Count me in for one, or two JJ.

FYI: My 2004 Toyota Corolla (which my lucky grandson inherited when it was displaced by our new MiEV) had/has a cabin air filter in the AC/heater/vent system.... much like the MiEV has.
Supposedly per Toyota you should replace it every year (gross overkill and marketing of parts IMO... but guess that varies with how much air per year you pull throgh it and how dirty your air is). I didn't change it until it had about 6 year on it, and it was, while not yet at the "oh my god, look at all that crap in it" stage, surprisingly dirty and appropriate to be changing it. Hope Mitsu's is easier to access than Toyota's weird pull out the gloved compartment proceedure was.

I haven't shipped any to Hawaii yet. They don't weigh much, so first class mail is about the same cost as mainland.

Its funny, I checked my Prius and the cabin air filter was totally loaded with dirt and leaves. The i-MiEV and the classic Prius (2001-2003) have the about same setup for the filter. I'm guessing most Toyota cars have a similar setup.

In any case its way easier on the I-MiEV than on the Leaf:
