if that's true, don't be alarmed when you remove it, it may look pretty bad.

50k you will want to change ASAP. Fiancé did hers at 25k and it was very gray. Did mine at about 7-8k to compare and it wasnt all that bad yet.

I guess it would work in a pinch. But to me,blowing it out would be like recycling toilet paper.

Got mine in the Mail today.

Very high quality,fit like a glove,model specific instructions with Camaro pics.

Looks to be imported from Sweden or Germany,not China
Doesn't say but,has that IKEA look to the packaging.

Awesome Deal.

Not personal exp. just my opinion. Think about it,blowing it off? Don't believe that would work. It looks like its designed to trap dirt and such. Not release it.

Yep, can't beat it for the price. At that price you can change once a year.

Is it an easy install? How do you get to your cabin filter?

Open the hood pop the weatherstrip off the wiper cowl on the passenger side. unscrew i think it's 3 button looking screws and switch out your filter then put everything back together. Least thats what i've seen i'm assuming they havent changed anything year to year.
