Good question ... but I have no clue....

On either this or one of the other filter threads it was hypothesized that BMW was on a binge to reduce the number of unique part numbers in the inventory system (a worthy goal) so was on a kick to consolidate to common base P/N where possible....

I've never understood why the world needed an entire wall of oil filters ....
It doesn't seem like there are that many variables in play here ...
Pretty much every Ford (and a bunch of other brands) up into the 80's used a Fram PH8A or equal..........
