Default FRAM air filter VS Denso OEM

Anyone have practical comparison between FRAM air filter and the Denso
17801-0D020 air filter for a Corolla?

I found a FRAM Extra Guard air filter for around $16 and my local Toyota
dealer is charging $25 for the OEM Denso version. Is it worth the $9
difference?

I'm not sure which OEM filter set you need, but I did a search on eBay for
TOYOTA OEM OIL FILTER, and the first his was a box of ten filters for $40.

Okay, search for TOYOTA COROLLA OEM OIL FILTER.

You can do better than the dealership, and get OEM stuff.

LOL -- I don't think the genuine Toyota oil filter would work very well
as an air intake filter.

You're probably right about that.

Perhaps my suggestion would have worked better if the search string was
TOYOTA OEM AIR FILTER, instead of OIL filter.

I actually ended up buying one on ebay yesterday just to compare quality.

Shipping charges to CDA was very reasonable, so it still worked out
cheaper than getting gouged locally.

I have always heard that while the Fram oil filters are crap, the air
filters are fine.

By the way... OEM means original equipment manufacturer, IE any air filter
made by Denso, whether or not it is for your car. You want the OE filter,
IE the one for your car.

The one time where removing a word/letter from an acronym makes it more
specific.
