My friend came by and I changed out his cabin filter on an old vw he bought with around 175k miles but I have no idea when the filter was changed, what do you guys think? I'm going with 100k

Yeah, It really depends on your environment.

It could be original since the car looked to be neglected. I forgot to look for a manufactre date but it was almost completely black with dirt so I doubt it would still be visible. This filter was nasty there was more dirt on it but when I removed the access panel and as I had to pull the filter since it was stuck a bunch of dirt got lose and fell on top of me since the brilliant minds at vw decided to put it facing down under the dash. I have way more appreciation now for my toyotas with their easy filter changes
