This was mine at about 15,000 miles.  The sun is behind the filter.

My air filter is dancer, walks on all roads. Maintenance, here is the result after 18,000 miles, it is always in order.

You might want to change it at 15k miles based on that picture...

I screwed up, after I posted I had the perfect edit and then was late for work and forgot to change it.  It was meant to read:

"Your filter performs well, don't let it get away!"

8.5 years, 43,428miles.  Here is the photo.  Dirty, for sure.  But not as bad as I thought it might be- I can still see light through it with a flashlight.  Most of the discoloration is on the leading edges of the folds, it is much cleaner further down into the pleats. Even so, this was considerably overdue.
