FYI, not sure if this has been posted yet (didn't see it in a quick search) but the "old" 15208AA15A filter has been superseded by SOA6351520815

I got my oil changed at the dealer this week (first time I've ever paid someone to change my oil in 10+ years). I popped the hood this morning to check the oil level and noticed the filter was different. I freaked out thinking they put the wrong one on, but a quick search shows that there's a new number.

Thanks for that additional info and the tsb. Looks like I'm heading to Napa for a new gold filter!

I wish they would go to a larger filter...better filtration and it would allow adding the full 5 qt jug at fill. No more "pour & check, pour & check, rinse and repeat"
I add the whole 5 and haven't noticed an issue.

Picked up a wix 57055 filter today. Not sure if it's going to be any better than the alternative Subaru filter, but at least it's proven and known to have the correct bypass valve pressure. And only $12 🙄
