Air filter on Toyota 1.4 vvti Corolla - arnold2
The air filter on my Corolla 1.4 vvti needs replacing, according to Toyota, every 2 years or 20K miles on the full service (oil & filter @ 10K) - but I do 35K per annum, so have been getting through 2 minor & 2 main services every year for the last 2 years until the warranty ran out at 60K - expensive @ Toyota !
After one more Toyota full service (£180 thanks), I decided to get my local Kwik Fit to to the next oil & filter change - which they did very well (£26 with semi-synthetic) - in fact, the engine ran better than after the Toyota full service (?). But does the air filter need changing (if I do 35K per annum) twice a year ? I am planning on getting Toyota to do a full service once a year, then independents to do the rest...

Airfilter life depends almost entirely on mileage and conditions. Not time. If Toyota recommend 20k change under average conditions, then leaving it till 35k is a bit long. If you don't drive in dusty conditions (e.g. up the backside of trucks on a dry road or on unmade roads) then you should get away with it.
