I only change my airfilter when it's dirty. probably every 30-40k. I've only changed it twice so far. Just hit 80k. BTW, it's a K&N. The last one was in there for two years and when I pulled it out, it was dirty but, still looked good. Instead of cleaning it, and waiting for it to dry, I bought another one. Cleaned and oiled the first one and put it back in the box to use next time. If it's dirty, change it. If not, leave it alone.
