    I actually changed mine about 10,000 miles ago. (Car has 50k now) so that was 40k on a filter. I could *BARELY* blow through it. It was amazingly clogged up. My car starts so much faster now too.

    The 99 was getting changed every 10-15k miles. My wife's old car was worse than yours when we had it done at 65k for the first time. The car ran like new again.
