Ok so after doing my first oil change I have came up with some more questions.

Oil filters, in the manual it says to use only nissan filters (of course it does) but the reason is because they have a valve that keeps oil in the engine for cold starts. On :cough: XOC I read that all after markets that are designed for replacement will have the same properties and in fact my filter did mention this as one of the benefits. Is this truly the case that all filters for the X should have this valve/gasket?

Anyone use filter magnets? Do they help, are they worth it? Have heard good things about them but not sure as I haven't heard of many people using them.
