It's a little dirty, though the Prius it came out of was carefully maintained all its life.

How hard is it to replace ? Never mind, just watched a video.... Will take more time to empty the glove box. Since you have it out, I'd vacuum it and put it on my to-do list. It doesn't need changed just from visual.

Nobody can tell for certain just by seeing the photograph. Very likely it's ok, though, and filters better than a new one would.

Air filter elements live in boxes above large chambers which have small entrance ports. This creates "velocity drops".
Larger particles fall away due to their mass.
Finer particles are left for the filter to catch.
I think they look cleaner after use than some filters.
Nobody says if dirt particles of different size fill a filter differently.
I don't know.....

The good thing is that regular maintenance factors in "doing it more often".

EXAMPLE: If you get a "Tearolater" oil filter you can extract some comfort from the likelihood of the next oil change being OK.

Install a restriction gauge and then you'll know when the filter needs changing.

Between your restriction gauge and my airflow measuring tool, we should be able to determine if replacement is needed.

The way you put this sounds like it's an older car and this is the OEM filter. Why not change it out?

How 'bout because there's no reason to do so? The engine won't be impressed.
