Frams are not highly regarded on BITOG. They're *okay*, but for the money, there are much better options. I've done a lot of research on these, and the majority of folks seem to prefer Napa Gold, Wix, and Purolator. Fram filter media doesn't seem to be as good, nor is its construction, and also cardboard endcaps, another reason they should be less expensive, not more.
I personally like the Purolators. I've got two L14610's on the shelf now, and two PL14610's. That's the Premium Pluses and the Pure Ones. Advance Auto is a big carrier of Purolator filters, as is Pep Boys.
For Napa Gold/Wix, you can order them online from the several companies, and of course you can get the Napas at, well, Napa.
Also, don't count out Supertech (Wal-Mart) filters. They seem to do very well for a lot of people on BITOG, and they're really inexpensive and well-constructed.
I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.
