Cleaning the filter on a CAI

Good afternoon, everyone,

After reading through some of the install guides and looking at the photos of CAI installs, it seems that the positioning of the filter in the fenderwell makes it damn near impossible to clean the filter quickly without either removing the entire Intake or removing the front nose of the car. I only clean the filter every 3 or 4 months, but it doesn't appear to be very easy. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but a Short Ram Intake with a ram tube from the grille opening is starting to look better than a CAI.
