Oil Filters

Ive got to do an oil change on my partners newly aquired 147 1.6 ts, I havent got a alfa dealer in the same city as me, so it looks like an aftermarket accessories type. Are there any manufacturers oil filters I should avoid? In the past Ive just owned Vauxhalls and have used the geniune GM one from the dealers.

Im also planing to use GM oil as I can get this cheap and it meets all the high API, etc grades. It would be 10w40 Semi synthetic for the 1.6ts. Any reason I should use something else?

The oil should be fine providing it is API SL/SM

If you can't get a genuine filter I would get a Fram one.

Genuine filters can be had on ebay for around £5-6 including delivery on occasion.

They are very into mail order, if they don't have an ebay listing for any bit you need, send them an email for a price inc delivery to your door.
