Quality filter, wouldn't use anything else. Tip for avoiding an oily mess when removing the filter (mk2 at least anyway), use the scissor jack on the sill to raise the height of the *right* hand side of the car up at an angle. Leave it like that for a few minutes and the oil will drain from the filter back into the engine. Don't get under the car when it's like this though, remove the scissor jack and raise the car properly before starting work.
Doing this should ensure that only a few drops escape instead of the deluge you get if the car is kept on the level.
