Under the "ARTICLES" tab at the top of the page, you'll find an article that several of us contributed to a number of years ago outlining replacement parts that you might be able to find in your local parts house to fit your Classic Mini.  In that article I mentioned that any oil filter for a 2.2L Chrysler product will work just fine on any Mini that takes a spin-on filter.  Most aftermarket filters will filter out particles as small as 20 microns.  Well, along comes K&N with their "Pro" series of oil filters and they filter out particles as small as 10 microns.  The one to fit the Mini is the PS-1002 and it's quite reasonable.  I just ordered a couple of them from walmart.com for $5.38 each, plus tax, and free in-store pickup.  I've seen them online for as little as $4.51 but then you have to pay shipping.

I've started using a special Bosch oil filter, the DistancePlus #D3330 on my Mini.   Not cheap, but Bosch claims it is the pretty darn good.

Thanks Bruce!  I've added that one to the Parts Equivalency article as well.
