Anyone tried the Mobil 1 M1209 oil filter? Is it better than toyota filter? Or the same quality? The store (o'rielly) told me the correct one is M1102, after some research, the M1209 is the larger size, about the same as factory that will fit fine.

This has been hashed over and over. IIRC, Mobil 1 is not one of the best aftermarket filters. Just do a search on oil filters and you'll find lots of data on this.

If you don't use Toyota, the Wix filters are probably one of the best aftermarket. These are the ones sold by Napa, marketed as Napa Gold model 1515. You can pick them up very reasonably at Fleetfilter.com.

But, do what let's you sleep the best.
