I assume that the oil filter on my 01 S4 will also fit on some car out there. How can I find out a comparable filter, eg.Fram or others, from one of the readily available outlets, eg. Kragens etc?

Fram does make a filter and its sold at many walmarts as well as other places. I believe the number ends with a 0019. Look in the parts alternitive thread at the top of the tech section. It also fits some pre 1996 harleys.

I used one and its complete crap and wouldn't recommend it. Its chrome, about 3/4 inch shorter than the original or K&N, costs $9 instead of $11 ($2 big whoop! ::) ) YMMV

The KN 153 is a good choice because it has a hex on the base for the simplest of installs and is thicker which offers better protection for its vulnerable position.
