TDI sediment filter - OEM is Delphi CAV filter?

I was thinking of fitting a sediment filter to my 300TDI and after looking the OEM filter & exploring some aftermarket options it looks like the OEM might be a Delphi 5836B120:

They look about the same to me - of course the Delphi unit is much cheaper than LR-tagged. For you TDI guys - does this look like the same filter to you?

They both do the same thing, in fact I like the glass bowl on the Delphi unit but you would not want to mount that in the wheel well. Under the hood would be fine I guess.

Personally....if I were to add something, I would put in a "pre-filter". A Standayne PM-100 with a 30 micron head or a Racor or such.
