Ordered the Bosch HEPA filter from rockauto thinking it'll help with my allergies. The airflow was so bad that the windows weren't able to defog in the winter which was a safety issue.

After doing some research on high efficiency filters, I came across the Japanese company Mlitfilter.

They claim better airflow than the most basic of filters:

I also ordered a bacteria and mold inhibitor, made from synthetic wasabi which attaches to the air filter.

It's made by Valeo and is sold by a few car companies as an official OEM part (ex: Honda)
