FWIW my "lifetime" filter is still OK at 85,000 miles, so it's doing what it was designed to do...

If I lived on a dirt road I'd be "bitchin" about the design - but for most users it prevents the "over maintenance" that can cause more damage then not changing it....

(letting dirt into the intake tract when changing filters can be a problem, they usually get changed when they FIRST look dirty - long before any restriction..)
