Blowing out/tapping out air filters "seems" like a good idea to extend their life. Don't believe it. That actually will imbed particles in the filter that will clog it again faster, even though you are reversing the stock flow direction. Just replace them.

eBay ad says 2010-2011. Is it the same filter on a 2012?

25k mikes is the interval to change unless under severe conditions.

for 12 bucks,I change it more often. Plus last year was a very heavy pollen year,looked like it after 12k. The filter was filty. But yes,depends on conditions. But for the price, I can afford to change it more often. doesn't hurt anything to do it. Afterall,it cleans the air coming into the cabin. Also I very rarely drive with the windows down.

Just got mine the other day. Happy with the quality. Looking at the ebay posting I think the OP helped the seller out quite a bit!

Because of your post, he sold 21 in the past 7 days versus 9 in 1 months time. I'd say you deserve something lol

I ordered two at that price, but only one arrived initially. The seller quickly sent the 2nd one once he knew there was a shipping error. Wish all vendors were as good or quick to correct their problems and not try to make them mine.

Recommended.

I had the same issue, but he was quick to resolve it. At this price I'm not complaining.
