Use a MANN or MAHLE filter. You can get them online for anywhere from $7-11.

Also do some reasearch on your engine oil, a lot of people like the "redline" synthetic engine oils and other people symply use mobil 1 syn. or castrol synthetic. If you are going to change your oil to synthetic from regular crude/organic oil do some searching on this forum. There has been a lot of discussion on this...

I've done a little research a while back ago about the filter technology on our type of canister filter... the bold fact that I ran into is.... they are all viturally made of the same stuff... same material.. same pass through volume.. only difference is... the rubber gaskets are made of a different solidity of rubber... stupid as it sounds.. there is not point in trying to find the.."best" filter.. been there done that... I use Fram.. or something like that....
