Strange. I got oilpressure after 1 sec even when the car has been standing for a few weeks. Made in the EU doesn't say much though.

I get oil pressure after 1 sec after refilling with new oil.

You need to carefully listen to where the tappets are located.

But also an original oil filter is not going to solve any oil pressure problem IMHO. This is usually either worn bearings or worn pump gears. The bearings have a major influence as the pump can be delivering oil but leaking from worn bearings (crank shells, big end shells, tappets)
There are aftermarket oil filters out there that still do a very good job (FRAM are fine).

What oil did you say you were using?
Also can you ship the filters from UK if you want an original from the site I gave you?

Try a mechanical oil gauge test and let us know the results. Also these are the cheapest.
This is what I have as a muffler: Exhaust / JSV RACING PERFORMANS EGZOS 4652 at - 28780503

I know it's Turkish so it's not top quality but was the only option for me at the time...

Also where to find a capillary oil press gauge, I would prefer to have an original S1/2 33 oil press gauge!!! Does anyone sell one?

The only 33 with an oilpresure gauge is a S1 QV. It will not fit in your S3 dash so you might as well get a VDO etc.
