Anyone thinking about replacing the intake air filter with a K&N drop in, it isn’t necessary. You can hold off until having to replace the air filter if this is something you usually do.

Today I pulled the air filter to swap in a K&N - the first thing I do for almost any new vehicle - and when I pulled the Mazda OEM filter it was a similar cloth filter! Not the restricting paper filters that usually come standard as OEM equipment.

I am pleasantly surprised and have saved it to stand in when I take out the K&N for cleaning and re-oiling.

I always replace the standard filters in my vehicles with K&N ones and already ordered one for my CX-50 now too. I didnt't even think about looking at the OEM one first...haha. Oh well, like you said, I'll save it too.
