Carbonio intake cleaning?

How often do you clean your filter in your carbonio intake system? or do you clean it at all??

When I checked my filter after 24k miles, it looked pretty dirty. I just bought a replacement filter from carbonio for $39

10-20k miles is optimal for any oiled filter. You don't need to buy replacements. The filter will last just about a lifetime, you just need to use the $10 K&N recharging kit from any auto parts store.
