Subaru uses tons of inferior parts to save cost, this isn't a high-end luxury car.
Being high end has nothing to to with it. High end cars use inferior parts I'm sure. The P1 is a great filter and I use them but no one is going to convince me a blue Honeywell filter is going to hurt my car with 3000 mi OCI's. Banjo screen clogging is the result of one of two things; Lack of oil changes or something catastrophic going on in the motor. Period.
