Pulled the cabin filter, of course it's oem, dated 2011. Currently running filter less, the air flow was quite restricted.

You got all the goody out of that one. I wouldn't run filter-less too long though.

I won't be. I need to buy an engine air filter too, I'm sure that's never been changed either, unless that's part of the maintenence package.

It's not terrible for having 53k miles on it.

I change those with the engine air filter. NAPA has Wix. When I did mine last spring I got both for $18 on a Saturday only special. Quality is as good as OEM.

On one of my older accord, I never changed it for 8 years and ~80-90K, not sure if PO's did it either?

But now I am overactive on it laugh

I was expecting an oil filter, too. At that mileage the next question is, "do you want a turbo with that?" laugh

Itís dirty but not that bad.

I installed a cabin filter on my dadís car with half your mileage and it was twice as dirty.

The airflow was quite restricted because the filter was plugged up. It won't be as restricted with a brand new cabin filter* smile

*unless you buy the Bosch Hepa filter, then the flow might be restricted a good bit.

Thinking this is one of those unseen advances that improved cabin air quality a great deal vs. unfiltered air of past
