Filter has right at 5k miles, came off our 09 Pilot, 75% City - 25% Hwy. Right at 6 months of use time.
This is the previous generation filter by Filtech however I never seem to have an issue buying them on Amazon.
This is my first filter cut, I murdered the filter media trying to open it the glue held it in its shape very well one fiber end cap came off with a decent amount of force with no tools. The other end cap had to be ripped off with pliers.
Looks good. I've used and cut open a number of these filters on my old Integra. They've always worked and looked just fine. I'd happily use them again if I had to. I stopped using them because of the low efficiency numbers and I prefer to use mostly Fram or Wix now.
