    Default Just Serviced the car and got a "dirty" shock

    I know that they say the filters will last 12 months or so but this is what I found after 9 months (air ands pollen filters).

    On them second two pics, the filter on the right is a charcoal filter and is therefore naturally a dirty grey colour, the one on the right is purely a pollen filter. Pick them both up and feel the weight difference
