it'* a potnetially dangerous condition which may cause total car failure. better to sell your car (right now) (to me) (for cheap) than to worry about it...

</sarcasm>



nothin to worry about there...

Hmm.. that'* strange, my whole air filter looks like that little black spot.. is that normal? Or is that just how the air flows? Seriously, I think my whole air filter looks like that little black spot.

that'* what happens when you keep a filter in the car for 150,000 miles

Now if it was a hole instead of that spot, then youd have to sell your car to mkaake.
