I trust Mobil One filters so I went with it.

In Europe, you could also use Mahle OC330, which is larger.

For "normal" use, for which longevity and durability rather than preventing catastrophic failure are the goals, I would tend to think that a larger filter is better.
In the end, it's easier for Subaru to stock one filter for all their 4-cylinder offerings.

I don't know about the Netherlands. However, Vince apparently already has a Spanish-language version out.
For the sake of our European OP, do you think ''Vince'' is hawking his wares over in Europe?
To be more on-topic, the OEM Subaru part # 15208AA100 is the same ''small'' size that the OP described for the replacement.

If Fuji Industries is happy with the smaller filter on their WRX and STi models, I'm content to use it on my '97 Impreza.
Yup first time I changed the oil on the WRX, I was like awwww how cute!!
