I wouldn't use 'R' series for street-driven application. Like racinnut said, the 'R' filter has larger micron media so that oil circulation is not restricted at high RPM.

MPs are sold by the case and not for individual sale. You get a case of shrinkwrapped filters instead twelve individually boxed filters.
