Just read reports about fake OEM car parts in Australia.
The parts are sold to independent workshops that may not be aware that the parts are fake and could pose a safety issue or in the case of oil filters engine damage.

Border security have seized many parts in joint operations with overseas countries and car companies have taken action against the retailers.

This does not mean parts supplied by legit companies that meet OEM requirements are a problem and should be purchased with confidence. However some copies are so good experts can be fooled.

Various parts were tested and failed including oil filters.

It may well prove to be safer to Purchase oil filters from a Hyundai dealer or well known parts supplier and if using an independent repair shop, supply your own parts.

Google fake auto parts for more info.
