    Mileage is just 6000 kms. 1 year old.

    Still looks quite clean... Do I replace or keep using?

    questions...

    1. magkano isa nyan na orig/oem?
    2. magkano replacement nyan?

    kung mura replacement nyan, make sure it is replaced regularly. malaki effect nyan sa takbo ng oto.

    kung original yan and let's say, tig 2000 petot ang isa. i would still recommend a 5000 kms change. kung talagang mabigat ang price, thorough cleaning na lang.

    pero as is, dapat pinapalitan yan ng bago every 5000 kms. kaya dapat makakita ka ng replacement nyan...

    sir psylocke, please refer to your owner's manual. i think the air filter element should be replaced at 10K kilometers,(not sure though. i've forgotten since i switched to washable filters). if not 20K kilometers.

    Buy replacement and replace at every oil change. No need to remember to replace or not, tipid pa! hehehe.

    I use magic marker (pentel pen) and write the date/mileage installed on vehicle filters.

    disposable OEM air filters usually last between 10K to 20K km.

    high pressure air would do. but never high pressure water.

    you could do that in the service station where there is a hydraulic lift- i used to do it whenever bring my vehicles in the service station for underwash.
