Got the Hi-flo HF164 oil filter from MSG Bike Gear today for £8.00, that's near enough half price for me.

It gets even better, found a new supplier, got a HF164 oil filter for £4.51, that's over 70% cheaper than the BMW one.

Best price I can find at the moment for a Hiflo HF164 is £5.50 from BikespeedUK, HIFLO MOTORCYCLE OIL FILTER HF164 (bikespeeduk.com)
