OEM vs. Aftermarket Engine Air Filter

The air filters need replacement in my Accord and CR-V. All the dealers around town want $36 and change for one and $32+ for the other.
Aftermarket filters from Fram, Purolator, NAPA are significantly less.
Smart money to save-- or bite the dealer bullet?

napa filters are made by wix - perfectly respectable replacements. fram, i wouldn't bother with.
bottom line, i'd do it myself and use the aftermarket. drip a little oil on the filter just before installation too. oem honda filters have that from factory. aftermarket, i've not seen it.
