    Is that the original filter? How often should it be replaced? I'm guessing annually would be alright.

    Waste of money. You can simply vacuum a cabin filter and rinse it with a hose if it is bad.

    Wow, that is pretty nasty. When I changed mine after 24months, it was just slightly off white with some dark colored spots.

    This. Best air filter ever IMHO. I had the K&N but even following the full cleaning process it was never as fresh as this thing is and as cheap as it is I bought 4 and will replace every 3 months from here on out in addition to using the Subaru cleaning kit on the compressor and vents 2x annually. First year my truck smelled like musky mold no matter what I did until I adopted this routine and minimized recirc to times when I’m in traffic in the city (and don’t want to be breathing a congested city’s rush hour exhaust). Haven’t smelled anything but clean air in months
