One thing to consider on filters, make sure to get the filter for the car/engine. Some of the filters for newer cars have the bypass relief valve in the filter housing and as a consequence the filters do not have a bypass valve in them. I saw this first hand on the display at my local Auto-Zone. All my wheels, except the 1.9 Opel engine use Frams, all with over 150,000 on the odometer. I blew the seals on two Frams on the Opel, so I used Purolators on the Opel engine.

If my memory hasn't gone too far south the 10028 Purolator is the correct one for the Opel 1.9 engines, but then I haven't changed the filter in over 8+ years when I blew the engine and parked the car. It may behoove you to double check the part number with the filter catalog just to be sure.
