Here are 3 photos. One is a fram air filter for our car. The other two are crossland and mann. This is taken directly off the Eurocarparts website and to be honest I usually find their photos pretty damn spot on for things like filters. Not to mention I have seen the Mann one in person and its exactly like that. The Fram one has the brand name on!
I know which one looks terrible just from the lack of filtration material!

Genuine Alfa one is manufactured by Mann & Hummel - its available for £6.99 including postage in original Alfa box.
I cant imagine I would want to spend less.
Including the new oil cartridge plastic screw top for the housing is £15.00.

Crossland isnt what it used to be either, thats Eurocarparts own brand stuff now. AFAIK they bought the name and have reduced the quality

Yeah I would usually go mann or mahle for filters but i was doing the oil change on a fri nite in work and had the wrong filter only realising after dropping the oil out. Didnt want to drive about for a few days without the undertray and the fram one seemed a better option on a sat morning insted of a crossland one.

Do you have the part number for the plastic screw top ?

...and there you go. Look like the same crap Fram that they get in the USA. Like I said, I'd change that filter of yours out tonight, not tomorrow.
