I changed my cabin and engine air filters today. This is what you get when you buy a used car with 46k on it.... sometimes I guess people don't take care of the details. You don't even wanna know what the engine filter looked like.

I replaced with STP filters on both.... any idea if those are good or not?

Someone posted a picture of a cabin air filter here a couple years back that was much, much worse. It had several INCHES of dust and whatever buildup on top of it. It was horrifying.
