Well $50 once give or take, + supplies to recharge/ clean at 30-50k miles should probably end up costing less than replacing the O.E. filters every 12-20k miles over the lifetime of the vehicle, it seems to at least slightly perceptiblly have a positive benefit to throttle response vs the O.E. paper element filter, etc. I think it was worth it, but only you can decide. \

However if you do go this route I'd recommend not waiting until your current filter needs replacement as you will want to keep the original or a clean replacement o.e. filter if you need to drive the car while the K&N filter is drying after being cleaned and oiled.
