Buy the filter that fits as HelloSailor suggests. If it does not leak then it could be made by Peugot, Fiat, Renault, Hyundai or ...
Why pay 4 times more for a label on the outside of the filter?
Different filters may have varying pressure relief valve settings and filtration capacities. When in doubt use "the right stuff". The incremental cost difference may be good insurance, and most people don't use that many filters in a year. Think of it as "you bet your engine" when trying to save a few dollars. Only way to know is to try it. It may be OK for short term but over time if pressures are not proper it could be bad? My opinion, based on my experiences, offered at no cost, and FWIW, your mileage may vary
