Did you get that after a service?
Its definitely not new. Would say a year old at least
I have had my car serviced yesterday at 18months old. they done the job rather quickly so I checked the filters and that is the filter that was apparently brand new yesterday.

I believe the recommended change interval for an air filter is 60k. So unless you specifically requested they change it during your recent service I would say they won't have swapped it out for new. I changed mine myself as my car is 4.5 years old at 17k & the old filter wasn't at all bad dirt wise but had a lot of tiny particles when I started tapping it over my work bench. Yours has definitely not been changed.

Yes that is understandable. Looks to be they have charged me for a full service and done an interim service. But charged me for a full. At least I will now know for next time. Thank you

The parts should be listed on the receipt /invoice. Is the filter listed?
