If I were you, id buy a few OEM filters online or at ur local dealer and supply them to the shop you decide to have your oil change done at.
Do you have any actual knowledge on what brand oil filters to avoid?

Plain regular Fram's have a bad rep. in some circles. But what on the internet doesn't?

Keep in mind that nearly all new vehicles need a full synthetic oil change, ours needs it with B5 certification. Only a few oils like Pennzoil Platinum and Castrol full synthetics are B5 rated. The manual recommends Castrol.

Walmart is probably the cheapest place to get an oil change, and they want $50 for a full synthetic change. Keep in mind, that's probably with some cheap walmart full syn oil that comes in a large 50 gallon barrel, and their cheapest oil filter. The oil might not be B5 rated, and the filter might not be a good one.

The dealership charges $70, and you'll have a record of your oil change with genuine parts.

If you do your own oil change, it's about $25 for a 5 quart jug at walmart, and about $6 for an oil filter at the dealership. I buy my oil from the dealership because it's actually cheaper than walmart. In total it's about $31 in materials cost.

I think I read the Purolator white can, but I think I read that from either you or maybe @Old's Cool, so ...

I'd avoid any filters without a silicone ADBV - not b/c I think that is important, but b/c the filters with silicone ADBV tend to be better quality overall.

You're right, sorry I didn't read that this was for the 2.0 NA model, which can take GF4 or Higher conventional motor oil.

The 1.6T takes A5/B5 spec oil, which I can't seem to find in a conventional oil, only full synthetic.

For all their oil changes, including the turbo models?? Because that oil is only rated for GF-5, not A5/B5 with the 1.6T needs.

I've taken Fram filters out of the box and found big chunks of glue around the oil passages that flake off with my fingernail... seems like shoddy quality control to me. I just stick with Hyundai/Kia filters, they're easy enough to get on Amazon or eBay.
