Im lookin for a good oil filter for my bmw. Im thinking about getting a Spin-Flow Filter, but I need some feedback on it. I know that NAPA makes the best so Im not worried about its quality, but I would like to hear other peoples opinion on it Oh, there is also some instant win contests running. I found everything at the links below. Check them out, the sites are pretty cool!
http://www.napafilters.com/nselect/
http://winningspinsweepstakes.com/

sum info on the filter...
Spin-Flow is an new oil filter by NASCAR Select that has special flowing fins that
channel oil through the filter to eliminate turbulence and direct large particles down and away from the filter media to improve oil flow and filtration efficiency.
In traditional oil filters, oil rushes directly into the filter creating in-filter turbulence that restricts flow through a significant portion of the filter media.
That means the oil has to work harder to filter through approximately 60% of the media. That's very inefficient. By comparison, the NASCAR Select with Spin-Flow performs at maximum capacity and efficiency, which leads to a better-performing engine. In the NASCAR Select with Spin-Flow, angled fins channel the flow of oil as it enters the filter. Oil circulates through the entire filter directing large particles down and away from the filter media resulting in the efficient flow of oil and a minimum of turbulence.

buy it and let us know how it goes.

this most likely doesn't belong in product reviews... maybe bimmertalk or in the section for the car you own.

yeah, this isn't exactly a review. I'll move it somwhere. Also, are you sure you can use this with a BMW? Few BMWs have actual oil filters you replace like other cars, but the BMW oil filter is a drop in filter that goes into a permantent housing, rather than the housing and filter be combined like most cars.

I don't see how this design would work with a drop in filter.

kedia_82 is an unknown quantity at this point
been using the spinflows for two months now and they rock! been leary
of using a compound to remove slug on my ole 84 but i put one ran it
hard for 250 - 300 miles with fresh oil change and was really curious
as to how it would look inside. So i put one on my mercury capri xr2
turbo (background info this car has been sitting in the same spot for
3 years) put a rebuilt head on it and ran it the other 250-300 miles
home) Oil look like it was new (I knew that was impossible right)
Still curious it cut the damn thing open with a grinder. If you could
see the crap that rolled outta that thing. Thought i was gonna need
a oil flow flush of the engine but i am impressed. I swapped out a
advance filter cause i forgot curiosity costs. But payday is next
week and I think it will pick up a few more when i got back to pick
up my bmw
