I was sent the wrong filter by an online vendor so I went to the local parts store and sure enough, they had a Wix for the S85. Usually these are made in Austria/Poland but this one was South Korea. Anyway, it didn’t click in like the other filters, curious if you guys have noticed this before with mahle\mann. Just slipped on with enough resistance to not fall off. Probably won’t buy these again but I was in a pinch.

i haven't really heard it "click" , just snugly fitted. There are many videos on youTube, you can fast-forward to the frame where they are installing the oil filters.
In fact, there are two videos opposing each other: One says make sure the letters go on the top when plugged in, and second one says just the opposite :D
