was told most stores stock up on Mondays and Tuesdays and if I wait till Saturday, they'll usually be out.
Almost every car I have owned has used a filter common to a dozen other cars, so I can never find a filter for any of my cars. Which is why I have gone to ordering a dozen at a time off the internet. But it looks like the V will probably only need to be changed once a year. So not a big deal.
