No maintenance done. The air in south Florida is pretty clean no manufacturing and very close to the ocean so there's always a breeze - that may have something to do w/it.
I still don't think an engine air filter can be clean as new after 30,000 miles even in South Florida. I live in Seattle and we are by the ocean as well, and we get enough rain that our air is amongst the cleanest in the country (that's our reward for tolerating rain 10 months out of the year). Yet, STILL, after 30,000 miles, I can easily see dirt on the air filter.
I still think something is wrong with this scenario... either the air is not going through that filter, or someone changed it without you knowing, or there is a serious gap or hole somewhere in your air intake.
But to answer your original question, of course if it is clean as new, there is no point in changing it. But I would seriously look over the entire intake system to see if air is really going through that filter. I don't buy that it is if no one changed it recently...
