Re: do i not have a cabin filter

What difference would having one make? Never considered installing one. Maybe I should.

Re: do i not have a cabin filter

I had one when i had an Infiniti. I have seasonal allergies, so i liked it BUT it really earned it's name when i had BAD hangovers. Lookey here drinkers......this thing should be a necessity. Just get an insane hangover and park your mug in front of that thing on the ride home.......GLORIOUS

Do any sober ppl care to comment?

Any good prices out there?

Re: do i not have a cabin filter

if neveer had the filter then you need the full thing in a plastic box thing. if you already have one you can buy just the filter material.

not sure if aftermarket sells them just yet,,,,but I would think rockauto DOES HAVE SOEMTHING/

Re: do i not have a cabin filter

It's worth having, especially if you have allergies. Cleans up that wonderful air from the outside.

Re: do i not have a cabin filter

Yea, I typically try to replace them every 15k-20k miles... It's amazing how dirty ANY air filters get, lol.
