Thanks for giving the accurate info. I do change mine every 2 years since I do mostly city driving and everywhere I go these days, I'm driving through dust/dirt road/building construction sitesMaintenance manual shows:
Intermediate maintenance at 20,000, 60,000, 100,000, 140,000 miles
Inside the vehicle: Particle filter: Replace filter element
Additional maintenance every 80,000 miles, but no later than every 4 years
Macan S, Macan Turbo: Replace air filter elements
80,000 miles? Seriously? I'd really like to see that in Porsche print. No way would I leave any internal combustion engine's air filter/s in for that length of time. I can see 30-40,000 miles but you've got to remember that an engine is an air pump. It needs air to operate...clean air.
The checklist also indicates: at 4 yrs and dependent on use/dusty conditions. Owners should be aware of this & confirm that they're being checked. In my case, I assumed but did not confirm that they were checked at 60k nor asked the dealership why new engine air filters were not needed in my 5 yr. old Macan. It would be almost 8 yrs. old before it hits 80k and I'm changing them now at a reputable indy shop. Thanks to the forum members for their comments.I've attached the Maintenance Checklist - surprisingly, it indicates 80K miles - scroll down to find the entry.
