    If you could find matching regular bulbs... why would anyone get HID?

    I clean my K&N every oil change at minimum. I do more after a massive dirt storm or some desert wheeling as it'll get caked up with dirt.

    Not a good idea:

    They clean BETTER when soiled, believe it or not.

    SilverStar #9145ST. It would at least look "whiter" than a regular H10 bulb.

    I personally would clean it at least every 25K, which is what I did on previous vehicles. There's no reason at all to do it every oil change though unless you're changing say every 15K.

    Buy yourself an AFE ProdryS instead of a K&N.
