    Just thought to show what does our Hepa filter looks like after 70k km of city driving in urban area.

    Pretty disgusting if you ask me! Filter was $290 CAD, i think it is 220USD. I say it is worth the change. Symptom of it needing change is, you will smell outside air.

    @xG35 Thanks for sharing.

    Is there an equivalent alternative to the OEM one that is not as expensive? My car is now 3.5 years old but has only 45K km on it, so I'm thinking I may need to change mine soon (assuming it hasn't been changed already - I bought the car 8 months ago)

    Edit: Found this one - Model S HEPA Cabin Air Filter Replacement

    Has anyone used this? Is it a good alternative?

    The one you linked is not the same hepa filter, thats the cabin filter in HEPA style.

    The one i changed is the one that goes in the FRUNK. It is the big bio-hazard filter..
