I've had my AFE on for over a year and it still looks new. There are some small particles in between the pleats but otherwise it looks fine. Some people clean their filter every few months, other wait 20k miles. I guess the reason why I wouldn't want it clean it TOO much is perhaps wearing out the element since I have a dry filter, I would need to wash it in soapy water.

Just wondering how often, or if you guys have ever "recharged" or re cleaned your cone filter for a CAI?

Thanks!

I have the Mopar CAI on the Challenger and a UNI air filter on my wife's Mini Cooper. I clean the Challenger a minimum of twice a year: more if it has been driven harder than usual (e.g. racing) or in smoky/dusty conditions (e.g. cross country trips). The Cooper's I've only done one a year because it's not driven as often. Depending on conditions and how often you drive, I'd say do at least once every 6 months (adjusting to your particular conditions).
