Wix might be pricier but from what I’ve heard they’re very good quality. I cut open a oem subaru filter and it’s very comparable to a fram filter. Lots of cheap components. But it does have great filtration properties and I’ve never seen an issue with the owl subaru filter. I own a dealership and have sold hundreds of subies. Oem is just fine. Wix is probably finer
I believe the Nappa Gold filters are rebranded Wix filters. I have always used Wix filters on all my Subarus. They have bypass valve rating of 27 like the OEM filter while other brands do not. They're less than six bucks at Rock Auto, I by a dozen at-a-time. I change my oil every 4K miles. That may be overdoing it but it's cheap insurance.
