Bought mine at Car Quest. Pours like water. 7000kms and still clean as the day I put it in.

Anyone put in a larger filter for longer service intervals? I used to do it on my truck all the time.

I've used it before, but wouldn't know what to tell you about it. Even if I would have done oil analysis, there would be too many variables to draw meaningful or practical conclusions from it.
As far as remote filter, John Garcia has installed an Amsoil filter system on his car and has had several lab tests over the past few years. He has stretched the change intervals safely to over 10000 miles IIRC. But I'm pretty sure he using the Amsoil products.
Here is the repository for enough data, hypothesis, conjectures, opinions, taste tests etc to drive you crazy, or keep you occupied for two months: https://bobistheoilguy.com

The normal change interval on my 2010 LX is nearly 10k miles by the maintenance minder (helps that the car never gets started unless it's going at least 10 highway miles). Use Subaru 0W-20 since new - now at 120k miles with zero oil consumption.

That model year IS NOT effected by oil consumption per the recall.

Correct, I was just trying to point out that a 10k mile interval isn't that unusual.
