Come on Man, seriously, do you realize how many cars in the world don't even have cabin air filters? You make it sound like the AC evaporator and heater core will clog up and become useless. Also, if you drive your car with the windows down, the cabin will fill with dust on the surfaces, when you use the recirculation mode (max AC) in the HVAC system that dust will flow thru the evaporator from inside the cabin.
Clogging up wasn't what I said, but rather that just a little dirt will hurt the efficiency of the coils more than just a little. Why make it worse just to save a few dollars on the filter?

Sure the outside air has trash, but I know that foam insulation like the OP suggested will degrade to black dandruff that I really don't want in my car, ... or inside my AC/Heater cores.
