I changed my air filter today and found some black-sooty stuff on the outside filtration paper.

Is this cause for concern? I can't tell if it's just naturally from the air...I was expecting the filter paper to me more of 'dry' dirty, similar to the incabin filtration filters..

i dont see why it would........each manufacturer makes different air filters some "dry flow" meaning they are dry lol.......others use a oil type which when cleaned has to be re-oiled with the usually supplied oiling kit...

this is a basic explanation, anyone else feel free to elaborate

Looks to me like the filter is doing its job. Good timing to decide to change it.
