I've bought OEM oil filters for my 2005 from several different dealers, and have always gotten part number B6Y1-14-302-9A when I asked.
I just was ordering some things from Rosenthal up in DC, and saw that they don't carry that part number any more, now they carry B6Y2-14-302-P1.
They note that it's a "new" filter, and requires a different wrench size, which suggests the dimensions are somewhat different, not just a part number change.
I've searched, but can't find any info on this new part number, and this is not the new filter for the Series 2, N3R1-14-302, which I think is a completely different filter with different bypass pressure.
Anyone have any information on these, or have gotten them from a local dealer?

Yea no reason that I am aware of to have to buy a mazda filter for a s1...
Other than the Mazda filter being better than the majority of aftermarket filters.
There's a member here who was very knowledgable about filters, and sliced open every one he got his hands on. His posts were a few years back, and I did not bookmark them. But the conclusion was that a handful of the premium aftermarket filters were about as good, but most aftermarket did not even come close.
