    Bought an OEM filter from their store a while back.
    This arived in a proper honda box packaging and all looked good
    Item put away till the next oil change.
    Now I read some fake honda filters are being sold as OEM

    Took mine out and checked the catual filter and it is not OEM!:eek::mad:

    I am confident that SBS has not advertised an OEM product and supply and substitue knowingly.

    I have email them with this shocking news and now waiting for their reply

    check the parts you receive carefully. SBS or any other supplier

    SBS has been very good and offered a refund as all of there honda "OEM" filters are purflux made in france
    So has Honda have switched suppliers and why
    I expected the element to have at least a honda label on it!
