This one is off of my motorcycle that has 8K on the odometer. Filter was on for approx 4k miles. Oil was Castrol Power1 10w-50. Not much of a stress test but it looks great anyway. Enjoy

LOL the tearolator people are going to be accusing you of pulling that ADBV out of a virgin filter.

Besides look at that gigantic hole in that shredded media! horse

I'll make sure everything is good and slathered with oil next time so as not to confuse the naysayers grin

Hmm... I didn't think to pay much attention to the stiffness. If memory serves me correctly I would equate the stiffness to something like the manila folder I have on my desk here.
