Just changed the cabin air filter. Easiest task I did all day!?
Wasn't expecting to see quite a difference between the two.
Vehicle has 23xxxkms.

PSA. take 5 mins and check your own filter.

Umm...your original one was a carbon filter(naturally dark in color) and your new one is not. A basic white element filter would be a downgrade.

Im surprised the oem replacement is non-charcoal when it came with a charcoal one from the factory.

Original on my 2018 Touring was NOT a carbon filter.
I tore it apart to check because it was so dark like his.

Correct! One is the dirty one , the other is new. The difference is what you see. Carbon brakes (for aircraft), don't know of any carbon filters for air cabin on a CRV.....
