    Oil filter media

    In researching oil filters for my CX5 I see that WIX makes a filter specifically for our CX5s. I also notice that thee media is cellulose rather than a more expensive and possibly better synthetic blend or all synthetic. I am interested why Mazda has not upgraded to the more "upgraded" media.

    I use the Wix exclusively. That said I've read how someone opened up the OEM lower tier filters and they were as good as the Wix in terms of construction. The made in Japan OEM filters are superior but harder to source.

    I wonder if the newer OEM filters are still using cellulose media or have they be upgraded?
