: Mobil 1 Deal at Kragen's

09-15-2008, 06:33 AM
So I went to Kragen's to see if they had any deals on Mobil 1, as it is time for an oil change. They had a coupon on their flyer that said to buy 5 quarts of any Mobil 1 oil and a Mobil 1 filter, and you get a special price on each ($4.99 for the oil and $9.99 for the filter), plus a $15 mail in rebate. So I look up my '91 E34 525i and it says the only Mobil 1 filter is a spin on type. The guy offers to sell me a filter for another car, so I can get the rebate, (net gain 5$), and he offers to sell the oil at the coupon price, which is a $3 savings off the extended performance 15W-50. I pass on the other car's filer, and get the Fram cartridge filter.

I wondered though, is their computer messed up, or are there 525i engines somewhere that use spin on oil filters?

The M20 did.
