I change the metal one on my Hyundai Tucson everytime I change the oil. I have a friend who works as the parts manager at a Hyundai dealership and gave me about 40 of them. Going at my rate of 2 oil changes a year, I think they'll last for quite a while.

Metal and you flip it around every time you remove it.

The gaskets on all of my cars were either aluminum or copper. Unless the filter came with one which was rare I didn't replace them. I never had an issue reusing them as long as proper torque was applied.

I replace the metal ones at every oil change. They're like 16 cents from the dealer.
