OK part two of that is I don't drive on dirt roads much and so plain ol' low tech paper filters last 80,000 miles or more but by that time I change 'em just outta sheer guilt. PAPER filters save me money AND provide the best filtration AND I merely tap 'em out from time to time- no screwing with cleaning and re-oiling. All the EFI stuff downstream stays worry-free clean too.
I'm with Frank on this one. (I agree a lot with you lately) The paper filter for my car is $16 not on sale and the K&N is $36. Drive 60K look at it beat on it and press on.
