Yeah I know they're good but I also know MANN is usually good too and didn't know if anybody had experience with their cabin filters.

That is what I just put in the jetta, it is a decent filter, the material is much thicker than what I saw in the imprezas. I would assume their version would be similar to wix to meet oem specs

That's definitely not the worst I've seen...first with a mouse on it, but not the worst for sure!

Edit: THIS was by far the worst cabin filter I've ever pulled from a car.

I have seen some like that. I took one out of a Corolla with 60k miles on it.

Checked out the local inventory at Advance Auto Supply, AutoZone, and PepBoys. None carry the CAF in stock, surprising because this area has a lot of Subies around. Advance offered to order one for $30 plus an additional $6 to ship it to the store. No thanks. Looks like I'll be ordering my filter online.

How long has the filter been in service? (Months/miles)

If you're talking about the black square shaped thing in between the two screws, the glove box light?

Absolutely not! Lol...ok so go back to the picture I quoted...imagine the cabin filter pushed in all the way...right above it there is something else that sits in there but I couldn't figure out how to open that compartment. You can move it around with your fingers from under the cabin filter.

Okay, so we can eliminate that The only other thing right there is the blower assembly and the air filter slides into it. That latch above the filter is part of the duct that sits on top of the fan. I don't know about underneath it though.
