2007 AURA XE
1998 SW2
Default The home made cabin filter works!

Roughly 14k miles on the filter and 10 months. Quite dirty. Cut the house filter into four. Taped the cut edges. Left the metal mesh. Looking at this works great. Still have two more. Four filters for $20 and a little time. Works for me.

P.S. The picture quality of my cell phone is surprisingly good. The camera isn't anything special. I think .7mp. Easier to access for me and bluetooth on the computer.

AWESOME! What have you noticed, fresher smell? Less dust?

Let me know. Because I'm considering this.

When new I believe things smell fresher. Dust was definately less. The old one looks like its been covered with charcoal. That much less in the air ducts. It certainly doesn't hurt having one.
