Carbon Cabin Filter

I drive 2017 brz with pp in Seattle.
I have been using genuine subaru cabin filter which is not carbon filter.
The only carbon filter that I know that can filter pm2.5 particles into brz/86 cabin is Mann Filter made in Germany. They have a product line called FP 1827 which is not available in the states. I am back in Korea for two months and the air pollution is serious here. We run 4 air purifiers at home, which have pm2.5 proven hepa filter(13 and 14)installed. Everyone in my family drives cars with carbon canbin filter by bosch etc...
I know air quality is great in the state of washington but my vacation in Korea got me freaked out. I would like to buy a couple of Mann and try it back at home since it's only about $30 per one and oem is more than $20.
What do you think?

Since in Seattle the air rarely gets bad.. usually only when the fires start rolling in, you could probably get away with getting a face mask for when the air quality gets really bad.

At that point you should be wearing a mask when you go outside anyways, so might as well.

Stock one should be fine for your area.

I'm personally using a K&N washable cabin filter now because the past 2 summers I had to replace the stock filter due to extreme forest fire smoke contamination. My vacation spot is in the southern interior of BC so I would drive through thick smoke up to 10 times through the spring and summer. They had so much soot buildup my whole car would smell burnt inside until I replaced them. I don't expect the forest fire situations to improve in the coming years so the re-usable filter will pay for itself quickly.

I bought one of these during the fires in Cali: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1


Is the Mann Filter better than this? Can you please post a link for where to buy the Mann Filter?
